This series is in partnership with Welcome Home of Chattanooga and The Chattery. The program is free of charge. Classes take place every Thursday in February, March and April. February is in partnership with National Health Care for the Homeless Council.
Extreme poverty, chronic illness, substance abuse, mental illness, loss, grief – all cause extreme stress and tension both in the individual and in the community. The result can often be escalated emotional responses, conflict, and even violence. In this training we will discuss the basics of conflict resolution and de-escalation – principles that can be applied in our everyday relationships but also as we serve those who are living in crisis. One NASW CEU is available and a certificate of attendance will be provided.
