Meeting all your psychological trauma intervention needs with practical and useful training.  We are a premier provider of psychological trauma intervention training.


Chaplaincy Training

We offer training to chaplains of many fields. Completion of our training, as with any form of chaplain training, does not mean all chaplaincy groups will recognize your training, as training requirements vary between agencies.

CISM Training

We currently offers four courses from the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation, taught by certified instructors.  These courses include: Assisting Individuals in Crisis, Group Crisis Intervention, Grief Following Trauma and Advanced Group Crisis Intervention.
