Emotional crisis response training is one of the most important, yet often underrated, elements in the internal training regime of many organizations and businesses. Every one of your team members and co-workers is likely to experience a crisis while on the job and in your space. By providing training to your team, you’re not only empowering them to help others, but you’re also empowering a healthy culture amongst your own team.

If you are part of a church, non-profit organization, business, or ministry, you can benefit from training your staff and/or employees in emotional crisis response. Being ready to provide emotional crisis response is especially critical for teams working directly with individuals in customer relations, pastoral care, counseling, or any other direct communication outlet.

Our variety of training opportunities, conferences, and hosted events allow you to choose what is best for your team or organization. Options range from two hours of crash-course training to a weekend-long conference or event. Each event covers the same material, but in various depths and with varying amounts of practice and practical application. Learn more about each of our in-person training opportunities below.

Organization & Team Training

Our most popular and most robust training is our Organization & Team Crisis Response Training. This in-person training is comprised of the CARES Training modules plus custom structures, tools, and methods for organizations and teams. Shelly works with your team to develop your own crisis response plan, team structures, communication methods, and training regiment. You’ll walk away from this training with everything you need to train others, build emotional crisis response teams, and effectively help people in crisis.

This training is recommended for church, ministries, and organizations who want to offer services to their own employees, community, city, or other external places of impact. If you are serious about wanting to apply the CARES training to impact others, contact us to learn more about Organization and Team Crisis Response Training.
