15th World Congress: Crisis, Stress, and Human Resilience

Crisis Intervention enthusiasts from around the world will gather at the 15th World Congress to educate and train for the unthinkable:
  • We analyze, discuss, and grow from sharing lessons learned and research.
  • We learn, improve, and polish our skills and knowledge.
  • We make personal connections, renew commitments, and build teams.
Then, we return to our communities, agencies, and jobs with fresh ideas, reinvigorated.  We do the selfless work of caring and helping others and assisting our communities.
Are you in?

Message from Rick Barton, Chief Executive Officer

Our core mission remains essentially the same over the past three decades.  Our methods of delivering that mission over most of the past fifteen years has changed very little; using the same delivery methods and with only sporadic adjustments. The rationale proved strong: Why change what works well?

Meanwhile the world around us changed. Communication methods became faster, more global, with less paper, and more self-service systems that use modern technology.  People used social media to share knowledge and opinions.  Courses of study could be found “online”. Websites and search engines became essential tools.

At ICISF, our small number of employees reach around the globe thanks to faculty, instructors, members and partners who carry the mission wherever people face the trauma of critical incidents.

If you have visited with us in the past, you will notice that our website home page features a new design and layout, so please take a few minutes to explore.  The objective of the website change is to better welcome new visitors, offer better access to information, and support in the world of Critical Incident Stress Management.
