Imagine holding a training where your volunteers and staff are enthused about the reading material! A training where the counseling and therapeutic communication skills are sinking in deeper and faster. The Trainees feel inspired to help others and are motivated to learn more about how to be more empathic and loving people in their day-to-day lives. All this resulting in the community receiving a better service.
The Crisis Intervention Manual is specifically designed with the intention to Open people’s Hearts and Minds.
