Presentation Description:

The Advanced CISM course is designed for participants who have already been trained in the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation's Group CISM. The Advanced course will teach enhanced skills of debriefing and defusing with special circumstances such as line of duty death, multiple incidents, and suicide of a colleague. Building on the skills taught in basic Group Crisis Intervention, this course offer participants training in enhanced group process and intervention provision to emergency response professions, various organizations, and communities worldwide. 

Designed to provide participants with the latest information on critical incident stress management techniques and post-trauma syndromes, the Advanced Group Crisis Intervention builds on the knowledge base which was obtained through the Group Crisis Intervention course and/or in publications. At the conclusion of this course, participants will have been exposed to specific, proven strategies to intervene with those suffering the ill effects of their exposure to trauma. Emphasis will be on advanced defusings and debriefings in complex situations.

This course is designed for EAP, human resources and public safety personnel, mental health professionals, chaplains, emergency medical services providers, firefighters, physicians, police officers, nurses, dispatchers, airline personnel and disaster workers who are already trained in the critical incident stress debriefing format. It will also be useful for those working extensively with traumatized victims for various walks of life.
