Crisis intervention programs are becoming the standard of care in occupational environments such as law enforcement, fire suppression, emergency medicine, and rescue services, which are known to be at high risk for psychological morbidity. An area which is frequently overlooked, however, is the application of crisis intervention programs to businesses and other corporate environments. This paper describes the development and application of crisis intervention principles into a comprehensive psychosocial crisis management for the corporate setting immediately following disasters and other traumatic events. The approach used reinforces emergency responders' capacities of synthesis and integration as a systemically-oriented acute preventive intervention.
