Critical Incident Response

Northern Focus Counselling understands the impact of trauma caused by accidents, death, illness, injury, suicide and violence on communities. We also recognize that there are different levels and approaches to responding to traumatic incidents.


Northern Focus Counselling provides trained Crisis Response facilitators for in community interventions that address critical incidents and implement safety/stabilization plans. Northern Focus Counselling can also provide support to those individuals affected by the critical incident who provided direct intervention on-site or are impacted because a colleague, family member or friend were involved in the incident.


Northern Focus counsellors also help organizations to establish internal resources to encourage peer-to-peer interventions and support. Northern Focus Counselling acknowledges that community members are often first responders to emergency incidents. This program also includes an initial assessment of employee abilities, followed by comprehensive peer helping training and self-care exercises.
