with 911 Training Institute 911TI

Throughout the U.S., our 9-1-1 Professionals and field responders are under enormous scrutiny in their management of calls involving folks with mental illness. Our highly acclaimed Emergency Mental Health Dispatching (EMHD) model – which is specific to 9- 1-1 - is the only one in the nation custom-designed from the ground up by a mental health professional exclusively to empower 9-1-1 professionals for optimal management of these crisis calls.

The Foundations of EMHD course will equip 9-1-1 Pros with the core EMHD knowledge they need to immediately boost their confidence and performance with at-risk callers and incorporate resilience training to optimize the 9-1-1Pro’s real-time response during high-stress calls.

Survive and Thrive Comprehensive Stress Resilience Training

Price not
available

with 911 Training Institute 911TI

Teaching basic stress management, while crucial for dispatchers, is inadequate preparation psychologically to manage the unique and very significant vicarious traumatization that dispatchers experience. They need special and more extensive knowledge of the nature and effects of trauma, thought and emotion management skills, and awareness of decision-making in facing or avoiding feelings of distress. Also, the complexity of psychological factors influencing relationships in the 911 center, due to the emotional intensity of the workplace, must be acknowledged, and more sophisticated relationship skills developed by dispatchers, supervisors, and managers to "thrive" together. This course developed by a clinical psychotherapist provides this information and equipment.

This course equips 9-1-1 telecommunicators with knowledge, insights, and skills to manage the personal distress produced by the secondary trauma they experience in handling crisis calls, and also to more effectively relate to their coworkers and protect their mental health. Additional emphasis will be also placed on managing "high voltage" team conflicts and advanced communication skills, along with a deeper dive into depression, sleep, self-medicating, and PTSD. This course is also for supervisors and managers who, in gaining this knowledge, can be more attuned to the needs of their employees and communicate more effectively with them.

The Power of Peer Support

Price not
available

with 911 Training Institute 911TI

The daily performance of our telecommunicators is significantly impacted by how they manage their stress in all domains of work and personal life. Peer support can improve functioning at work through confidential interpersonal support related to stressful events versus internalizing and accumulating this stress. The 2013 NENA Standard on Acute, Traumatic, and Chronic Stress requires all 911 centers to assure peer support for their employees as part of “Comprehensive Stress Management Programs”. This course introduces staff to the elements of peer support and the basics of delivering it.

This class will equip 911 Telecommunicators to offer lay support to peers without doing so in an official role within the PSAP. This course is for all 911 professionals who desire to be effective in offering emotional support to their peers.
