Aléas training: Principles of Intervention in Mental Health*

December 8, 2023

1:00 p.m. EST

NB: This training follows on from ”Basic Concepts in Mental Health’.’ It is highly recommended to have completed the first course before taking this one.

This training develops the interpersonal skills needed to manage a situation involving a person with a mental health problem or disorder. A person who intervenes with tact, calm and empathy, and who employs intervention techniques, contributes to the successful management of a crisis. The training promotes the integration of learning through an experiential pedagogical approach.

Asynchronous training (approx. 45 min) is offered in the form of a self-directed module which will be available November 29 to December 12 2023.

The two-hour synchronous session led by Aléas will take place December 8 at 1:00 p.m. EST.
