Program description:
All mental health professionals need to be prepared to respond to individuals who are in crisis. In order to do this, clinicians need not only strong clinical skills, but also knowledge of information about legal state mandates, system resources, as well as the current research supporting best practices in crisis assessment and intervention. This four hour training is designed for mental health professionals who desire to increase their confidence and knowledge in responding to mental health crisis situations. Topics covered will include the physical, psychological, and emotional aspects of crisis, Ohio Revised code and associated legal mandates, and local community resources. Specific clinical skills associated with accurate assessment, intervention, and safety planning, as well as ethical and cultural considerations, will be addressed.

Goals:

  • Understand the various types of mental health crisis that individuals experience and increase skills in assessment, intervention, and safety planning.
  • Increase awareness of Ohio MH Law and knowledge of system resources.
  • Understand impact of suicide behavior in the U.S. and the factors that contribute to it.
  • Understand the emotional and mental factors that contribute to crisis experiences, their associated symptoms, and the process of recovery.
  • Understand the issues of ethics and culture in crisis intervention and prevention.

Objectives

  • Discuss what a mental health crisis is and differentiate between a situational and developmental crisis.
  • Identify various local mental health system community resources and know appropriate ways to access those resources.
  • Discuss aspects of suicide prevention; the impact of substance abuse on depression and suicide; appropriate methods for interacting with violent individuals and the debriefing process following a completed suicide.
  • Identify the required components of a face-to-face assessment as described in the Ohio Revised Code.
  • Perform a risk assessment of lethality and apply knowledge of crisis assessment and intervention to hypothetical situations.
  • Develop a safety plan that complies with the standards mandated by Ohio Law.
  • Demonstrate ability to use therapeutic skills (active listening, encouragement, paraphrasing, reflecting, emotional labeling, validation and affirmation) to deescalate or respond to a crisis situation.
  • Explain the impact of cultural identify on the experience of crisis and crisis intervention.
