2) April 16-17, 2019: Advanced Group Crisis Intervention

The 'Advanced Group Crisis Intervention’ is primarily for those who would like to become an ICISF Instructor. It builds on the knowledge base which was obtained through the Group Crisis Intervention course. This course is designed for individuals who are already trained in the critical incident stress debriefing format. It will also be useful for those working extensively with traumatized victims from various walks of life. By the end of this course, participants will have been exposed to specific, proven strategies to intervene with those suffering the ill effects of their exposure to trauma. This course requires previous training and experience; ICISF’s 'Group Crisis Intervention' is viewed as a prerequisite.


3) April 18-19, 2019: Grief Following Trauma

The 'Grief Following Trauma' will cover key grief and loss concepts relating to trauma and traumatic death. Participants will increase their knowledge of how trauma impacts the grief process and will gain skills for evaluating and supporting individuals who have experienced traumatic death and loss. This course is designed for anyone who works with people who experience grief and loss following a traumatic event. This course is required to become an Emotional & Spiritual Care Provider II.
