ICISF Model Group: Crisis Intervention Video Examples

Training Video Links

These videos were purchased for use in ICISF training only.  Out of respect for the people who are in them (not professional actors) and created them, please don’t distribute the link to this page to anyone who was not on the course you attended.

These videos are not intended to be examples of “perfection”.  There are minor errors made and various elements that could be done differently.  Look at them as learning aids.  There may be things said or asked that you agree with and some that you do not.  Use them to improve your technique by imitating the language you see as helpful and avoiding any that you see as possibly problematic. 

The following two videos relate to a crash between a truck and a bus.  While there is nothing visually graphic, the descriptions of the situation and injuries may be upsetting to some people.  You are responsible for your self-care in this respect.  If you have any concern that you might have an adverse reaction to any of these videos, please do not watch them.

This video introduces the scenario of a murder in a workplace.

This is a simulated example of a Defusing provided to people in a workplace following a murder in their workplace.  This video is created by a team of volunteers and should not be taken as an example of how things should be done, but rather as an example of how things might be done.  Every situation is different and will require different language and tactics.

I agree that it is safe for me to watch videos about CISM interventions.
