Dear Colleague:

A car accident. A teen suicide. A house fire. A rape. School shootings. Natural disasters. The death of a child. Life is full of crisis situations and trauma events. As caregivers, we are called to be there in those moments, aptly trained to help during life’s most difficult situations.

In an effort to adequately respond to the needs of people across our nation when a crisis happens, the AACC is expanding her training programs and has developed the new Crisis Response and Trauma Care Series.

This five part series prepares leaders to come alongside those who are hurting and help properly and adequately respond when a crisis happens.

The good news is that God is always in our trouble, and He has no greater plan than to work through His people as a conduit to tell them that He will make a way.

If you have meaningful influence in the life of another individual, either as a member of the local police force, ambulance/EMT, nurse, doctor, school teacher, pastor, therapist, or any position that involves the opportunity to provide Godly counsel, wisdom and care in a time of crisis, you can now be recognized for your training.

The Best News: Each Course is Only $299!

(Regular Tuition $800 Per Course)

Join me and thousands of AACC members who will immediately pursue this important and prestigious specialized training leading to the Crisis Response credential. Our goal is to train tens of thousands of individuals all across the nation and around the world.

We love being a part of your life!

Sincerely,

Timothy E. Clinton, Ed.D., LPC, LMFT
President, AACC
