CCRT Debriefing Services
CCRT debriefing program includes post-incident support, including education and diffusion of emotional reactions and structured debriefing the event. Debriefings are based on the Mitchell Method of CISD (Critical Incident Stress Debriefing) but adjusted to fit the needs of those seeking support. The form of CISD utilized should depend upon how early the intervention is activated, the nature of the incident and who the audience of the debriefing will be. The use of one format does not preclude the use of others for the same critical incident.
