Basic Crisis Intervention Training

The Rock Church is sponsoring a special series of crisis intervention, trauma and disaster response courses to equip people to serve our community. These trainings prepare people to establish hope, comfort, compassion and the guidance of Jesus Christ to people in their times of crises and brokenness. The first course in the series is the Basic Critical Incident Stress Management workshop entitled “Pastoral Crisis Intervention-1.” This course may be thought of as the combination of Biblical faith-based training with traditional techniques of crisis intervention that prepares the church for work in the field of trauma response as a witness to our community in times of need. The purpose of this 13-hour course is to assist the participants in learning how Christian-based interventions and traditional psychological crisis interventions may be effectively integrated. This workshop is certified by the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation Church members, chaplains, counselors, mental health professionals and pastors all benefit from these practical guidelines and strategies for people-care in times of need. The following topics will be covered in detail in this workshop:

  • The nature of crisis situations and how to thrive
  • Crisis intervention strategies as a ministry
  • Basic Chaplaincy interventions
  • Common signs and symptoms of stress reactions
  • Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM)
  • Psychological and emotional interventions
  • Understanding the extent of support services
  • Faith-care interventions
  • Common mistakes in crisis Intervention
  • Most challenging trauma situations
  • Self-care considerations
