CISM (Critical Incident and Stress Management)

Assisting Individuals in Crisis

Course Description:

Crisis Intervention is NOT psychotherapy; rather, it is a specialised acute emergency mental health intervention which requires specialised training. As physical first aid is to surgery, crisis intervention is to psychotherapy. Thus, crisis intervention is sometimes called “emotional first aid”. This program is designed to teach participants the fundamentals of, and a specific protocol for, individual crisis intervention. This course is designed for anyone who desires to increase their knowledge of individual (one-on-one) crisis intervention techniques in the fields of Business & Industry, Crisis Intervention, Disaster Response, Education, Emergency Services, Employee Assistance, Healthcare, Mental Health, Military, Spiritual Care, and Traumatic Stress.
