Do you know how to lead people out of a Crisis like the Parkland Shooting?

If you were at the scene of a community shooting, workplace suicide, terrorist attack or a catastrophic natural disaster, would you know exactly what to do?

Would you know what to say to protect that person from developing PTSD?

Would you know what do to protect yourself or those you care about from the dangers of secondary traumatic stress?

South Florida 2-day Crisis Certification is only $179 (advance registration)

This two-day crisis certification course was designed after the terrorist attacks of 9/11 by clinical experts for the United States National Guard and the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation as a rapid psychological response to community trauma.

It prepares you to manage a major crisis and lead a critical incident stress debriefing session, (CISD) while keeping yourself safe from post-traumatic psychological harm.

There are eight real life training scenarios in this certification class to equip you in dealing with community crisis events. You will learn the early warning signs of PTSD and how to prevent secondary psychological trauma while working as a first responder providing psychological first aid.

This rapid crisis stabilization certification, in partnership with Florida Mental Health Counselors Association (FMHCA) and Mental Health Counselor’s Association of Palm Beach (MHCAPB), is taught by Dwight Bain (The Lifeworks Group), an ICISF certified crisis response trainer who worked at Ground Zero after the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and has equipped thousands with psychological survival skills to use until emergency management teams can arrive.  More crisis events will come to Florida – are you going to be prepared to help or be a helpless bystander?

“Up to 35% of those exposed to traumatic events such as disasters and terrorism will develop significant post-traumatic psychological distress and perhaps PTSD.” –U.S. National Guard

This certification course is for therapists, counselors, counseling students, clergy, teachers, nurses, chaplains and lay counselors interested in crisis response.
