Robert D. Macy’s Post Traumatic Stress Management Course

The Robert D. Macy Ph.D Trautatic Stress Management Course is the premier course for youth-serving individuals who want to learn more about providing crisis counseling after a suicide, homicide, accident, illness or larger impact disaster.   Attendees are taught the skills used to identify, stabilize and augment the psychological needs of youth who have been exposed to these events.  

The course consists of three full-day sessions .  My first two days of training (Post Traumatic Stress Management (PTSM) Training and Psychological First Aid with Ethnocultural, Gender and Developmental Specificity) were completed on October 6-7, 2011.  Early next year, the third training session (Advanced PTSM in Suicide Response Protocols) will take place on January 13, 2012.
