Critical Incident Debriefing (CID) aims to reduce the likelihood of post-traumatic stress disorder and provides normalised results following an abnormal incident. During an incident of this nature, we can efficiently mobilise counselling, debriefing and support services onsite for the employee, family or the colleagues impacted by the incident.
A rapid Critical Incident Debriefing can:
- Start the recovery process by providing a framework for the affected parties to understand their experiences
- Educate the employee(s) in common responses to trauma, and provide advice about the process of recovery
- Provide trauma management strategies for implementation in the workplace to support involved or affected staff.
