Skills for Psychological Recovery (SPR) Training: An extension of Psychological First Aid

Monday, July 29 & Tuesday, July 30, 2019,  8:30 AM – 4:30 PM

Providing disaster-recovery care is very different than on-going therapeutic care. Attend this evidence-based training to learn how to provide the care our wildfire survivors need. 

Skills for Psychological Recovery (SPR) is an intervention that aims to help survivors gain skills to manage distress and cope with post-disaster stress and adversity. It utilizes simplified skills-building components from evidence-based mental health treatment that have been found helpful in a variety of post-trauma situations. This SPR training will train practitioners to assist moderately-distressed fire survivors in effectively using these skills. These SPR skills include: Problem Solving, Helpful Thinking, Building Healthy Social Connections, Positive Activity Scheduling and Managing Reactions.
