 The Group Crisis Intervention Course is a 2-day program that is designed for those who have little or no previous CISM training, or are seeking a refresher. On completion of this training, students will be able to participate as a junior member of an experienced CISM team in delivering group interventions. The course will also cover skills to effectively intervene in a crisis for an individual. International Critical Stress Foundation certificates will be issued to those successfully completing the program. The course also attracts 1.4 Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) issued by the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

Delivered by Trina Noseworthy, Instructor for SD Solutions, Trina has worked in Emergency Services Dispatch for over 23 years, serving alongside of Police, Fire and EMS responders. She began as a Peer on the Calgary Fire Department Team in 1999, and subsequently organized and coordinated the Public Safety Communications CISM team for the Tri Services model of dispatch for the City of Calgary from 2006 – 2014. She has led numerous group and individual crisis interventions in that role and has been called upon to support other agencies, including response to the Pine Lake Tornado, the City of Calgary floods and organizing Crisis Management Briefings for other city departments.

Trina’s skills and experience are enhanced by additional continuing education in the field of CISM, which includes ICISF certification in Families and CISM – developing a Comprehensive Program and Comprehensive Crisis Preparation and Response for the Workplace. She has a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Psychology and Law from Carleton University and is also a Canadian Risk Manager (CRA).
