Event Details


Presented by Lauren Spiro

eCPR is a public health educational program designed to teach people to assist others through an emotional crisis by three simple processes: Connecting, Empowering and Revitalizing.

The Connecting process involves deepening listening skills including listening with our eyes, ears, and heart to open up communication, feel the person’s presence and create a sense of safety for the person experiencing a crisis. The emPowering process involves supporting people to feel their passion, purpose and power and to accept the uncertainty of not knowing what is best, but open to collaborative exploration. In the Revitalization process, we explore our vital center – our truth and our genuine voice and our authentic self which leads to a renewed sense of meaning, purpose and belonging.

This workshop is appropriate for the diverse general public, people who themselves have experienced emotional crisis, broad-based human service providers, family members, administrators, EMT and law enforcement personnel and others; no previous training is necessary.

eCPR has been endorsed by CARF International, the largest behavioral health accreditation entity in the world, the International Association of Chiefs of Police and others.
