Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) is a brief, person-centered therapy for resolving symptoms of traumatic stress (acute and chronic) including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). TIR facilitators around the world engage with diverse populations including crime victims, domestic violence survivors, children, natural disaster survivors, accident victims, and combat veterans.

These practitioners include psychologists, social workers, ministers, domestic violence counsellors, and lay practitioners who work in various settings such as hospital clinics, private practices, shelters, victim services agencies, and disaster sites.

Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM): a comprehensive, integrated, multi-component crisis intervention system The core crisis intervention components of the CISM system are:

  • Pre-incident preparation
  • Demobilization
  • Crisis Management Briefing (CMB)
  • Defusing
  • Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD)

    The central premise of this book is that CISM practitioners can benefit in many ways from training as TIR practitioners.

    “Each modality can be enhanced by the skills and training that the other provides. CISM without TIR is missing the opportunities to complete the process. TIR without CISM training is missing the structure for working with and understanding the bigger process.”
    —Gerry Bock, MA, RCC (Vancouver, BC)
