June 3, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$125.00
Instructor: Natalie Bembry-Moore, EdD, LCSW
Crisis Intervention and Self-Care is a class offered in a virtual format. This class will focus on both crisis intervention and self-care. First, the class will familiarize participants with what crisis intervention and trauma response are and the acute psychological distress that is often associated with trauma and/or substance use. The focus will be on participants gaining knowledge on the importance of understanding and treating crisis and trauma in combination with substance use. As well as training participants on working with clients who have had these experiences. Participants will become familiar with different frameworks, assessment models and intervention models. The class will familiarize participants with ethical responsibilities (review), clinical supervision, and the importance of continual growth. The second half of the class participants will identify the personal and professional risks to health and mental health for counselors and learn self-care and other strategies to ensure professional effectiveness. The relevance and study of compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma will be addressed. Finally, experiential exercises geared towards expanding participants’ awareness and understanding of the psyche/soma relationship will serve as the basis for discussion of self-care, professional and personal well-being.
