Event description
This seminar explores means of preventing crisis, interventions for lowering arousal, and relapse prevention planning.

About this Event

This seminar briefly reviews the cycle of crisis vulnerability, crisis state, and resolution. It also explores means of preventing crisis-creating situations, designing interventions for lowering arousal, and creating opportunities for teaching new coping skills in the direct aftermath of a crisis.

Factors influencing aggression-prone reactions are discussed, as is the difference between “acting out” and purposeful or predatory violent acts.

The relationships among stress and symptom management and relapse prevention are explored. Relapse prevention planning processes are presented that are useful for persons with CODs.

This seminar is free of charge and provides PCB and SW/LPC credits.

Course Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Define “crisis” and “emergency” and identify major symptoms and stressors that contribute to higher risk potential for a crisis
  • Identify means of quickly assessing the person, the environment and oneself in order to promote safety and limit the duration and severity of the crisis situation
  • List stages of a crisis and some specific interventions most useful at each stage
  • Design individual and group interventions and use tools to help persons recognize their own crisis risks and to create relapse prevention plans
  • Discuss ways in which crises can be learning and growth-producing experiences for persons with CODs and how practitioners can facilitate this process
