As a new member of a law enforcement CISM team I attended a CISM training course with Instructor Fuzzy Lake from 11/18-11/20/2021. The course provides vital information for any CISM team getting off the ground and Fuzzy Lake does an amazing job at not only relying this information but also in a manner that this information can be easily processed. Fuzzy Lake allows to conversation to flow easy which produces a great learning atmosphere. Would recommend this course and Fuzzy Lake to a new CISM member or anyone looking to sharpen up their skills.

Fuzzy is a great instructor, very knowledgeable, & no nonsense kind of guy. The Group & Individual crisis management was one of the most beneficial classes I’ve taken in my peer / chaplaincy career. It is filled with relevant life experience stories, interactive thinking, & full of opportunities to practice the skills learned in the course. I high recommend this course if you are interested in chaplaincy, peer support, or have a heart for your fellow employees & would like to know how to help meet them where they are in their struggle

Fuzzy Lake is an excellent instructor who not only "talks the talk but walks the walk". He is a humble, competent and compassionate man of God.
I learned so much from his class that has helped my growth as a chaplain.

Fuzzy Lake is a wonderful and well-qualified professional teacher. His passion and personal experience in the field was evident in his training course. I would recommend his CISM Training class on Crisis Intervention to all professionals looking to expand their knowledge of Crisis Intervention. The three-day course is packed with a lot of valuable information, real life scenarios and role-play/rehearsal activities.

The class was excellent, Fuzzy was very organized and professional. Clearly he knew the content and did a great job of teaching and explaining it, along with sharing his own experience.

I took a CISM class April 7-9h in Myrtle Beach, SC. Fuzzy was a great instructor, prepared, made it interesting especially when he worked real life stories and experience into the instruction. The role playing was also very helpful, it put the instruction into real life, which is better than just verbal.
I am a licensed Chaplain and can see how what we learned over the three day course will not only help me to be a better Chaplain but also it can be used in my everyday life with family and friends. Thank you Fuzzy, I look forward to joining your team.

Fuzzy is an amazing instructor! All the course materials were presented in an easily discernible way. He taught the materials & showed us how to use it. Whatever learning style you like, he covers them all! The added tools I now have in my belt as a BG-RRT Chaplain have given me the necessary confidence & capability to help others walk through crisis.
I would recommend Lake Critical Incident Stress Management to anyone looking for impactful training for themselves & their teams to help and serve their communities, coworkers & families with valuable information and simple yet extremely effective processes.
Thank you for equipping me to better serve!

Excellent class, highly recommended!

Fuzzy,

I have significant experience as a trainer, college professor, course designer/developer and more. A tiny number of the many instructors I have worked with match your competence as a teacher.

Your history and experience play a huge part of that as you know. Your story telling abilities, delivery style, general competence and 'extreme', sincere attention to each member of the class was a true 'amazing' to me...and it all seemed so natural to you.

Fuzzy is a fantastic teacher for this class because he has had many years of first hand experience in dealing with people in crisis situations.  He is a strong leader and is great at leading a group of varied individuals.  His stories make the textbook come alive and gives the students a taste of real life scenarios.  Being from Hawaii, we had to attend class at 2:30am Hawaii time, but because his class was so interesting and engaging, we had no problem in staying awake and finishing the entire three day stretch.  I would highly recommend Fuzzy Lakes class to anyone who is interested in helping people in crisis.

I attended a Crisis Intervention class taught by Fuzzy Lake on April 29-May 1, 2021.  The class was informational, educational and heartfelt.  Even though we started each class at 2:30am (Hawaii time), we looked forward to each session.  We learned a lot and the class surely equipped us for assisting those in crisis.  The RITS, Defusing, and Debriefing sessions and Role Playing was as much fun as it was instrumental.  As stated in my evaluation, the instructor Fuzzy Lake “made the class”.  He kept us interested throughout the sessions and he made it pertinent to “real life” situations.  I highly recommend this class to anyone preparing for Crisis Intervention.

I highly recommend Fuzzy Lake for CISM training! I have worked with him, been trained by him and have been actively involved with him in doing CISM groups. He is an excellent trainer and does excellent CISM work!

My name is Jeff Rader and I have been involved with a law enforcement CISM team for approximately a decade now. I am the team leader for a central Indiana team and worked side by side with Fuzzy for several years. During this time it became apparent to me that Fuzzy was very well versed and trained in CISM.
