The CISM: Group Crisis Intervention training program presents the core elements of a comprehensive, systematic and multi-component crisis intervention curriculum. This two-day course prepares participants to understand a wide range of crisis intervention services including pre and post incident crisis education, crisis intervention for individuals, demobilisations and crisis management briefings after large scale traumatic incidents, and small group defusings and debriefings. The need for appropriate follow-up services and referrals when necessary is also described. This is a skills based course that prepares individuals to provide these interventions.

- Trauma Resiliency Techniques
In providing clinical services counsellors, mental health professionals, nurses and medical staff may encounter particularly distressing accounts and situations that may be traumatic. Newer staff with less experience may be potentially at risk of traumatisation. More experienced staff may still have the same potential or be at risk of burnout. Resiliency techniques may assist to mitigate this risk for staff. This one day workshop focuses on understanding the nature of trauma, personal resiliency factors, the role of defusing and debriefing, stress and burnout dynamics, critical factors such as client relationships, common issues for counsellors and strategies for building resiliency and safety.
- Critical Incident Stress Response
Violent clients, attacks on staff, accidents and employee deaths are all part of the workplace. Sudden and unexpected events can occur at any stage. Frontline staff and managers need to be prepared to deal with these situations and the stress created for other staff. This one day workshop provides an understanding of what types of Critical Incidents can occur, why they impact and the effects upon people in the workplace. Participants will be given information and practical strategies for assisting others in the workplace affected by critical incidents.

This one day workshop will assist you to effectively manage critical incidents and how to develop a basic Critical Incident Response plan and procedures.
- Dealing With Death Notification
Are you equipped to deliver one of the hardest messages of all? To inform someone that their loved one has been killed at work? Most people believe that it is the Police that deliver this news, only to find that this is a myth. When deaths occur in the workplace, either through natural causes such as a heart attack or human-made causes such as car accidents, machinery mishaps, or structural collapses, it remains the responsibility of the organisation’s leaders to deliver this news. Dealing with death notifications requires skill and sensitivity. This half day workshop will provide practical solutions and guidance in how to deliver this difficult news.
- Critical Incident Management for Counsellors
You are alerted that there has been a critical incident, someone in a workplace has either died or been seriously injured. Counsellors, chaplains, psychologists and social workers are often asked to respond to these events. This two day program provides you with the theoretical underpinnings of critical incidents, critical incident stress and trauma, models of identifying those likely to be affected, response interventions, the difference between defusing and debriefing, ethical concerns, and practical intervention strategies.

These staff may be challenged by having to cope with the stress that may arise when handling such calls. Dealing with people under conditions of high stress is an art. It is not a skill that can be taken for granted.
