CCP Typical Timeline Description
The CCP Typical Timeline is divided into four color-coded sections, yellow, orange, red, and gray, that represent the four phases of a CCP typical lifespan: ISP, ISP Extension, RSP, and Closeout. Important dates and trainings have been called out throughout the timeline.
- Core Content Training - This is the basic training of the CCP and provides crisis counselors with critical information and skills. It usually takes place in the early stages of program implementation and service delivery.
- Transition to RSP Training - This training provides a review of key concepts and skills, with an emphasis on how RSP needs differ from those in the immediate disaster. This training usually takes place as soon as formal RSP grant award funding has been granted.
- RSP Midprogram Training - This training addresses issues of staff morale and stress management. It is usually held three to six months into the RSP.
- Disaster Anniversary Training - This training focuses on expected anniversary reactions and intervention strategies. The training is usually held several weeks before the disaster anniversary date.
- RSP Phasedown Training - This training includes addresses issues including staff stress management, future planning, and leaving a legacy. The training usually takes place six to eight weeks prior to the program's scheduled phasedown.
