Audience: Individuals who might need to respond to a crisis and provide support to students, families, or co-workers at home or abroad. No prior experience or training is necessary.

We all hope that we will never be called upon to deal with a crisis in our office, university, community, or abroad.  Unfortunately, regardless of your job, it is likely that in your personal or professional career, you will be involved in some type of crisis. Fortunately, there are many steps you can take to prepare your office and yourself.  Learn techniques to use when dealing with family, friends, and co-workers during and immediately after a crisis. This half day, interactive workshop is designed to provide the conceptual framework for dealing with a variety of scenarios and to develop techniques to prepare and respond to any crisis.

Workshop Objectives:

  • Identify the continuum of an isolated incident to a crisis at various levels
  • Develop a framework for creating a response plan in your office or evaluating an existing plan
  • Understand the need and framework for an incident response
  • Practice techniques used by the Red Cross Crisis teams and  Psychological First Aid (Brymer) to assist those in crisis
