Each one of us has our own version of a narrative we recall when we tell a story. When a critical incident occurs, it happens in seconds. How do we process and understand that incident, and how can it affect us, now, and for the rest of our lives? The answer may not be as easy as we think but, there are answers.
We offer services that can assist you in understanding how we process and interpret our environment. Remember, nobody walks away from a crisis or critical incident untouched by it. What we feel is a normal reaction to an abnormal event.
