Crisis Awareness Training

Wednesday, October 21, 2020 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

The Ohio School Safety Center (OSSC) and the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OMHAS) are proud to offer crisis awareness training to Ohio's school safety community. This training it not specific to public safety or first responders and is information that is beneficial to everyone. Crisis Awareness Training provides participants possible examples of physical and emotional signs that a co-worker, family member, friend or the employee themselves may be in crisis after a traumatic event. This can be brought about by an incident at work, in their personal life or as the result of the cumulative effects of exposure to traumatic situations. Everyone’s reactions to trauma are unique to that person, but this course gives some possible signs and symptoms as well as techniques to help someone who may benefit from assistance. Issues discussed include; physical, cognitive and emotional responses to trauma, alcohol / drug issues, techniques and strategies for working through the effects of a traumatic incident. Often, we want to help another person but don’t know what to say or how to best assist them. This course provides the opportunity to ask questions about trauma and stress as well as being given resources and concepts to help not only someone else, but the employee themselves. This will be a 3 hour instructor led course with an opportunity for Q&A at the end. The course content and instruction is provided by the OMHAS First Responder Liaison.
