They Fostered a Great Environment of Openness
The CISM team came to our office after the death of a coworker’s husband. They arrived the same day of the incident and helped people express their feelings about what had happened and offered strategies for supporting ourselves and each other. They fostered a great environment of openness, inclusion and frank conversation. I think people felt better after having this opportunity and didn’t have to feel alone or like they had to hold their feelings inside and not hash them out. I believe everybody felt better equipped to continue dealing with the tragedy while also having better methods to offer assistance to others in need. I would recommend a visit from the CISM team to any group of colleagues dealing with a difficult situation like we had.
