Critical Incident Stress Management: Resiliency in the Aftermath of Critical Incidents

What is CISM (Critical Incident Stress Management), or CISR (Critical Incident Stress Response)? How can this elegantly structured simple process mitigate stress in both responders and citizens, pre, during and post critical incident? The goal of this course is to acknowledge, define and identify critical incident stress in oneself and in one’s co-workers in the response and helping professions. In addition, effective tools will be practiced to mitigate both individual stress and team stress in the aftermath of a critical incident. Tools for survival both immediately and in the aftermath will be explored. Group Critical Incident Stress intervention techniques will be defined and practiced.
