Critical incident debriefing

Critical incidents are unexpected or unplanned events that occur within a workplace or affect individual employees or the workplace as a whole.

These include:

  • the death of an employee, client or customer
  • assaults or threats
  • workplace accidents
  • unforeseen workforce changes
  • extreme climatic events such as bushfires and floods.

A timely response to critical incidents is vital to minimise negative outcomes associated with critical incidents, including stress, anxiety, absenteeism and other symptoms of post-traumatic stress.

We can provide a range of support options in the week following a critical incident, either on-site at your workplace or through our centres located across metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria.


Support options

We can offer:

  • Group Debriefing (workplace counselling, post incident debrief and review, group trauma debriefing) – a structured group discussion facilitated by an experienced and qualified counsellor with expertise in critical incidents.
  • Individual Counselling – immediate (within one week) and follow-up counselling to support affected employees.
  • Management Training – training to support leadership teams to prepare for and respond quickly and appropriately after a critical incident.
