    CRITICAL INCIDENT STRESS INTERVENTION & SUPPORT

CrISIS™ – AN OVERVIEW

Critical Incident Stress Intervention & Support

Critical Incident Stress Intervention & Support (CrISIS™) is a psycho-social, systematic and integrative system for supporting those who have been adversely affected or overwhelmed following a critical incident.

It is applied by our facilitators, providing a coherent and evidence-based system of assisting people and enhancing resilience.

Developed in the aftermath of the London terror attacks of 2017 and the Grenfell Tower disaster, CrISIS™ represents an evolutionary development in resolving psychological trauma through social support following a critical incident.

CrISIS™ provides a robust and proven system with which to manage high-risk situations and critical incidents as well as more day-to-day yet unexpected incidents.

We recognise more than most the potential impact of a critical incident upon an employees and how that may affect wellbeing, effectiveness and of course, safety.

CrISIS™ is designed to enhance employees’ natural resilience, and provide specialist support to minimise impacts of traumatic stress – fostering resilience and optimising performance in overwhelming circumstances.

24 HOUR DEPLOYMENT

Our experienced CrISIS facilitators can be deployed to any location in Europe within 24 to 48 hours for on-site Decompression and CrISIS Briefings.

More extensive 1-1 Traumatic Incident Reduction interventions can also be provided if required for those who have been more severely affected by their experience.

    CrISIS™ Decompression

    A short interactive process conducted shortly after a critical incident. It is phased, structured conversation, designed to facilitate communication, and optimise the exchange of contextual and factual information amongst a group of people who share one or more homogenous factor(s) in relation to the critical incident. Facilitating the transference from a heightened state of arousal to inactivation, Decompressions also provide an opportunity to evaluate stress and peritraumatic reactions.

  • 24-72 Hours

    CrISIS™ Briefing

    A longer, more detailed and more directive interactive support process, conducted with a group of people who share at least one homogenous factor and experienced roughly the same level of exposure to a critical incident. A phased & structured discussion designed to maximise informational exchange, cathartic ventilation of emotional charge and optimise integration of emotionally charged data, it is ordinarily applied 24-72 hours’ post-incident, sometimes 5 -10 days later, or longer after major, more protracted critical incidents (3-4 weeks).

    A 1:1 system of support of psycho-social support which enables the processing of issues of psychological/emotional concern or distress.
