1. Emotional and Spiritual Care in Disaster Operations - Instructor: Greg Young

The purpose of this course is to enhance the skills of clergy, chaplains, mental health professionals, and trained crisis responders to provide effective emotional and spiritual care to meet the disaster related needs of disaster responders and disaster affected families and individuals within disaster operations by integrating CISM principles, interventions, and practical care. Upon completion of this course the participant will be able to:

  • Articulate the role of the ES caregiver from one’s own faith tradition and the elements of ESC provided in a pluralistic disaster environment,
  • Clearly define the role and function of the ES caregiver within the Incident Command System and disaster relief operation,
  • Identify the physical, psychological, emotional, interpersonal and spiritual impact of disasters,
  • Provide emotional and spiritual care to disaster survivors, first responders, and relief workers through a multifaceted range of ESC interventions,
  • Assess one’s own suitability to provide ESC within the trauma and disaster context, and
  • Identify a personal self-care plan for maintaining one’s own emotional, physical, and spiritual health during deployment.

This is a 13 contact hour, two-day course.

Attendees must be present for the entire course to receive a certificate.


2. Individual Crisis Intervention and Peer Support - Instructor: Sterling Claypoole

This is the best “first” CISM course to take, but you can take the other course above without having this one as a pre-requisite.  Crises intervention is NOT psychotherapy, but rather a specialized acute emergency mental health intervention which requires specialized training. As physical first aid is to surgery, crisis intervention is to psychotherapy. Most of the crisis intervention that is done is done individually, one-to-one.  This course is designed to teach participants the fundamentals of, and a specific protocol for, individual intervention.

This is a 13 contact hour, two-day class.

Attendees must be present for the entire course to receive a certificate.
