CISM Practicum

Many people complete the foundational ICISF courses – “Assisting Individuals in Crisis” and “Group Crisis Intervention” either in the two-day each or three-day combined “Assisting Individuals in Crisis and Group Crisis Intervention” (GRIN) course presentations. All persons who provide crisis intervention under the umbrella of ICISF CISM must have completed these foundational courses and benefit from extended praxis, evaluation, and reflection. One of the greatest challenges for most of these trained persons is the lack of supervised practice of the skills and techniques learned in the foundational courses. Completing the “Advanced Assisting Individuals in Crisis” and the “Advanced Group Crisis Intervention” courses could also be helpful. However, without regular practice and field experience, most trained team members do not integrate the principles and apply them effectively. This course is designed to allow the praxis, evaluation, and reflection that is necessary for constant learning and improvement of skills. Participants will actively practice Crisis Management Briefings (CMB), Defusings, and Critical Incident Stress Debriefings (CISD) under supervision of peers and the instructor using various scenarios of critical events.
