Service Description

0800 to 1700 November 27-28, 2023 Arlington PD South Station 1030 SW Green Oaks Blvd. Arlington, TX 76017 **Prerequisite: Assisting Individuals in Crisis (formerly Individual Crisis Intervention and Peer Support) Most psychological crisis intervention is done one person to one person, rather than in groups. These interactions may be face-to-face (in person or electronically), telephonic, via email, or even via text messaging. The SAFER-R model of individual psychological crisis intervention was developed to serve as a simple protocol or procedural guide to aid in conducting such individual psychological crisis interventions. This two day course builds upon, and is the logical continuation of, the basic ASSISTING INDIVIDUALS IN CRISIS course. Using the SAFER-R framework as a platform, participants are introduced to scenario based variations of the model. Topics such as advanced psychological triage, grief, suicide intervention, challenges in follow up and referral, and self-care are addressed. In addition, participants are asked to evaluate pre-recorded video examples of crisis intervention using the SAFER-R model. Course Highlights: Natures & definitions of a psychological crisis and psychological crisis intervention Nature and definition of critical incident stress management and its role as a continuum of care Empathic communication techniques Practice of psychological triage SAFER-Revised model of individual psychological crisis intervention in s suicide scenario SAFER-Revised model of individual psychological crisis intervention in a “follow-up” or referral scenario Risks of iatrogenic “harm” associated with psychological crisis intervention and will further discuss how to reduce those risks Principles of self-care
