APAC Webinar: Crisis Intervention Part II: Practical Strategies for Crisis Planning and Placement Stability
The journey for foster and adopted children, their caregivers, and the supportive professionals can seem like a runaway train at times. This journey is often filled with heart-warming connection and heart-wrenching pain (often at the same time) and this ambiguity and volatility can often create crisis for all parties involved. How each party understands and relates to moments of crisis is the number 1 factor in how well we get through it gracefully with the least amount of "collateral damage." This 2-part webinar series will take a closer look at crisis so we can perhaps not only better navigate it but also prevent unnecessary crisis. NOTE: Although the January and February webinars flow together in a logical sequence in two parts, they are stand-alone trainings and part one is not required to view part two. This session will review some of the foundations discussed in Part 1 but will also provide more practical planning strategies to promote overall stability for youth and families.
1. Participants will learn to identify risk factors, signs and symptoms of crisis and levels of crisis development
2. Participants will learn communication, decision-making and intervention strategies to safely de-escalate children and adolescents experiencing behavioral crises.
3. Participants will learn protective factors as well as postvention strategies to prevent future crisis
