Description: Training Description:
This training is intended to help IPCA begin supporting the Crisis Response work a number of health centers have indicated they want to become involved in, especially with the rising suicide rate in Idaho.
Chaplain Services Network will work in partnership with Idaho Primary Care Association to help IPCA Health Centers throughout Idaho become aware of the need for and path to developing crisis response teams in conjunction with county emergency management.
This training will help address how CHCs can engage in Crisis Response in their communities. This typically takes the form of three options this training will review:
1. Personnel join with an existing interdisciplinary County Crisis Response Team or Critical Incident Stress Management Team.
2. Join with other county entities to create a new County Crisis Response Team or Critical Incident Management Team.
3. Train personnel for crisis response work so that Clinics may become a community resource independent of (or parallel to) County Emergency Management.
Chaplain Services Network will also make themselves available to provide further crisis response training using the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation model in either live or online training modality under future agreements.

Learning Objectives:
The exploration and instruction above will be accomplished initially through a webinar format
made available to all IPCA Health Centers. Attendees will learn:
1. Major existing models of crisis intervention and/or Critical Incident Stress Management.
2. Role of county emergency management in community disaster and mass incidents.
3. Make up and function of Community Crisis Teams and Critical Incident Stress Management Teams (Peer Support)
4. Next steps in joining existing teams or developing new teams.
5. Training needed to function effectively in Crisis Response.
