This paper seeks to examine professional (trained specialists), and social networks (family, friends etc.) that are mobilized for acute care settings in crisis intervention within the province of Styria.The objective is to clarify what kind of benefits these networks provide for the people affected, and how effective the crisis intervention team?s (CIT) work is in this context. On the basis of the conclusions drawn, the paper explains psychotraumatological aspects, methods of the CIT, cooperation between trained professionals, as well as the importance of supporting social networks. A comprehensive document analysis of 192 CIT case reports discusses the issues, and visualization software creates a picture of the networks. The results show that the networking of trained professionals primarily facilitates information exchange. In most cases a strong social network is existent. The CIT?s interventions serve as a complementary support for the people affected. Emotional support (talks about what has happened, mourning and parting rituals), and informative interventions are the most effective ways to provide stability and help them to regain their strength.
