The CCP Typical Timeline is divided into four color-coded sections, yellow, orange, red, and gray, that represent the four phases of a CCP typical lifespan: Immediate Services Program (ISP), ISP Extension, Regular Services Program (RSP), and Closeout. Important dates and trainings have been called out throughout the timeline.
- Core Content Training - 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, mechanisms for ongoing training should be in place to allow new crisis counselors to have Core Content Training before working independently within the program.
- Transition to RSP Training - The Transition to RSP classroom training 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 immediate aftermath of a disaster. If the state did not receive an Immediate Services Program (ISP) grant, it must conduct a Core Content Training instead of the Transition to RSP Training.
- RSP Midprogram Training - The RSP Midprogram classroom training is usually held 3 to 4 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 Crisis Counseling Assistance and Training Program (CCP) issues and begins to address the subject of the eventual phasedown of the program.
- Disaster Anniversary Training - - The Disaster Anniversary classroom training is held several weeks before the first anniversary of the disaster event. It focuses on expected anniversary reactions and intervention strategies.
- RSP Phasedown Training - - The RSP Phasedown Training usually takes place 6 to 8 weeks before the scheduled phasedown of the program. Program phasedown issues include managing staff stress, planning for the future, helping program and its staff to document the event, planning to leave a legacy for the community, and dealing with referral and continued-services issues through community partnerships.
