Tahoe SAFE Alliance announced the schedule for its eight-week fall Crisis Intervention Training, running Sept. 9 through Nov. 4.
The organization encourages men and women to volunteer and help end the incidence and trauma of intimate partner/domestic violence, sexual violence and child abuse in North Lake Tahoe and Truckee.
Tahoe SAFE Alliance’s Crisis Intervention Training is an intensive 68-hour course being held on a combination of Tuesday and Thursdays evenings, 6-9 p.m. and three Saturdays, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Trainees must attend all sessions, to be conducted at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Non-Profit Center in Incline Village.
Topics covered include: the basics of domestic violence and sexual assault, cultural diversity, substance abuse, legal issues of domestic violence and sexual abuse, acquaintance rape, child abuse, suicide, peer counseling and crisis intervention techniques.
Graduates are provided with a certificate of completion and are recognized as able to work in Crisis Intervention and Peer Counseling. Successful completion of the course will allow volunteers to contribute in any of the Tahoe SAFE Alliance client-based programs including the 24-Hour Community Help Line, the Children’s Program, the Violence Prevention Program, and the Safehouse Program.
