Crisis intervention is NOT psychotherapy, but rather a specialized acute emergency mental health intervention which required specialized training. As physical first aid is to surgery, crisis intervention is to psychotherapy. Most of the crisis intervention that is done is done individually, (one-to-one). This course is designed to teach participants the fundamentals of, and a specific protocol for, individual intervention. This is a 13 contact hour, two day class.
