The primary purpose of a CISD(Critical Incident Stress Debriefing) Team, is to provide brief assistance to persons who have been subject to a Critical Stress Incident. A Critical Incident is an event that one experiences that produces trauma. While experiencing trauma, people can go through Fear, Panic, which have a wear and tear affect on the human body. In today’s culture, many people feel that expressing emotion or feelings is a sign of weakness and repress such feelings

Unfortunately, human beings who have the inability to express or feel emotions can have a detrimental effect on the mental well being of the person. People, who experience Critical Incident Stress, need to be debriefed. Failure to do so can result in mild to serious depression, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), and in many cases suicidal tendencies. Often, people do not realize why or what is causing their depression and many times seek no intervention or counseling. They feel there is no way out.

That is where the CISD Team comes in. The goal is to debrief those within 24-72hrs of the incident. The CISD Team wants to try to eliminate the physiological and psychological symptoms of trauma. The earlier the treatment, the greater chance of success. It is only the initial and first contact. Many people can be debriefed by a CISD Team member and not require any further counseling. Other people may need more qualified counseling. Remember CISD Debriefing Does Not Replace Professional Counseling or Psychiatric or Psychological Professional Services. You are a first responder to provide “mental first-aid” so to speak.

OCISF offers training to individuals, groups and agencies to certify them as Critical Incident Stress Debriefers. Our training can be facilitated at our various locations or can be delivered at your location.

Certified Debriefer Course is a 16 hour 2 day course which upon completion certifies the individual to be able to provide mental first aid to people in your organization that have been exposed to traumatic events.

A certificate and identification card indicating Certified Debriefer is provided to all successful candidates who pass the course. Specialized training and certification for Fire/Police/EMS and Military.
