Assisting Individuals in Crisis is the first of the three consecutive Faith-Based First Responders courses. Crisis intervention is not psychotherapy, rather it is a specialized acute emergency mental health intervention that requires specialized training. As physical first-aid is to surgery, crisis intervention is to psychotherapy.  Thus crisis intervention is often called “emotional first-aid”. This interactive program is designed to teach participants the fundamentals of crisis intervention along with proper protocols for assisting individuals in the throes of crisis situations. Level 2 will be offered in May!
