PLUS Perth is offering an innovative training in Perth on June 26 & 27 for people to develop their skills to help another in a crisis. EmotionalCPR an accredited training will be led by Dr Dan Fisher, a psychiatrist who himself has recovered from a diagnosis of schizophrenia.
PLUS have worked over the last 5 years to bring emotionalCPR to Scotland. Perth is the first place in the UK to train people in it with participants travelling from all over Scotland to access it. Wales and England are now holding workshops this year.
Susan Scott PLUS Manager said;
We all experience emotional distress at some time in our lifetime, it’s what makes us human. This training teaches participants how to respond to someone in distress with real compassion and understanding, to be with and not try to fix. I was a psychiatric nurse for many years and this approach is leaps and bounds in front of what I was taught. I believe using the principles of emotionalcpr can make a huge difference to helping someone in a crisis.
The workshop will take place on Tuesday 26 and Wednesday 27 June in Perth.
