In an era of violence and ever-increasing trauma, recovery becomes an act of courage, resistance and resilience. First Responders experience repeated and direct exposure to traumatic events, frequently with only short periods of time to process before a new exposure. Join Dr. Tim Black, one of Canada’s leading specialists in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, to unpack how education, skills training and strategic use of social responses can help to increase an individual’s resilience in their process and help to protect from future harm due to stigmatization.
This is a professional development course designed for all frontline health professionals including, but not limited to, Police, Fire, Ambulance, Search and Rescue, 911 dispatchers, emergency management volunteers, and front line workers in shelters and clinics.
