With all the pressing issues in society, combined with personal and professional stresses, it is not uncommon for people to find themselves overwhelmed and feeling the emotional, physical, mental, and behavioral impacts of stress. Crisis situations and traumatic stress can interfere with a person’s sense of safety, emotional control, personal perception, sense of self-efficacy, and of course, their relationships. While responses to trauma can look like mental health issues, they are not the same! They are reactions and usually do not result in a long-lasting mental health problem.
This interactive self-paced online training will define personal crisis, review the body’s physiological stress response, and provide participants with tools to respond to individuals experiencing crisis. Participants will learn the CAPE model (Connecting, Appraising, Problem Solving and Engagement) for responding to individuals in crisis and will have opportunities to practice using role plays to support youth, parents, co-workers, and loved ones who may need support.
