We’re offering training in a variety of communities to help equip Canadians to offer hope in Christ to family members, friends, co-workers, etc. — whoever is experiencing a personal crisis and needs compassion and a listening ear. The training is also required training for those who feel called by God to serve as volunteer Rapid Response Team Chaplains, for deployment in Canada and/or abroad, to offer hope in Christ to victims of natural and or man-made disasters.
Crisis Intervention is NOT psychotherapy; rather, it is a specialized acute emergency mental health intervention that requires specialized training. As physical first aid is to surgery, crisis intervention is to psychotherapy. Thus, crisis intervention is sometimes called “emotional first aid”. This program is designed to teach participants the fundamentals of, and a specific protocol for, individual crisis intervention. This course is designed for anyone who desires to increase their knowledge of individual (one-on-one) crisis intervention techniques in the fields of Business & Industry, Crisis Intervention, Disaster Response, Education, Emergency Services, Employee Assistance, Healthcare, Homeland Security, Mental Health, Military, Spiritual Care, and Traumatic Stress.
The Billy Graham Rapid Response Team trains God’s people for grief ministry and deploys crisis-trained chaplains to provide emotional and spiritual care to those affected by man-made or natural disasters. Learn more about the Rapid Response Team’s critical ministry.
