Training Lists

If there is a behavioral health-based topic for which you would like training and do not see listed, please contact Debi Traeder 715-551-0966 or at traeders@charter.net. A program may be put together to for your needs or another speaker may be available with that expertise.

Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR)

Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying “Yes” to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor. QPR can be learned in our Gatekeeper course in as little as one hour. Gatekeepers can be anyone, but include parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters, and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide. Presentations can be tailored to specific audiences or the general public.

60-90 minutes.

QPR Train the Trainer

Learn how to be a QPR trainer and provide trainings in your own community.

8-hour training. $395 per person, includes training, materials and 3-year certification. (QPR Institute national program)

QPR-T

Risk Assessment and Management Program

This interactive, content rich, advanced training program is designed for mental health professionals responsible for the care and safety of consumers. As one of only a few registered best practice training programs in this area of clinical practice, the course covers suicide risk detection, assessment interviewing, documentation, and safety management planning and practices for patients across the age span and in any setting; outpatient, inpatient/residential, and emergency.

Full-day course, $150 per person to cover cost of materials and training

Mental Health First Aid

A training that teaches how to help people developing a mental illness or in a crisis. Learn the signs of addiction and mental illnesses; the impact of mental and substance use disorders, an action plan to assess the situation and help, and about the local resources available.

Full 8-hour course (can be taught in 2-4 hour sessions or 4-2hour sessions or full day).  Materials cost involved.

Mental Health First Aid for Youth

A training for those who work with children that teaches how to help those developing a mental illness or in a crisis. Learn the signs of addiction and mental illnesses; the impact of mental and substance use disorders, an action plan to assess the situation and help, and about the local resources available.

Full 8-hour course (can be taught in 2-4 hour sessions or 4-2hour sessions or full day). Materials cost involved.

ACEs – Adverse Childhood Experiences

Negative childhood experiences are related to major risk factors for the leading causes of illness and death and poor quality of life among adults. ACEs are common among all segments of the population. People who report any ACE are likely to experience adversity in other categories. Learn more about the study and some things we can do to not only help prevent ACEs, but to help those who have gone through such experiences and grow in positives ways.

Trauma-Informed Care

Psychological trauma is a pivotal force that shapes an individual’s mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Because trauma stems from violence, abuse, neglect, disaster, terrorism and war, nearly every family is impacted in some way. Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) provides a new perspective where those providing the support shift from asking “What is wrong with you?” to “What has happened to you?” This change reduces the blame and shame that some people experience when being labeled. It also builds an understanding of how the past impacts the present, which effectively makes the connections that progress toward healing and recovery. TIC takes a collaborative approach, where healing is led by the individual and supported by the service provider. Together, in a true partnership, people learn from each other. There’s greater respect, progress towards healing, and greater efficacy in services.

Four-hour to full day training available.
