Event Date: Monday, May 19, 2014 - 8:00am - Tuesday, May 20, 2014 - 4:30pm
Event Location: PA
Address: Sponsored by EMMCO West, Hermitage Fire Rescue, Hermitage Police Dept, and St. Paul's United Church of Christ
541 Maple Drive
Hermitage, PA, US
Event Cost: $100
Event Desc: When firefighters, police officers, emergency medical service personnel, and other emergency responders respond to scenes that are really bad, they sometimes need psychological, emotional and spiritual care that goes beyond one-on-one counselling. Since 1983, that care has been provided via Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM), created to enable emergency service personnel (and others) to return to their daily routine more quickly and with less likelihood of developing post-traumatic stress disorder. Group Crisis Intervention introduces the fundamentals of CISM and participants will leave with the knowledge and tools to provide several group crisis interventions: demobilizations, defusings and the Critical Incident Stress Debriefing. Join us for a great 2-day class. Registration includes breakfast, lunch and snacks both days. Be sure to invite your chaplain, too!
