Critical Incident Debriefing

Course Title: Critical Incident Debriefing

Safe & Trained have delivered a large number of Critical incident debrief management programmes. (CIDM) is an adaptive, short-term psychological helping-process that focuses solely on an immediate and identifiable problem. It can include pre-incident preparedness to acute crisis management to post-crisis follow-up. Its purpose is to enable businesses & your people to return to their daily routine quickly and with less likelihood of experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder.

CIDM is designed to help your people deal with their trauma one incident at a time, by allowing them to talk about the incident when it happens without judgment or criticism. The emphasis is always on keeping people safe and returning them quickly to more normal levels of functioning.

Critical incidents raise stress levels dramatically in a short period of time and after treatment a new normal is established. The purpose of the intervention process is to establish or set the new normal stress levels as low as possible in order to support your people.

Tess Group Compliance and Safety adhere to 7  Key Protocols:

  1. Assess the impact of the critical incident on support personnel and survivors
  2. Identify immediate issues surrounding problems involving safety and security
  3. Use defusing to allow for the ventilation of thoughts, emotions, and experiences associated with the event and provide validation of possible reactions
  4. Predict events and reactions to come in the aftermath of the event
  5. Conduct a “Systematic Review of the Critical Incident” with impacts emotionally, cognitively and physically on persons
  6. Bring closure to the incident, “anchor” or “ground” to persons and their community to initiate or start the rebuilding process (i.e. help identify possible positive experiences from the event)
  7. Debriefing assists in the re-entry process back into the community or workplace. Debriefing can be done in large or small groups or one-to-one depending on the situation. Debriefing is not a critique but a systematic review of the events leading to, during and after the crisis situation.
