Critical Incident Stress Management: New Free Learning Event

Until December 31, 2010 Critical Incident Stress Management is offered as a free Learning & Evaluation event at CPKN.

Funded by the Government of Canada's Sector Council Program, this course was developed in collaboration with York Regional Police. It instructs learners on how to recognize the effects of critical incident stress and provides techniques that can be applied to minimize the impact of an event. Furthermore, it explains the potential outcomes of critical incident stress, identifies potential administrative or personnel problems that may be created by critical incident stress reactions, and initiates a discussion of responses to critical incident stress.

This three hour introductory level course is offered as a free learning event to all Canadian law enforcement personnel. On completion, all participants are asked to complete a brief survey about their learning experience. This information is used to enhance future CPKN courses.
