Critical Incident Stress Management • Critical Incident - Any event with sufficient impact to produce significant emotional reactions now or later. It is generally considered extremely unusual in the range of ordinary human experiences. Examples of critical incidents include the following: • Crew members death in line of duty • Children’s death or serious injury • Multiple fatalities or seriously injured survivors • Suicide, successful or attempted • Natural disasters • Class A or B mishaps involving death or permanent injury and otherwise high emotional impact • Use of deadly force • Grotesque injuries • Acts of terrorism • Acts of violence resulting in injury or death • Observing any traumatic event
Critical Incident Stress Management • Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD) - A group meeting intended to: • Acknowledge both potential and realized traumatic reactions to the event or incident • Stabilize and mitigate the impact of acute symptoms/signs of distress following the exposure • Assist individuals to evaluate their own responses in terms of the impact on their current occupational functioning and the possible need for ongoing referral/treatment • Encourage the mitigating effects of peer group support and interaction in the workplace • Facilitate participants’ use of social, emotional, and psychological resources available to them
