Crisis Intervention & Communication Skills @ Pace Community Support, Sexual Assault and Trauma Centre

This workshop will provide you with a strong baseline on how to intervene and help individuals who are in crisis. You will look at what grief is, and how someone can come out the other side of grief, and grow. You will explore grief and stress caused by a one-time event, or a series of events, and look at coping with different individuals’ personalities, and how they may handle emotions, such as grief, differently. Finally, you will learn Crisis Intervention theories, from both lecture and experiential format, with a chance to apply and practice these skills in a classroom setting. You will walk away with the knowledge and baseline strategies to communicate with and help someone who is in crisis. (10.5hrs)

Facilitated by: Jacquie Aitken, BA, BSW, RSW, Executive Director of Pace
