Overview

Traumatic Incident Reduction, or TIR for short, offers an opportunity for the members of a CISM team to deal with any accumulated emotional baggage that their involvement in crisis-intervention has created. Training in TIR adds another tool to the toolkit of crisis-intervention techniques and enables peer-support to ad-dress an extended range of crisis-reactions, even those that might justify a clinical diagnosis. If virtually all the emotional reactions of a colleague in crisis could be accommodated and addressed through CISM and TIR, then the difference to the individual, the CISM team and the community would be immense. In the words of John Durkin, “I look forward to the day that what practitioners of CISM and TIR already know is recognized in order for these approaches to be embraced and enjoyed more widely.”

Editorial Reviews

Lauri Coates
The book offers really wonderful and informative chapters on post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and resolving it; the basic methods of TIR and CISM; crime in the workplace; facilitating the use of TIR/CISM for practioners, and summaries of commonly used intervention techniques..

I think anyone in a position of interacting with persons who have undergone traumatic incidents can greatly benefit from this book.
Paige Lovitt
This book clearly defines CISM and TIR. It carefully explains which clients would benefit most from the treatment and which ones would not. Those that would not benefit include people that are psychotic or under the influence of drugs. It also offers the DSM criteria for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I found this book to be very informative and think that it should be read by persons in both the mental health field and those whose careers involve dealing with people in crisis events.
