Critical Incident Stress Debriefings (CISD) & Crisis Intervention
Critical Incident Stress Debriefing
Prevention of post-traumatic symptoms is a significant component of our philosophy. The opportunity to talk with a trained therapist who can connect with a the emotional significance of a recent event can bring great relief. First responders are regularly exposed to the unthinkable, bank employees face robberies, businesses occasionally lose a co-worker, and school violence occurs with some regularity. A trained therapist who can validate the significance of what happened, normalize response to that event, facilitate group cohesion in the midst of a crisis, and provide follow up can bring comfort and decrease distress. Each team member at ITTC is trained in and has provided crisis intervention services at the community level.
