In addition to client-specific training, we offer live and online training courses throughout the year. These courses are intended for people who are joining a CISM Team or peer team (EMS, fire department or hospital staff) OR for the enhancement of skills for those who are already members of a CISM or peer team.

Resilience Connect Sessions for Individuals and Small Groups of Frontline Healthcare Workers
We’re offering Resilience Connect Sessions for individuals or small groups of frontline health care workers (2-3 coworkers). Reduced fee of $70/hour through January 31, 2021. Resilience connection will focus on personalized, practical and brief research-supported steps that can be taken immediately during the work shift to mitigate emotional exhaustion and burnout and prevent the worsening of emotional distress for you and your coworkers. This is not psychotherapy, although resilience coaches (who are clinical social workers, critical care nurses and psychologists) can assist in finding workable psychotherapy resources, if requested.
Sessions can be scheduled by emailing Sue at sjohnston@cistressconsultants.
