Event Description:
Experiential Crisis Intervention Training: What's Going on & How to Help When There is Racial & Community Trauma  

Virtual Training 

Our communities are struggling with the impact of one crisis after another. As a healer how do you carry on? How do you show-up with humility and wisdom? How do you make an impact?  

Trainer: Kristee Haggins, PhD

October 19,  2022  |  1:00 PM – 4:00 PM (PDT)

This half a day crisis intervention training introduces participants to crisis intervention skills with an emphasis on providing effective racial and community-centered responses. Rather than traditional trauma-informed strategies, this training aims to focus on racial and community trauma in marginalized communities adding a self-exploration as a means to apply this lens to clinical practice. The training is engaging and interactive, and integrates scenarios, videoclips and music, as well as small group discussion to promote the transfer of learning to clinical practice. 

Join Dr. Kristee Haggins who is is a community healer, African centered psychologist, professor and consultant with expertise in Black racial stress and trauma. She served as the Associate Director of Training and Community Outreach at Student Health and Counseling Services at UC Davis for nearly 20 years, where she was also an Adjunct Professor in African and African American Studies. She is a previous member of the Health Equity Team at CIBHS where she worked for 5 years. Currently, Dr. Haggins is an Associate Professor in the College of Psychology at California Northstate University. She is also a founding member and the Executive Director of Safe Black Space, a developing non-profit focused on helping Black people heal and thrive in the face of anti-Blackness and racism. In addition, Dr. Haggins is on the Board of Directors for the California Black Health Network and she is the President of the Greater Sacramento Chapter of the Association of Black Psychologists.

This three hour experiential workshop will  include vignettes and breakout rooms to create a learning environment that lends itself to immediate take-aways for your practice and an invitation for self-exploration and understanding of your role as a healer in your community.
