OAL 561 - Clinical First Responder II


1 credit
The CFR II course is part two of a program that trains outdoor professionals and adventure therapist to competently assist in the care and treatment of clients with psychological, emotional, and behavioral issues in the backcountry environment. Mental health crises are inherent to wilderness treatment due to the nature of clients served and the novelty of the environment. The training will increase the students’ understanding of psychological issues and give them the tools to respond effectively to crises. In particular CFR II focuses on practicing crisis counseling and de-escalation techniques; identifying addiction and detoxification issues; discussing instructor judgement as a risk management tool, examining how to stay physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy in the demanding role of wilderness field staff, discussing stages of change, practicing adventure facilitation; analyzing substance abuse and addiction; and practicing motivational interviewing. (CFR I and II are two stand-alone courses and can be
taken out of sequence.)
Graded Pass/No Pass only.
