Description

ALERT - The health and safety of our learners is of the utmost importance to us. We are closely monitoring the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. After much consideration and with circumstances changing so rapidly, Charlotte AHEC has cancelled this training. We are fully committed to ensuring that our attendees and staff remain safe and well.

Violence in our society has unfortunately become common in our daily lives. Large scale mass casualty incidents present significant challenges in both the immediate response to and in the aftermath of these occurrences as communities recover. Human service professionals play multiple roles throughout these processes. It is essential that the human service professional recognize and is prepared to respond to complex issues encountered in practice as well as internally as he or she works within these charged traumatic environments.
