Education and Training

Red River College Polytechnic is committed to preventing sexual violence, harassment and discrimination and to creating a safe and inclusive working, learning and living environment for everyone.

We take a proactive approach to preventing all forms of sexual violence, harassment and discrimination through collective education and training opportunities for all students, staff and faculty members within the College community.

Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) – Employee Specific

Critical Incident Stress Management, or CISM, is an intervention protocol developed specifically for dealing with traumatic events. It is a formal, highly structured and professionally recognized process for helping those involved in a critical incident to share their experiences, vent emotions, learn about stress reactions and symptoms and be given referral for further help if required.

It is not psychotherapy.

It is a confidential, voluntary and educative process, sometimes called ‘psychological first aid’.

The College has a number of key staff members who are trained in Critical Incident Stress Management.

If you have any questions about CISM training, please contact the Organizational Development team.
