Strategic Response to Crisis

  • Strategic Response to Crisis (SRC)


    Knowing what sequence of crisis intervention processes to use for which individuals or groups, at what times, and under what circumstances is crucial to all effective early intervention programs. The course will present essential information for the assessment of both crisis situations and the effects of critical incidents. Strategic planning and tactical decision making are emphasized, as are rationales for choosing one set of crisis intervention processes over another. This course requires previous training and experience. ICISF’s “Group Crisis Intervention” and “Individual Crisis Intervention and Peer Support” should be viewed as prerequisites.
