C.I.S.M. - Critical Incident Stress Management Training
Time & Location
About the Training
This course is designed to teach peer support crisis intervention skills to public safety officers and individuals working in a group environment. It is a specialized acute emergency mental health intervention course used throughout the United States by public safety agencies, businesses and schools. This training requires specialized instruction developed and supported by the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation (ICISF). As physical first aid is to surgery, crisis intervention is to psychotherapy. This three-day seminar will provide the participant with the knowledge, skills and techniques necessary to provide this “psychological first aid” to co-workers and others affected by critical incidents, post-traumatic stress as well as the long-term effects of cumulative stress.
The core curriculum is designed to teach participants the fundamentals of, and a specific protocol for, individual crisis intervention and several of the internationally accepted group crisis interventions. Participants will be able to critically identify the multicomponent approach to crisis intervention strategies in the aftermath of a critical incident. Peer support team planning will also be discussed.
This training session is taught by ICISF (International Critical Incident Stress Foundation) certified instructors. Trainees will receive two certificates for successful completion of this training. Continuing education credits are also available from ICISF.
