Critical Incident Stress Response

Critical Incident Stress Response

Provided when severely stressful events occur. Our trained facilitators respond on-site within 48 to 72 hours following the critical incident. Research has shown this to be the window of time where people get the optimal clinical benefit from the service. Sometimes as soon as 24 hours after the event a CIR can be helpful. The goal 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 includes:

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