    Critical incident debriefings conducted by peer supporters is the best practice in place now for addressing the immediate reactions to traumatic stress for law enforcement officers. Critical incident debriefings and counseling sessions help officers to decompress after these experiences. Though officers might typically feel embarrassed or intimidated by the idea of seeking professional help for critical incident management, speaking with fellow officers is far easier. This training will give you the skills needed to help your fellow officers through difficult situations.

    Crisis Intervention is NOT psychotherapy, rather, it is a specialized acute emergency mental health intervention that requires specialized training. As physical first aid is to surgery, crisis intervention is to psychotherapy. Thus, crisis intervention is sometimes called "emotional first aid." This first part of the program is designed to teach participants the fundamentals of, and a specific protocol for, individual crisis intervention.
