In crisis situations, individuals, families and communities may experience profound reactions that can seriously affect their ability to function optimally. If a crisis is dealt with effectively, stress, and the possibility of chronic and/or future symptoms, may be significantly reduced.
The Certificate in Advanced Crisis Intervention and Counselling focuses on the immediate support and intervention individuals often require in crisis situations. The program provides participants with skills to assist those who are affected by a variety of crises including loss, violence, abuse, crime, challenges with one's mental health and traumatic events, with a focus on applicable theories, approaches and strategies. The program is best suited to persons working or volunteering in a setting where they are helping people in crisis. As such, this program will be of tremendous benefit to social services workers, nurses, counsellors, crisis workers, paramedics, police officers, firefighters, chaplains, funeral directors, front-line workers and others working in related areas.
The Advanced Crisis Intervention and Counselling certificate program consists of six compulsory courses offered in-class in the evening. Flexibility of study is provided in that learners may complete the certificate in one or two years or simply take, upon acceptance to the program, the course(s) that best meet their current learning needs.
If more convenient for your agency or organization, Humber is pleased to deliver this program on-site if there are 20 or more who would like to take courses. A group information session can be arranged with a program representative to answer any questions you may have.
Student Testimonial – Advanced Crisis Intervention and Counselling
“My experience at Humber College is irreplaceable. By taking a continuing education program, I was able to be a full-time mom while working toward my career. Humber provided me with both the practical hands-on experience as well as the academic theories needed in my career. I started my dream career two weeks after my program ended and I owe it all to Humber. My employer was so impressed with the specific detail in the Humber program that I was able to bring incredible experience to my career.”
