This seminar will educate through “boots on the ground” experiences and will provide responders and their loved ones with a clear picture on why this profession leads to destructive and unhealthy lifestyle habits. We will demonstrate how our inability to manage the cumulative stress from daily exposures to adrenaline and trauma negatively affects our safety, decision-making and one’s ability to remain ethically solid.
You, your work “family and your loved ones will be armed with tools to manage the everyday unique stressors and will be able to recognize the warning signs for chronic and post-traumatic stress and suicidal behavior. You will learn realistic, simple and successful methods to help rescue the rescuers!
