Critical Incident Stress Management

When traumatic or severely stressful events occur, such as casualty accidents, workplace violence or death of employee or family members, Cascade provides Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM's) at the request of the employer. Our trained facilitators perform CISM's at designated locations within 48 to 72 hours following the critical incident.

The goal of our trauma response program is to minimize the damage created by the event and to speed the recovery process for both personnel and the organization.

Cascade's trauma response program includes:

• Supervisor / manager consultation
• Group debriefings at the worksite
• Individual counseling
• Educational written materials
• Follow–up
