Crisis Cycle Mapping (RFL)
Mar

6:00 PM18:00

Crisis Cycle Mapping (RFL)

The training will cover what a crisis cycle is including triggers, the escalation phase, peak crisis phase, and post crisis depression. It will also cover de-escalation techniques, how to implement them, and how to reintegrate a youth after post crisis depression. The goal will be that resource parents develop the skill to create crisis cycle maps for any child that comes into their care. These maps are an excellent visual guide as to how to reduce crisis, and recognize and respond to them appropriately in each phase. The maps can also be a great resource when a child transfers families or has a respite care period. Social Workers are encouraged to attend to develop the mapping skill and assist families with future map development.
