Introducing the CRISIS Schema:

Supporting You in Times of Distress "United in resilience, the CRISIS Schema extends a helping hand, illuminating a path of healing and empowerment for those navigating the storm of adversity." -Vilia Y Reynolds.

In the face of adversity, the CRISIS Schema stands tall, offering a hand of support and a glimmer of hope. We understand that healing is a journey unique to each individual, and our program embraces this truth. With empathy as our compass and integration as our guide, we empower those affected by critical incidents to find strength within themselves. Together, we navigate the storm, emerging more vital, resilient, and ready to face whatever comes next—the CRISIS Schema - where understanding meets transformation.

Are you or someone you know struggling to cope with the aftermath of a critical incident? Look no further than the CRISIS Schema - Critical Incident Stress Integration & Support Program. Our psychosocial, systematic, and integrative approach is designed to provide comprehensive support for those adversely affected or overwhelmed following a critical incident.

The CRISIS Schema offers several crucial benefits to individuals seeking assistance after a critical incident. First and foremost, our program immediately responds to distressed people, ensuring that help is available when needed. We believe in a person-centred approach, tailoring our support to meet each individual's unique needs and experiences.

One of the critical aspects of the CRISIS Schema is its focus on subjective reactions rather than the specific event type. We understand that different people may react differently to similar incidents, and we aim to provide support that acknowledges and addresses these subjective experiences.

Moreover, our program goes beyond the traditional definition of trauma, offering support for adverse life events that are not typically considered traumatic. Everyone's experiences and emotions are valid, regardless of diagnostic labels.

Using the CRISIS Schema, we enhance natural recovery processes and allow individuals to consider their ongoing support needs. Our model is functional, memorable, and repeatable, allowing individuals to integrate the support they receive into their daily lives.

It is important to note that the CRISIS Schema is not counselling or psychotherapy, nor is it a form of psychological debriefing. Our approach does not involve clinical diagnostics, judgment, labelling, or psychotherapeutic treatment. However, the effects of the CRISIS Schema may be considered therapeutic, promoting healing and positive growth.

A critical incident can trigger various reactions, including peritraumatic reactions, which can be complex and overwhelming. Our program supports integrative learning, helping individuals verify and make sense of their experiences, reducing the emotional charge associated with the incident. We also provide stabilisation support information for recovery and facilitate ongoing support to promote overall well-being.

We understand that confronting and handling challenging situations can be difficult, leading to disempowerment and vulnerability. The CRISIS Schema aims to restore stability, order, and control in a person's life through our holistic approach.

A critical incident can encompass various situations, including combat, road traffic collisions, terror attacks, disasters, sudden grief, violence, and more. Sub-critical incidents within a critical incident represent the most challenging aspects for individuals to confront and handle. Destabilisation caused by these sub-critical incidents can lead to confusion, fragmentation, and difficulties in coping.

Different people may have varying levels of resilience in other contexts, and this does not indicate personal weakness. The CRISIS Schema recognises the subjective nature of each individual's experience. It aims to provide support tailored to their unique needs.

We acknowledge that adverse outcomes following a critical incident can manifest in spiritual, emotional, cognitive, behavioural, and physical realms. Our program addresses these domains, providing guidance, resources, and support to help individuals navigate through their distress and work towards healing.
While many recover naturally with time and appropriate support, some may experience long-term adverse effects. Though diagnostic criteria like PTSD can be helpful for clinicians, we recognise that lasting effects can occur without meeting formal criteria.

If you or someone you know has been affected by a critical incident, contact us and discover how CRISIS Schema can provide comprehensive support for your recovery. We are here to assist you in your healing, resilience, and growth journey. Remember, you're not alone. With the CRISIS Schema, support is just a step away.
