Workshop SIVA: Supporting Individuals Through Valued Attachments: Post-Intervention - In some cases, the follow-up to an unsafe incident can have as much impact on the well-being of both the individual and the caregiver as the incident itself. Post-intervention assessment and debriefing are vital to restoring safety, maintaining trust, and creating a healthy experience from which individuals and caregivers can grow.

Following an unsafe incident, a brief assessment of the safety needs of those directly and indirectly involved and a cursory assessment of the physical environment will provide caregivers with the initial information to manage the incident. SIVA will train caregivers on:
  • How to determine the appropriate timing for debriefing
  • Who should participate
  • Why advocates and mediators are necessary
  • When key events need to occur to restore trust and safety
