The Group Crisis Intervention training course is designed to present the core elements of a comprehensive intervention response strategy. It's one in a series of Crisis Intervention and Disaster Response workshops being hosted by the Rock Church to better equip those who desire to serve our community in the aftermath of disasters and/or critical incidents. It is the first time that this course has been offered at the Rock Church. Instruction will cover issues of what people need to know in advance of a crisis, as well as effective approaches that can help individuals and groups of people to recover from a traumatic experience. The Group Crisis Intervention course specifically equips participants in how to deliver special intervention techniques such as debriefings, defusings, demobilizations and more. This course is designed to specifically teach crisis intervention and emergency response skills to church members, crisis response teams, chaplains, mental health practitioners and basically just about anyone who wants to help others through a tie of crisis. Participants must attend all sessions to receive certification.
