About Sky Help

Although we are not offering any workshops at this time, we would be happy to offer assistance and guidance to anyone interested in starting similar services. 

Since 1998, we have provided 2, 3 and 4-day intensive educational and therapeutic workshops for Trauma Resilience and Compassion Fatigue. In addition to our signature workshops we offer peer support through our toll free number (1-877-SKY HELP), and referrals to individuals and family members suffering from or at risk for developing PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and Compassion Fatigue.

Sky Help workshops are a relaxed and expanded form of Critical Incident Stress Management and Debriefing (http://www.icisf.org) with added educational and experiential components. Workshops are held in a home-like atmosphere near the sea on Long Beach Island, NJ. Our participants share their experiences in a non-judgemental, supportive peer environment. Upon completion, participants are equipped with information and skills to work through their own stress reactions at home and are able to support others experiencing similar forms of stress.

Methods used in workshops include: take-home workbooks with educational materials and resources, experiential group and individual processing of events, films, optional individual consultations with a Trauma Specialist and optional massage therapy/bodywork.  Relaxation techniques, humor and unstructured leisure time all enhance the experience and bonding of each group.  At the end of each workshop participants are invited to share contact information for ongoing phone and website support, referrals, and peer driven activities.
