Connect with us. Being virtual gives us a great opportunity to enhance connections and community for all participants. Opportunity for engagement with ICISF Staff, presenters as well as other participants will be available in different forums throughout each day!

Expand your reach and open doors to new opportunities by attending the ICISF World Congress 16.


The ICISF World Congress is an amazing time to connect with others who are passionate about crisis intervention, crisis management, and helping peers in need. You will meet other professionals who are in a similar line of work as your own, as well as those who work in related roles. It can be a fantastic chance to build relationships within not just your industry, but your community as well. There may be others from your geographic area that you have yet to meet, but who also share your interest in ICISF and the CISM model.

We will be providing suggestions and guides for how YOU can personally be connected and network during World Congress 16.

CISM Coordinators/ICIRN

The ICIRN (International Critical Incident Responder Network) started as the CISM Coordinators Conferences in 1996 as an opportunity for team coordinators to gather informally to network, share knowledge and for mutual aid and support around day to day, common concerns CISM teams faced.  In 2006 it was renamed to expand the network beyond just coordinators and reflect a more international scope in response and issues.  ICIRN meets every two years alternating with World Congress.  Our conferences are scheduled regionally, last one hosted by the Gallatin County CISM Team in Bozeman, Montana in 2018.  While Covid changed our plans for 2020 we’re already planning for our next gathering in 2022.

ICISF teaches us the skills.  ICIRN helps us to apply them.
