Critical Incident Stress Response
|A critical incident can be a serious accident, fatality or traumatic event. These can occur anywhere and at any time. Whether they occur at a work site or not, these types of events can have a profound impact on those who witness them, and on those who knew the victim(s).
These types of incidents typically heighten stress reactions and often impede the individual's ability to perform their work duties as they normally would. Having the opportunity to debrief what occurred decreases the negative impact these stress reactions can have on those affected.
Borealis Counselling Services staff are trained in the spectrum of interventions for responding to and managing a Critical Incident. These interventions include consultation with management about how to proceed immediately following such an incident, providing on-site one-on-one grief counseling for affected individuals, as well as facilitating a defusing and/or debriefing (0-8 hours and 24-48 hours post incident, respectively).
Borealis Counselling Services also provides follow-up services such as on-going counselling and other necessary support for affected employees and family members as required or recommended.
