Additional Information

Critical Incident Stress Integration & Support (CRISIS) is a psychosocial system for helping people when they have experienced an overwhelming incident/event or situation. CrISIS provides an immediate and effective response to stress and trauma, helping to prevent a decline into poor mental health and supporting resilience.

The psychosocial nature of the CRISIS system means that ordinary people can be trained as Facilitators, in order to help their clients, people in their organisations, or social groups. In short, CRISIS Facilitator's provide a supportive and humane response to the emotional and psychological needs of a fellow human beings when something bad has happened to them.

Who delivers CRISIS?

CRISIS Facilitators are not clinically trained therapists or counsellors. Rather, they can be caring professionals, Peers and volunteers who have demonstrated trustworthiness, discretion and non-judgmental values, and are suitably placed to support colleagues and dependents in difficult times.

When can CRISIS be used?

CRISIS can be used by trained Facilitators upon first contact with someone in distress.

Is CRISIS a form of therapy?

No, CRISIS interventions are a form of psychosocial support and therefore considered to be non-clinical. The CrISIS Schema is simply an evidence-informed system for facilitating supportive and powerful conversations, to enhance natural recovery processes following a bad experiences.
