Certified Emotional CPR Training Available Before the NYAPRS Conference!
A two-day Emotional CPR (eCPR) training will be offered by the National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery (NCMHR) before the New York Association for Psychiatric Rehabilitation (NYAPRS) Conference on September 8-9, 2013 in Kerhonkson, NY.
eCPR is based on the principles found to be shared by a number of support approaches: trauma-informed care, counseling after disasters, peer support to avoid continuing emotional despair, emotional intelligence, suicide prevention, and cultural attunement. It was developed with input from a diverse cadre of recognized leaders from across the U.S., who themselves have learned how to recover and grow from emotional crises. They have wisdom by the grace of first- hand experience
Through a combination of presentation, interactive discussions, and dynamic role-plays, trainees will learn about and practice the key concepts involved in effectively supporting a person through an emotional crisis and into healing.
eCPR training is appropriate for the general public, peer and other service providers, family members, administrators, and others; no previous training is necessary.
"Early bird" registration rate available. See details and registration information at http://emotional-cpr-newyork.whindo.com
CARF International recommends eCPR as “a holistic, empowering approach to assisting persons served to cope with emotional crisis.” (CARF International’s 2013 Behavioral Healthcare Standards Manual)
eCPR is recommended by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) as a way to enrich Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) curricula. (International Association of Chiefs of Police, Building Safer Communities: Improving Police Response to Persons with Mental Illness.
Said one eCPR training attendee, "It was one of the most profound experiences I have ever had. This is the kind of work I want to be doing to build community. It is a transformative process." Click here for other testimonials about eCPR training.
