Event Description

Strategic Response to Crisis (HCC-0061)

Knowing what sequence of crisis intervention processes to use for which individuals or groups, at what times, and under what circumstances is crucial to all effective early intervention programs. The course will present essential information for the assessment of both crisis situations and the effects of critical incidents on people involved in those situations. Learn to create an effective plan of action to assist those in crisis and complete a series of exercises designed to sharpen assessment and crisis planning skills. Strategic planning and tactical decision making are emphasized, as are rationales for choosing one set of crisis intervention processes over another. This course builds confidence that crisis interventionists will make the right choices of interventions for the populations they are assisting under specific circumstances.

This is a specialty CISM class taught by International Critical Incident Stress Foundation instructor Paul Jockimo.
