"Reclaiming Your Life, One Thought and One Breath at a Time" 

Critical Incident Preparedness and Response

We help corporations develop the communications and psychological response aspects of their critical incident plans. We also provide private consultations, company-wide seminars, and on-the ground counseling structured to facilitate human, institutional and community recovery, and thus productivity, in the aftermath of a critical incident.

Our team is led by Dr. Roselyn Smith, who, prior to returning for doctoral training in Clinical Psychology, worked as a hospital administrator, marketing and corporate communications executive for a nationwide transportation company, and an international event producer/consultant. She was often called upon to be the public spokesperson, including during and following critical incidents. The combination of corporate experience, exceptional doctoral level psychological training, research, and real world critical incident response deployment experience, has given her unique insight into how best to assess, prioritize, and address corporate, institutional, and community communications and human needs following a critical incident.

The Importance of Calming Reactivity

Reactivity is an innate and automatic response within all living creatures. It activates the nervous, cardiac, and endocrine systems in ways that not only adversely impact psychological well-being and relationships over time, but that can also be very detrimental to physical health. Working on calming reactivity on a daily basis, as a car cuts you off, when you have to stand in long lines, when people behave in ways that you consider rude, etc... can help to train our brains and bodies to respond more gently and in a healthier way even when major events occur. Imagine what a better place this world would be if all of its inhabitants worked on calming their reactivity toward one another and themselves.
