Many of the people we interact with are actively experiencing high levels of distress. This may be due to health conditions, poverty, family challenges, or other life stressors. The Creating Calm training series will focus on attendeesā€™ experiences and provide concrete tools for engaging with clients in distress.




Participants will:

  • Develop greater empathy and understanding related to distress
  • Gain insight into their own reactions to distressed people
  • Gain knowledge about the roots of particular kinds of distress
  • Learn tools for responding to distress that will improve engagement
  • Clarify risk and safety boundaries


This Creating Calm training will include the typical didactic material with an additional 2 sessions included in the series for the purpose of active dialogue and exploration of the unique needs and experiences of the HHRI staff.




Registrants who fully attend this series will receive a certificate of attendance via email within two weeks after the conclusion of the training.
