In 1983 Dr Jeff Mitchell published his seminal paper When Disaster Strikes in a small medical journal in the USA. Within 10 years people in occupations at high-risk for stress and burnout recognised that premature retirement, ruined relationships and suicide were not inevitable. Out of his early descriptions of Critical Incident Stress Debriefing a range of techniques, tactics and ways-of-thinking emerged and grew into Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM). Here in Europe in 2022 we face psychological threats that the global CISM community worldwide had not prepared for. It is clear we will have to build and adapt what we know to work in our organisations to the communities in need. This conference will bring together the hearts and minds prepared to that.
