I have been trained by K-LOVE Crisis Response Team as a first responder within my community during times of crisis or disaster. I am specifically trained in individual and group crisis intervention and am available to support local law enforcement, hospitals, and other social services agencies in times of crisis.
Critical Incident Stress Management
From the K-LOVE website:
"Critical Incident Stress Management, or CISM, is an intervention protocol developed specifically for dealing with traumatic events. It is a formal, highly structured and professionally recognized process for helping those involved in a critical incident to share their experiences, vent emotions, learn about stress reactions and symptoms and given referral for further help if required. First developed for use with military combat veterans and then civilian first responders (police, fire, ambulance, emergency workers and disaster rescuers), it has now been adapted and used virtually everywhere there is a need to address traumatic impact in people’s lives."
