Crisis Training Institute Programs

To learn more about our programs or to schedule a consultation, please call 412-328-6376.

Crisis Training Institute programs can be tailored to address the unique concerns of your specific group or work setting based upon an evaluation of your needs. Our trainers can come to your workplace to conduct training sessions or training can be arranged at an alternate site.

Upon request, we also provide consultation. Consultation can include environmental evaluations, critical incident stress management strategies, and development of crisis team-building, planning, and response procedures.

In the early 1990’s, UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital’s Office of Education and Regional Programming (now known as Education and Consultative Services of UPMC Western Psychiatric) established the Crisis Training Institute. The Crisis Training Institute assists organizations to ready themselves for crisis and disaster response by providing best practice education and training workshops on crisis prevention, intervention and postvention. Our programs have become leading examples of crisis, stress, and behavioral health emergency management.

The Crisis Training Institute provides a wide range of programs and consulting services in crisis prevention, intervention, and postvention, including stress management and the mental health components of disaster response. Our programs highlight a realistic, hands-on instructional approach. Our experts can travel to your workplace or an alternate site to conduct training sessions.
