Defusing and crisis management debriefing are two of the key interventions in the critical incident stress management (CISM) program and are the first steps in the CISM intervention process. To successfully participate in a critical incident stress (CIS) team, learners must master these skills. This course examines the role of groups and dyads in CISM, communication skills and defusing, strategies to develop an effective support relationship, post-incident defusing, and post-incident do's and don'ts. By the end of the course, learners will have successfully completed a defusing exercise and have participated in the development of a crisis management debriefing.
