Critical Incident Stress Management (C.I.S.M)

  • A CISM intervention is a highly effective tool used by organizations to provide immediate psychological aid and to promote stability, health and growth in the aftermath of a workplace or community trauma.


  • CISM techniques help one to organize thoughts and feelings about events, facilitate normalization of reactions, reduce preoccupation with the events, enhance insight, promote exploration of meaning in the event and provide stress management education.


  • Research has shown that people who talk about a critical or traumatic incident generally eat better, sleep better, remain healthier, work better, and have less disruptions in their lives.
