      Suicide Prevention, Intervention & Postvention
      Why do people kill themselves? How do I ask someone if they are feeling suicidal? What do I do if they say they ARE suicidal? How do I deal with the strong emotions suicide generates? This course will provide answers for these and other questions many of crisis interventionists have about suicide. It will provide participants with basic information about suicide as well as help participants develop practical skills for prevention, intervention and postvention. Small group role plays will allow participants to apply the suggested techniques as they are learned.

      • Risk factors for suicidal behavior
      • Frequent motivations for suicide

      Emotional & Spiritual Care in Disasters
      This advanced level course will enhance your skills to provide effective emotional and spiritual care (ESC) to meet the disaster-related needs of disaster responders and disaster affected families and individuals within disaster operations. This course builds on the crisis intervention principles taught in the Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) core courses to effectively integrate these principles within ESC teams for appropriate care throughout the disaster continuum from the immediate to long-term recovery process.
      What you will learn:
      • Articulate the role of the ES caregiver from one’s own faith tradition and the elements of ESC provided in a pluralistic disaster environment.
      • Clearly define the role and function of the emotional and spiritual caregiver within the incident command system and disaster relief operation.
      • Identify the physical, psychological, emotional, interpersonal and spiritual impact of disasters
      • Provide emotional and spiritual care to disaster survivors, first responders and relief workers through a multifaceted range of ESC interventions within a multi-phasic continuum of the post trauma/disaster aftermath.
      • Assess one’s own suitability to provide ESC within the trauma and disaster context.
      • Identify a personal self-care plan for maintaining one’s own emotional, physical and spiritual health during deployment.

      Grief Following Trauma
      In the course of one's career, it is inevitable that professionals will encounter traumatic death and loss issues both personally and professionally. Professionals often feel ill prepared to provide effective care throughout the grief process. This course will cover key grief and loss concepts relating to trauma and traumatic death. Participants will increase their knowledge of how trauma impacts the grief process and will gain skills for evaluating and supporting persons who have experienced traumatic death and loss.
      What you will learn:

      • To identify normal and pathological grief responses.
      • To describe factors that may help or hinder the traumatic grief process.

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).
