A rare opportunity to take part in training with Daniel Fisher from the National Empowerment Centre in the USA. Daniel will be delivering two-day certification training in Emotional CPR – an event not to be missed.   

Emotional CPR (eCPR) is an educational program of the USA’s National Empowerment Center (NEC).  eCPR is based on the principles found to be shared by a number of support approaches:

• trauma-informed care

• counselling after disasters

• peer support to avoid continuing emotional despair

• emotional intelligence

• suicide prevention

• cultural attunement

It was developed with input from a diverse cadre of recognised leaders from across the US, who themselves have learned how to recover and grow from emotional crisis. Emotional CPR is an approach that can support emergency service workers, mental health support teams, teachers and frontline staff right across the community sector who as part of their role may encounter people  experiencing emotional distress.  Check out the flyer
