This course is designed to cater for those who have been providing individual support services after crisis for at least two years and who have previously completed the Assisting Individuals in Crisis course (or equivalent).
This training (usually two courses of two days each but delivered as a three day course due to the accreditation and experience of the trainers) is to assist participants to respond effectively to incidents and crises and to support people in the community, their colleagues and the organisation in the most appropriate way. It focuses on both individual and group processes and is useful for all staff and particularly those in any peer support role within workplaces.
This course focuses on the sequence of crisis intervention processes to use, for which individuals and/or groups, at what times and under what circumstances.
Training in strategic planning and tactical decision making is the cornerstone of this course, along with preparedness of the crisis support personnel.
This course requires prior completion of the Assisting Individuals in Crisis and Group Crisis Intervention training programs (GRIN) or equivalent.
