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 Carrie Schaepe, Staff Learning and Development Specialist.
