Emotional CPR (eCPR) is an educational program of the National Empowerment Center (NEC) and is designed to teach people to assist others through an emotional crisis by three simple steps: C=Connecting, P=emPowering, and R=Revitalizing.
The Connecting process of eCPR involves deepening listening skills, practicing presence, and creating a sense of safety for the person experiencing a crisis. The emPowering process helps people better understand how to feel empowered themselves as well as to assist others to feel more hopeful and engaged in life. In the Revitalizating process, people re-engage in relationships with their loved ones or their support system, and they resume or begin routines that support health and wellness which reinforces the person's sens of mastery and accomplishment, further energizing the healing process.
eCPR is based on the principles found to be shared by a number of support approaches: trauma-informed care, counseling after disasters, peer support to avoid continuing emotional despair, emotional intelligence, suicide prevention, and cultural attunement. It was developed with input from a diverse cadre of recognized leaders from across the U.S., who themselves have learned how to recover and grow from emotional crisis.
This two-day certification training is all inclusive and provides training, hands-on practice and coaching, eCPR workbook, and evaluation for certification.
