CENTRAL KANSAS DEBRIEFING AND PEER SUPPORT
EQUIPPING AND STRENGTHENING FIRST RESPONDERS, THEIR FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES.
Central Kansas Debriefing has been supporting Central Kansas First Responders and Safety Personnel since the 1980’s. The team has changed, the tools modernized, but the heart remains the same. The team is coordinated depending upon requesting entity; however, generally consists of Mental Health, Chaplain, and First Responders/Safety Personnel/Medically trained members.
WHAT IS CRISIS INTERVENTION?
Crisis Intervention is NOT psychotherapy. Rather, it is a specialized acute emergency mental health intervention which requires specialized training. As physical first aid is to surgery, crisis intervention is to psychotherapy. Thus, crisis intervention is sometimes called “emotional first aid."
