Critical Incident Stress Management

Session Notes:
"We hear the word Stress bandied about in almost every arena: work stress, play stress, relationship stress, physical stress, life stress; but really, what is S T R E S S? Should it be avoided? Can it be tamed? Is it ever helpful? This presentation will offer a description of good stress and bad stress highlighting the effect on the human being physically and mentally. Ideas for identifying and using for benefit the energy that stress generates will be offered. The concept of Critical Incident Stress Management and Critical Incident Stress Defusing and Debriefing will be presented and discussed. These processes have been demonstrated to decrease the incidence of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and to manage the traumatic stress experienced particularly by members of the military and career first responders."
