The Language of Resilience

by Dr. Les Kertay Sunday, January 17, 2016


The recent Blog, “The Language of Resilience” by Dr. Les Kertay, answers the question what is Critical Incident Response (CIR) for and what is the expected outcome of CIR? Many of the events Critical Incident Response is used for are not typically thought of as a Critical Incident. Thinking in terms of “Critical Incidents” may lead us to assume pathology when the most common outcome to any stressful event is resilience. Dr. Kertay suggests a more accurate term is “Potentially Disruptive Event” as humans are developed to endure stress, manage its effects, and return to life, often more resilient than before. Providing guidance and support to this natural process of resilience is the purview of CIR.

Dr. Les Kertay is a Licensed and Board Certified Clinical Psychologist with extensive experience in mind-body health including disability medicine, chronic pain, and health behaviors as well as being a leader and consultant on strategies to manage workplace absence and a practicing clinician and industry consultant.  Dr. Kertay is currently Chief Medical Officer with R3 Continuum (Crisis Management International, Crisis Care Network, Behavioral Medical Interventions).
