The following five training modules comprise the standard trainings required by the CCP. Per official CCP Guidance, these five trainings, developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS), should be delivered by instructors experienced in the CCP and trained to deliver CCP-required trainings. The names of instructors should be included in the ISP and RSP applications, and approved by CMHS. Additional training provided by the State should be based on specific disaster needs.
- Core Content Training [MS PowerPoint 21490kb]–The basic training of the CCP that provides crisis counselors with critical information and skills. While this typically is done in the first few weeks of the ISP, it is expected that mechanisms for ongoing training are in place to allow all new crisis counselors to have Core Content Training prior to working independently within the program.
- CCP Trainer’s Guide: Core Content Training [PDF 51.06mb]–This trainer's guide contains a suggested schedule and learning activities for delivering the required CCP Core Content Training.
- CCP Participant Workbook: Core Content Training [PDF 5.51mb]–This participant workbook provides supplemental information for the Core Content Training and prompts CCP staff to make notes on the details of the disaster.
- Core Content Just In Time Web Based Training–This Web Based version of the Core Content Training has been developed for crisis counselors, supervisors, and team leaders, in order to provide an understanding of the model of the CCP and its services. This CCP Core Content Just In Time Web Based Training is not meant to replace the full length CCP Core Content Training and existing CCP grantees must seek approval from their Federal Project Officers prior to its use. This training is meant to prepare staff to begin providing services to their communities as soon as possible following a disaster, when a full Core Content Training may not be possible. Staff will have the opportunity to be trained more comprehensively throughout the program. Our goal with this version is to assist staff in having a solid sense of the program goals and how to implement services that are most needed in the early timing of the program. This training is comprised of four sections:
- Transition to RSP Training [MS PowerPoint 10650kb]–A training that provides a review of key concepts and crisis counseling skills, with an emphasis on issues to be anticipated in the longer term RSP; in other words, how RSP needs may differ or evolve from those encountered in the more immediate disaster aftermath.
Midprogram Training [MS PowerPoint 11720kb]–A training usually held 3-6 months into the
RSP, but its timing varies depending on the length of the ISP. It addresses
issues of staff morale and stress management related to the disillusionment
phase of disaster. The training focuses on continuing outreach and service
provision under difficult circumstances. It includes problem solving for
specific CCP issues encountered. It begins to address the subject of eventual
- Disaster Anniversary Training [MS PowerPoint 7447kb]–A training held several weeks before the first
anniversary of the disaster event. It focuses on expected anniversary reactions
and intervention strategies.
- RSP Phasedown Training [MS PowerPoint 5971kb]–A training that usually takes place 68 weeks prior to the program's scheduled phasedown. Program phasedown issues include managing staff stress, future planning, assisting the program and its staff to document the event, planning to leave a legacy for the community, and dealing with referral and continued-services issues via community partnerships.
