One of the most controversial topics in the field of crisis intervention is the efficacy of Critical Incident Stress Debriefing.

  • Does CISD hurt the recovery and processing of traumatic incidents for front-line workers?
  • What is the best strategy to address the potential risks of being part of a crisis situation?
