Substance Use and Mental Health Training Opportunities for Disaster Response Management (STORM)

Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) Resilience Training: Psychological Survival Skills for Before, During & After Crises

This two-day training helps participants be at their best during tough times and helps them prevent and recover from stress-related conditions- while optimizing mental well-being and performance under pressure. Each of us has a great need to learn the skills of resilience, and then teach these skills to others. Practical evidence-based and theory-driven resilience principles and skills will be explored. Coping skills taught in traditional clinical, elite training, and positive psychology settings will be explained—including cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, and emotional intelligence.

This course is designed particularly for emergency responders with a personal interest (such as military, police, firefighters, disaster workers) and those who support them, including mental health professionals, pastoral counselors/chaplains, leaders, trainers, peer counselors, and family members. The skills help us all, regardless of age or circumstance, cope with strains from everyday stressors to trauma. Course outcomes can include a greater sense of subjective well-being, improved occupational and social functioning, greater job retention, and the ability to help others become highly resilient.

This training provides 13 hours of Continuing Education Credits for the following licenses: Psychologist, Professional Counselor, Psychological Associate, Social Work, Marriage and Family Therapist, Chemical Dependency Counselor, Peer Specialist, Supported Employment Specialist and Certified Family Partner. Upon successful completion of the training, you must complete an evaluation to receive any applicable certificates.
