Getting back on track.
Critical incident stress management (CISM) is an adaptive, short-term psychological helping-process that focuses on an immediate and identifiable problem soon after is occurs. It can include pre-incident preparedness to acute crisis management to post-crisis follow-up. Its purpose is to enable people to return to their daily routine more quickly and provide psychological movement towards healing.
Examples of events, which could benefit from CISM:
- Line of duty deaths
- Suicide of a colleague
- Serious work related injury
- Multi-casualty / disaster / terrorism incidents
- Events with a high degree of threat to the personnel
- Significant events involving children
- Events in which the victim is known to employees
- Events with excessive media interest
- Events that are prolonged and end with a negative outcome
- Any significantly powerful, overwhelming distressing event
CISM can be provided on the jobsite or in our offices (groups up to 8).
