eCPR: connect, (em)power, revitalize
12 CEUs – MABPCB
Emotional CPR (eCPR) is an educational program designed to teach people to assist others through an emotional crisis by three simple steps:
C = Connecting
P = emPowering, and
R = Revitalizing.
The Connecting process of eCPR involves deepening listening skills, practicing presence, and creating a sense of safety for the person experiencing a crisis. The emPowering process helps people better understand how to feel empowered themselves as well as to assist others to feel more hopeful and engaged in life. In the Revitalizating process, people re-engage in relationships with their loved ones or their support system, and they resume or begin routines that support health and wellness which reinforces the person’s sense of mastery and accomplishment, further energizing the healing process.
eCPR is based on the principles found to be shared by a number of support approaches: trauma-informed care, counseling after disasters, peer support to avoid continuing emotional despair, emotional intelligence, suicide prevention, and cultural attunement. It was developed with input from a diverse cadre of recognized leaders from across the U.S., who themselves have learned how to recover and grow from emotional crises. They have wisdom by the grace of first- hand experience.
The eCPR Approach
A Holistic, Hopeful, and Empowering Approach
Through eCPR we learn that people in emotional crisis express their feelings as a form of communication to be understood and our approach assumes that people are doing their best to cope with an experience beyond their current ability to effectively manage. The sooner we begin support for a person in emotional crisis, the more likely it is that the person will make a full, speedy return to a life in the community. In essence, eCPR helps people learn the skills required to act as a bridge between a person in distress and the community at large, assuring that important roles are not lost and the person in crisis reintegrates quickly back into the daily routine of everyday life. Our approach is holistic, heart-to-heart, and embedded in a hopeful belief that by using our interior experience we can help another person recover from an emotion.

“Her calm and ever-present drumming techniques helped center my mind, slow my breathing to match her own rhythm and reach that state of mind which made it possible for me to explore the deepest questions I didn’t even realize I had to answer. What an irreplaceable experience!” – Katya, speaking of project: liberation faculty member, Rev. Christin C. Green
“Focusing with Marki over the past 2 years has changed my life. I have noticed a huge improvement in my ability to ride the ups and downs
of life. I am regularly surprised and delighted at how quickly revealing images, sensations and clarity come to the surface during the sessions. Marki is an amazing guide and support. She is gifted at holding sacred space in a gentle yet powerful way. I have immense gratitude and appreciation for Marki’s work as a focusing guide and coach. “
