Hello to all,
I just had the opportunity to take a two day class on Critical Incident Stress
Management. If you are not familiar with this subject, PLEASE take the time to
familiarize yourself with it. There is a plethora of information on the
internet and many books written on the subject. It helps explain what is going
on in the body while we are experiencing the stress and that it is all 100%
normal. The instructor also had many stories about people who had not worked
through previous critical incident stress only to have it come back on them at
the most inopportune times.
Reading through this material is definitely worth your time and I urge everyone
who is asked to attend a critical incident stress defusing and/or debriefing
after a traumatic incident to please do so. Not only for yourself but also for
your fellow teammates that experienced the trauma.
Thank you for your time,
