NEW CLIENT SCHEDULING
Thank you for considering Avenues for Change as you explore options to support your mental health.
Our clinicians are experiencing higher than normal caseloads and are not currently taking referrals. However, if you or your family member would like to be put on our waiting list, you are welcome to contact the office. Drug/Alcohol evaluations and intakes are being regularly scheduled.
We apologize for this inconvenience and are honored to serve in Great Bend, Larned, Manhattan, and the surrounding communities.
CRITICAL INCIDENT STRESS DEBRIEFING (CISD) TRAINING
MARCH 9-11, 2022
An Event Hosted by Avenues for Change in Partnership with the Great Bend Police Department
CISD Training is intended to assist with both Individuals in Crisis and Group Crisis Intervention. Crisis Intervention is NOT psychotherapy; rather, it is a specialized acute emergency mental health intervention which requires specialized training. As physical first aid is to surgery, crisis intervention is to psychotherapy.
This course is designed for anyone in the fields of Business and Industry Crisis Intervention, Disaster Response, Education, Emergency Services, Employee Assistance, Healthcare, Homeland Security, Mental Health, Military, Spiritual Care, and Traumatic Stress.
The event brochure includes details about training content, the trainer, schedule, and more.
(groups of 3 or more from same agency receive $100 off every 4th registration)
Payment can be mailed to Avenues for Change or made via PayPal.me/a4change. Invoices can be emailed if requested.
