Green Clock Hours: 1.00

The goal of this course is to provide addiction professionals, behavioral health counseling professionals, marriage and family therapy professionals, psychology professionals, and social work professionals in a health and human services setting with current strategies and recommendations for family crisis planning.

A crisis is an unstable, emotionally stressful event that involves an abrupt or traumatic change during which health and safety are compromised. Having a safety crisis plan in place before a crisis occurs can mean the difference between a manageable event and a traumatic or dangerous one. This course will help you to recognize antecedents to crises so that you can respond more quickly, create a plan to help decrease the number and severity of dangerous incidents, and help families use community resources and self-sufficiency to cope with family emergencies. You will learn techniques that can help you work with families as partners in developing a family crisis plan. You will also learn the structure and components of a family crisis plan, as well as when and how to revise these plans. A number of strategies and techniques will be discussed that you can use to maximize collaboration with family members in both the process of creating and implementing a crisis plan.
