Crisis Intervention Training Offered On Campus Of Southern Adventist University

Wednesday, October 9, 2019

Southern Adventist University’s School of Education and Psychology will offer crisis intervention training led by guest presenter Sam D. Bernard, PhD, CISM, with certification provided by the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation.

The sessions over three consecutive Sundays, Nov. 3, 10 and 17 from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., and are open to anyone seeking to prepare for a crisis and learn how to help—healthcare workers, counselors, media members, law enforcement, educators, spiritual care professionals, and others involved in disaster response. 

“We live in a world where natural and man-made disasters occur with frequency,” said Liane de Souza, PhD, associate professor in the School of Education and Psychology. “It is the inner desire to reach out and help others that makes us human, and we can be prepared.” 

The training will lead to two separate certifications from ICISF: Group Crisis Intervention and Individuals Crisis Intervention and Peer Support. Completion will require attendance at all three sessions in Southern’s Summerour Hall. Continuing education credit is available as well.  

The deadline to register is Oct. 14. Space is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
