Our Stepped Care Model

Our three-phased model offers early intervention and support to staff and managers immediately following the event, and continues for up to 30 days post-incident.

In consultation with you, our response is guided by one of our Senior Triage Psychologists. Available 24/7, 365 days a year, our services are delivered by our national Rapid Response Team of experienced psychologists.

Phase One

Psychological First Aid

Receive early psychological intervention and first aid immediately after a critical incident. Individuals identified as being at high risk of subsequent psychological injury, and currently presenting with an acute stress response, will continue to receive follow-up services from Assure.

Phase Two

Skills for Psychological Recovery

Over the next 7 days, individuals are assessed and monitored for emerging trauma symptoms. Our focus is on normalisation of distress, risk assessment and providing practical coping strategies.

Phase Three

Specialist Intervention

Our trauma specialists engage with staff exhibiting high symptoms, continue to evaluate any ongoing stress responses, provide practical coping strategies, and monitor emerging trauma symptoms.

Be prepared for critical incidents

Proactively prepare your staff and managers to handle critical incidents with our evidence-based training. We work to embed best-practice procedures and create effective psychological training for your leaders and staff.
