Presentation Details: This Post Action Staff Support model is designed to accomplish three major objectives; the first is to actually "critique" the performance of the individuals and the team during the response to the event; the second is to evaluate the impact of the response on the team, and thirdly to remind them to take care of themselves as well. This workshop goes over a model which has been used by many CISM teams around the world. It is structured and simple to do every time your team is deployed. The structure of the session is Review; this is the critique section. As CISM teams we rarely have a mechanism for giving feedback to members of the team. Response: in this section we ask questions regarding how the event is affecting them at the moment and any adverse reactions they may be having; and Remind is the phase we ask for their plans to take care of themselves, and reflect on all the teaching we do on stress management, to review what they could be doing to take care of themselves.
