Designed to present the core elements of a comprehensive, systematic and multi-component crisis intervention curriculum, the Group Crisis Intervention course will prepare participants to understand a wide range of crisis intervention services. 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, defusing, and the Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD). The need for appropriate follow-up services and referrals, when necessary, will also be discussed.
Group Crisis Intervention is a 14-hour program. Typically taught over the course of two consecutive days. However, the instruction can be divided into smaller segments if needed to accommodate schedules.
