Critical Incident Stress Management: Group Crisis Intervention
-      A range of measures to support individuals and groups who have experienced traumatic events and challenging situations.
-      A professionally recognised process for teams to share their experiences, vent emotions, learn about stress reactions and symptoms.
-      Enhancing natural resilience and promote psychological wellbeing.
Group Crisis Intervention is designed to present the core elements of a comprehensive, systematic and multi- component crisis intervention curriculum, the Group Crisis Intervention course will prepare participants to understand a wide range of crisis intervention services. Fundamentals of Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) will be outlined and participants will leave with the knowledge and tools required to provide several different types of group crisis interventions, including Rest, Information and Transition Services (RITS), defusing’s and the Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD). The need for appropriate follow-up services and referrals when necessary will also be discussed. 
The ideal way to train is to start by undertaking a course called ‘Assisting Individuals in Crisis‘ and then develop further through ‘Group Crisis Intervention’.  PSA is conducting 3 sets of courses in Glasgow so that you have a range of dates to choose from. Training is comprised of classroom learning and supervised skills practice. Course participants will receive a copy of the ICISFworkbook and ICISF/University of Maryland Certificate of Attendance as well as lunch and refreshments.  More details on CISM available at icisf.org.
This training has been successfully deployed by PSA in Healthcare, Education, Emergency Services, Aviation, Employee Assistance, Mental Health, Armed Forces and Charities.
