Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD)
When sudden disaster or loss occurs, an individual may not be prepared to face the difficult emotions that may follow. The purpose of Critical Incident Stress Debriefing is to provide a safe and structured opportunity for an individual to work through the severe emotions and experiences with a trained professional. Many people have benefited from being able to process through difficult emotions while they are still a fresh and painful memory. Many times aid agencies or companies will provide a time for debriefing after a severe trauma including:
- Natural disasters
- Terrorist attacks
- Robbery or hostage situation
- Serious car accidents
- School shootings or acts of extreme violence
- Sudden or violent death or loss of a loved one
The Antioch Group is available to assist companies and organizations, in both individual and group settings, to aid in overcoming emotional stress and trauma from an experience shared by many. Call us for more information on how we can provide CISD on a personal or corporate level.
