CRITICAL INCIDENT STRESS MANAGAGEMENT SERVICES
As a manager or supervisor, you play an important role in providing support to employees
following a critical incident. Employees will need emotional support and understanding
while you focus on maintaining a stable work environment. Critical Incident Stress
Management (CISM) is a group meeting organized for employees affected by the
critical or traumatic event typically 24 to 72 hours after the event. The main
purpose of the meeting is to reduce the probability that employees exposed to the
event may experience long-term emotional and/or psychological consequences.
The CISM also offers support, normalizes commonly experienced reactions, and
provides skills to cope and manage the physical, behavioral or psychological
reactions related to the traumatic event. Please contact your local HR contact to
request a CISM for your team.
