COMMUNITY CARES: MENTAL HEALTH RESPONSE TRAINING

Live and in person!

This is the classroom-based version of our very popular online mental health training. CC:MHRT addresses crisis response and beyond. Other content includes: local resources; stigma; culture; community-based teams; addiction and more. We can teach all 8 modules or any portion of them. Each module is 3 hours long.  Learners complete tests and homework as part of this course.

FOCUS ON...

- Anger & Aggression

- Autism Spectrum Disorders

- Anxiety & Related Disorders

                  or 

- Addiction / Alcoholism

These courses specifically focus on common diagnoses and mental health problems, including Anger, Anxiety, Autism or Addiction. We can also design focus courses for other diagnoses. (Each course is usually 6 hours long, typically delivered in two 3-hour sessions.  An all-day approach can also be used.)

GFY! (GO FIND YOURSELF!)

Promoting mental wellness for individuals and teams.

These are exercise-based courses that build on the lessons of positive psychology.  Rather than focusing on mental illness, they create personal growth, helping learners define and improve their mental wellness.  They’re great courses for team building, staff development and reducing burnout. These courses can be tailored easily to fit your agency’s needs.  They fit well into in-service training or retreat-based training, and durations can be almost anything you desire.

COMMUNITY LIVING LEADERSHIP ACADEMY

Build your organization from within.

This course is taught in 6 sessions, broken into three modules. Learners develop a strong sense of the history and philosophy of community living and psychosocial approaches; develop specific management tools and an understanding of leadership styles; and work on personal development and self-care.  They produce and present a Visioning Assignment as part of the course.

CISD - CRITICAL INCIDENT STRESS & DEBRIEFING

Be well. Stay well.

This course teaches students about Critical Incident Stress Syndrome, the importance of understanding stress, trauma and debriefing; and how to perform Peer-to-Peer Debriefing.  (6 - 8 hours, usually in two sessions.)

COMMUNICATE LIKE A PRO!

This course focuses on many elements of professional communication, including relationship-building; presenting; meeting practices; written communications; therapeutic communication skills; conflict resolution; effective feedback and more. (9-12 hours, usually in 4 sessions, but can be done as a workshop.)

ACTIVATE! VOLUNTEER TRAINING

Give your volunteers their best chance to contribute.
