Learn what to do in the
days following a trauma when crisis intervention may be needed. Tragedies,
like Hurricane Katrina and 9/11, leave behind devastation and destruction.
Because victims are constantly reminded of the trauma, their state
of crisis is prolonged and heightened. Very specific intervention
techniques will be demonstrated which are designed to stabilize those
in crisis in the days that follow exposure, at a time when specific
trauma intervention would not be appropriate.
You do not need to be enrolled in the Certification Program to attend this course.
