'Just in Time' Web-based Training

"Just in Time" training provides a quick overview of the CCP and the skills needed to provide behavioral health services after a disaster.

This Web-based training is designed to provide crisis counselors, supervisors, and team leaders with a basic understanding of the Crisis Counseling Assistance and Training Program (CCP) model and its services. This training is used when in-person Core Content Training is not yet available and staff must prepare to provide CCP services as fast as possible.

Staff who complete the "Just in Time" Web-based training are still required to complete the full Core Content Training once it is available. A federal project officer must approve the CCP grantee’s request to use the Web-based training before it is offered. The Web-based training is divided into four sections:

  • Just in Time Section 1 provides an overview of the CCP and introduces the information and skills needed to provide behavioral health services after a disaster. This training is about 20 minutes.
  • Just in Time Section 2 describes the CCP model and the range of services provided. This training is about 30 minutes.
  • Just in Time Section 3 provides a deeper understanding of the types of emotional distress reactions that are common after a disaster. This training is about 15 minutes.
  • Just in Time Section 4 describes the “how to” of each step of crisis counseling. It also examines ethical considerations, cultural awareness, safety, and self-care as they apply to the CCP. This training is about 30 minutes.
