GRIN is a three-day course combining two ICISF CISM courses: Assisting Individuals in Crisis and Group Crisis Intervention.

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”. The Assisting Individuals in Crisis 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 Group Crisis Intervention course is designed to specifically teach crisis intervention and Emergency Mental Health skills such as demobilization, defusing, and CISD (Critical Incident Stress Debriefings). At the completion of this course, participants will be able to: define stress, CIS (Critical incident Stress), and STSD (Secondary Traumatic Stress Disorder); list the 10 basic interventions of CISM; and define and describe in detail the CISM group processes of demobilization, defusings, and debriefings.

Participants will receive certificates for both of these courses upon completion.

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.

The cost for this training is $175.
