Emotional CPR (eCPR) is a public health educational program that teaches people to support others through an emotional crisis by Connecting (C), empowering (P), and Revitalizing (R). In this highly interactive co-learning setting participants will practice some of the essential processes of eCPR, such as but not limited to listening with our eyes, ears, and heart to feel the person's presence (C), accepting the uncertainty of not knowing what is best, but open to collaborative exploration (P), and experiencing and exploring our vital center - our truth, our authentic self and our genuine voice (R). The feedback we receive from many cultures and countries is that practice of eCPR is a deeply transformative experience. For more informaton, visit: http://www.emotional-cpr.org/
Said one eCPR training attendee, "It was one of the most profound experiences I have ever had. This is the kind of work I want to be doing to build community. It is a transformative process."
Emotional crisis is universal. It can happen to anyone at any time. Emotional CPR (eCPR) is a public health education program that teaches people to assist others through an emotional crisis. Just as Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) has saved many lives, emotional CPR also saves lives and prevents unnecessary use of costly human service resources.
Laypeople certified in eCPR can help others recover from severe emotional distress, trauma, and/or disasters, thus preventing unnecessary use of costly hospital emergency rooms, public safety resources, and mental health services. eCPR helps to demystify emotional crises so community members know what to do when they encounter someone in emotional crisis. This public health education program is easily adaptable to any crisis situation and can be used with culturally diverse populations. When people feel that they have a meaningful and valued place in the community, they are less likely to “act out” and hurt themselves or others. Thus, eCPR helps build stronger and more resilient communities.
