These SPR skills include: Problem Solving, Helpful Thinking, Building Healthy Social Connections, Positive Activity Scheduling and Managing Reactions.

    Our directive is to help communities of fire survivors identify their most pressing current needs and concerns and teach and support them as they develop skills to address those needs.
