Event description

Description

Emotional CPR (eCPR) is a public health education program designed to teach people to assist others through an emotional crisis by three simple steps: Connecting, Empowering and Revitalizing

eCPR is based on the principles found to be shared by a number of support approaches: trauma-informed care, counselling after disasters, peer support, emotional intelligence, suicide prevention, and cultural attunement. It was developed with input from individuals who have learned how to recover and grow from emotional crises. They have the wisdom to inform this process by the grace of first-hand experience.

Connecting:

The Connecting process of eCPR is heart to heart and involves deepening listening skills, practising presence, and creating a sense of safety for the person experiencing a crisis.

Empowering:

With eCPR we do not strive to fix, judge, advise, or empower someone else, but rather by seeing others as strong and whole we create conditions that allow us to all be empowered.

Revitalizing:

In the Revitalizing process, people re-connect with their vital centre, feeling a sense of renewed energy, vitality, and/or sense of groundedness.

Participants will learn how to:

Reframe crisis as opportunity

Learn the importance of taking care of themselves so that they can support others

Facilitate the other person’s access to inner wisdom

Encourage the people they serve to take steps in the direction of their dreams

Inspire motivation and change

Help others tap into their courage and power

About Daniel Fisher:

Dr. Fisher obtained a PhD in biochemistry at U. of Wisconsin, to discover the so-called "chemical basis" of mental health conditions. Later Dan was diagnosed with "schizophrenia." He recovered, and to humanize the mental health system obtained an MD and completed psychiatric training. He worked for 25 years as a community psychiatrist at a mental health centre, founded the National Empowerment Center, was a member of the New Freedom Commission on Mental Health, and is Chair of the Board of the National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery. He is presently on the faculty of the University of Massachusetts Department of Psychiatry. He helped peers in Louisiana respond to Hurricane Katrina, and based on those experiences he helped develop Emotional CPR. He has published a book on recovery called "Heartbeats of Hope."

Dr Fisher will be ably supported to deliver this two-day certificate workshop by fellow eCPR trainers Helena Roennfeldt, Lorna Downes, Simone Allen and Neil Turton-Lane
