What is CISM?

 Critical Incidents are highly stressful situations.  Simply put, a critical incident is a traumatic event (or perceived life-threatening event) that has sufficient power to overwhelm an individual’s ability to cope. Normal physical and psychological responses occur which places considerable pressure upon that person.
