Event Description

ICISF Assisting Individuals in Crisis & Group Crisis Intervention (NC-8-002)

This 3-day course combines ALL of the content of ICISF’s Assisting Individuals in Crisis & Group Crisis Intervention courses.

Crisis Intervention is NOT psychotherapy; rather, it is a specialized acute emergency mental health intervention which requires specialized training.

As physical first aid is to surgery, crisis intervention is to psychotherapy. Thus, crisis intervention is sometimes called “emotional first aid”. Designed to

present the core elements of a comprehensive, systematic and multi-component crisis intervention curriculum, this course will prepare participants to

understand a wide range of crisis intervention services for both the individual and for groups. Fundamentals of Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM)

will be outlined and participants will leave with the knowledge and tools to provide several group crisis interventions, specifically demobilizations, defusings

and the Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD). The need for appropriate follow-up services and referrals when necessary will also be discussed.

This course is designed for anyone in the fields of Public Safety, Disaster Response, Emergency Services, Healthcare, Homeland Security, Mental Health,

Military, Spiritual Care, and Traumatic Stress.
