Manage Traumatic Workplace Situations

If you or someone you know has been affected by the stress of a traumatic workplace event, you may request Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM), a comprehensive multi-component approach to crisis intervention.

CISM helps:

  • Identify and mitigate traumatic stress symptoms that could occur after involvement or exposure to a critical incident, such as:
    • Death or serious injury to UB community member
    • Active shooter or other large scale acts of violence
    • Physical or sexual assaults
    • Environmental disaster     
  • Reduce the duration and severity of traumatic stress arising from crisis situations
  • Prevent disabling psychological effects and regain adaptive work-life functioning
