Program Overview

The Crisis Intervention & Trauma Supports certificate program is designed to give students insight into how individuals, families and communities may experience a crisis, and the practical skills to mitigate the way crisis and trauma influence our capacity to function optimally in times of distress and beyond. If a crisis and/or trauma is addressed with compassion, effective strategies and understanding, the possibility of chronic and/or future symptoms may be significantly reduced.

What you will learn

The certificate focuses on the immediate support and intervention individuals often require in crisis situations across the lifespan. The program provides participants with practical skills to assist those who are exposed to trauma and crisis experiences including loss, violence, abuse, crime, challenges with one's mental health, and communal or familial traumatic events. The program presents you with best practices, theoretical models and a trauma-informed practice, along with opportunity to practice the skills and strategies presented to build your support toolkit. The program will also explore the systemic and cultural barriers to supports and services along with how to advocate for adequate care universally. The program is best suited to persons working or volunteering in settings where they are helping people in crisis, or with exposure to trauma. As such, this program will be of tremendous benefit to social workers, social services workers, nurses, counsellors, crisis workers, paramedics, police, firefighters, chaplains, funeral directors, child and youth workers, community agencies and others working in related areas.
