This basic course in Crisis Intervention presents an underlying philosophy that thorough

such that clients’ input and understanding of their own crisis plan is invaluable. To that end,
clinical interventions presented are client-centered and reflect the practice of various current
paradigms: Motivational Interviewing, Illness Management and Recovery, DBT, and Harm
Reduction. The section on Community Interventions emphasizes connecting clients with various
community resources and evaluating client needs based on their strengths and on least restrictive
alternatives. The expected outcomes for this training are that participants would have an
understanding of some intervention strategies they can use in crisis situations; that participants
would realize that supervision/consultation are always important in crisis situations; and that
participants have an understanding about the continuum of community interventions that are
possible to assist clients. Targeted participants are mental health workers, either in community or
