Behavioral First Responder Certification

Have you ever worked with someone going through a tough time and you weren't sure how to best support them?

That's why we created the

Behavioral First Responder.

We have.

The Behavioral First Responder course is designed for instructors, administrators, and counselors of all varieties that want to understand common behavioral issues and useful responses within the experiential education context. Our course will teach you overarching theories, models, and techniques adapted from the fields of social work, counseling, and psychology to help you understand why a student is demonstrating a particular behavior and some useful techniques that will help the student through their difficult moment.
