During this two-day interactive program, participants will learn:

  • Trauma informed practice: How to shift focus from “At Risk” to an “At Promise” perspective
  • How to apply a crisis intervention model in crisis situations
  • How to effectively assess crisis situations
  • How to facilitate the development of a short-term coping plan for a person in crisis
  • How to spot the warning signs for suicide and effectively intervene
  • New Approaches for helping men
  • Effective ways to find the “keys” to unlock hope in a person in crisis
  • Community resource information
