Integrating Mental Health and Education Approaches into CVE is a 2.75-hour self-paced course designed for U.S.-based learners to provide community-focused, rigorously researched, and academically-informed instruction on Countering Violent Extremism (CVE). Targeted at the FEMA "awareness" training level, this FEMA-certified course is intended to provide instruction on how educators and mental health professionals may collaboratively address the multidimensional needs of individuals and communities contending with violent extremism. Learners will be able to identify areas of actual and potential synergy between the field of CVE and the fields of mental health and education.
Integrating Mental Health and Education Approaches into CVE was developed by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START), a Department of Homeland Security Center of Excellence and research center housed at the University of Maryland within the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences (BSOS). The development and delivery of this course is funded by the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency's National Training and Education Division. (Course Number: AWR-363-W)
After completing this training course, participants will be able to identify tiers of involvement for mental health and education professionals in community-based efforts to counter violent extremism and identify existing practices and lessons-learned from the fields of mental health and education that may have implications for CVE.
