Critical Incident Stress
April 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Critical incident stress refers to the range of physical and psychological symptoms that might be experienced by someone as a result of being involved in a traumatic critical incident. Critical incident stress is the body’s normal reaction to an abnormal event. Research shows that the employees who understand the effects of critical incident stress and have an outlet and method by which to process their reactions often recover faster, are more productive at work, and have less disruption in their home lives.
This webinar will cover:
- What is critical incident stress
- How people and workplaces can be affected by the trauma of a crisis
- The effects of short term and long term stress on the body and mind
- Strategies for how organizations can be supportive of employees in the aftermath of a crisis
