CISM: Group Crisis Intervention training program is designed to present the core elements of a comprehensive, systematic and multi-component crisis intervention curriculum.
The two day course prepares participants to understand a wide range of crisis intervention services including pre and post incident crisis education, significant other support services, on-scene support services, crisis intervention for individuals, demobilizations after large scale traumatic incidents, small group defusing and the group intervention known as Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD).
The CISM: Group Crisis Intervention course specifically prepares participants to provide several of these intervention, specifically demobilizations, defusings and the CISD. The need for appropriate follow up services and referrals when necessary is also described. Considerable evidence gathered to date strongly supports the multi-component crisis intervention strategy, which is discussed in this course.
