Red Cross provides stress management to Resorts World employees

“Would you like to talk about what happened?”


This was one of the questions asked by Philippine Red Cross (PRC) Welfare

Service officers while conducting stress management sessions for Resorts World

employees affected by the shooting incident at the casino on June 2.


“I felt unburdened,” said an employee who requested anonymity. The Critical

Incident Stress Management (CISM) sessions were provided to 25 Resorts World

employees on June 5, through PRC’s psychosocial support program.


CISM enables people to share their experiences, feelings, and reactions during and

after an incident without fear of judgment. It is done to identify current and

anticipated stress responses, discuss coping skills for reducing stress, and

contingency plans.


Five PRC-Welfare teams, which included social workers, a volunteer clinical

psychologist, and the Welfare Manager, helped the employees come up with their

personal coping mechanisms. More CISM sessions are scheduled to benefit more

Resorts World Manila employees affected by the incident.
