The Trauma-Informed Crisis Intervention training is a one-day (for those who attended the Professional Resiliency Training previously) or two-day (for those that did not attend) skills-building workshop. Drawn from evidence-based practices indigenous to the International Association of Trauma Professionals’ Certified Trauma Professional course (www.traumapro.net) , this workshop will provide hands-on skills for the participants to rapidly offer skilled triage and intervention to civilians and inmates in crisis. Participants will learn the fundamentals and advanced skills for de-escalating aggressive behavior and how to maintain maximal functioning and control during these times
- Develop an understanding of the principles of trauma-informed care and be able to articulate their application to law enforcement and correctional situations.
- Understand the powerful negative effects that chronic arousal has upon law enforcement and correctional officers and how this arousal can trigger aggressive behavior among those they serve.
- Develop skills for lessening and ongoing regulation of this arousal as a means for maximizing cognitive and motor functioning in all situations. Additionally, understand how this important skill has a powerful calming effect upon anxious others, especially in crisis situations.
- Learn a 5-step protocol for helping those who are not violent or law breaking during crisis situations to maximize their recovery and minimize the negative effects after the crisis.
