EAP – Trauma & Crisis Intervention

Trauma & Crisis Intervention

Trauma occurs when the individual’s normal coping mechanisms fail to respond in the event of a crisis. In the workplace, home or community, this may include the death of colleague or family member, devoice or abuse, or an accident (either in the workplace or outside). Following a crisis, the individual may exhibit symptoms that are dysfunctional such as becoming a danger. TCHD responds to crises or traumatic events in the workplace on two levels:

  1. Organisational
    Crisis Response Team and Crisis Intervention
    In the unexpected event of a traumatic occurrence, TCHD’s crisis response team will immediately on-site conduct a needs assessment and provide psychological first aid to all members through debriefing sessions. From these assessments, the identification of those who immediately need support will be ascertained and managed. Our organization is committed to providing this specialist service in coordination with the management or family team such that the impact on the affected welfare is minimized.
  2. Individual and Family
    Specialization Treatment – Trauma Treatment for Employees and their dependants
    Employees and their dependants face many severe traumatic events in their everyday lives. Some of these traumatic events can be community violence, domestic violence, physical and sexual abuse. These traumatic events, in most cases, go unrecognized and untreated, which can result in rippling negative life events both at home and in the workplace. We are committed to providing trauma-informed specialized treatment for employees’ and their dependants using the latest trauma informed treatment – Trauma System Therapy (TST).
