You can register for Sharing Hope in Crisis training or the CISM course here:

The CISM (Critical Incident and Stress Management) course is about Crisis Intervention. It is not psychotherapy; rather, it is a specialised acute emergency mental health intervention which requires specialised training. As physical first aid is to surgery, crisis intervention is to psychotherapy. Thus, crisis intervention is sometimes called “emotional first aid”. Designed to present the core elements of a comprehensive, systematic and multi-component crisis intervention curriculum, this course will prepare participants to understand a wide range of crisis intervention services for both the individual and for groups. Fundamentals of CISM will be outlined and participants will leave with the knowledge and tools to provide several group crisis interventions, specifically demobilisations, defusing’s and the Critical Incident Stress Debriefing. The need for appropriate follow-up services and referrals when necessary will also be discussed and we will include a Biblical framework throughout our 3 days together. The cost of this 3-day residential course will be in the order of £200 per person and by registering interest we will notify you when the course details are confirmed.
