Coping with Secondary Traumatic Stress

Coping with trauma in policing

This course offers an explanation of secondary traumatic stress, how it differs from post-traumatic stress and burnout, and how it impacts first responders and their families. Proactive and reactive strategies are offered for individuals and organizations to mitigate the accumulation of stress resulting in secondary traumatic stress disorder (STSD).

Building Resilience

Police resilience

This course applies the research on resilience to first responder work, discussing risk and protective factors. Strategies are offered to assist first responders to identify personal risk and protective factors, in order to  decrease the risk factors (ex.- isolating, faulty thinking, avoidance) and increase protective factors (seeking support, improving health, purpose).

ICISF Assisting Individuals in Crisis

Police resilience

This program is designed to teach participants the fundamentals of, and a specific protocol for, individual crisis intervention.This course is designed for anyone who desires to increase their knowledge of individual (one-on-one) crisis intervention techniques in the fields of Business & Industry, Crisis Intervention, Disaster Response, Education, Emergency Services, Employee Assistance, Healthcare, Homeland Security, Mental Health, Military, Spiritual Care, and Traumatic Stress.

Building And Restoring Resilience Through Peer Support & C.I.S.M.

CISM Peer Support

In this course, I discuss the complementary roles of proactive resilience building (peer support) and critical incident response (CISM). Attendees will learn how to use peer support to inoculate co-workers from the impacts of daily stressors and traumas, further inoculating them from future critical incident stress. To achieve this, they will learn how to identify the common and uncommon signs of mental health issues affecting co-workers and how to have helpful conversations to support them. They will also learn how to manage unique challenges in the supporter role such as confidentiality, suicidality, disciplinary investigations, and healthy boundaries. Role-play exercises will fortify learning, allowing for immediate feedback to improve interpersonal effectiveness. 

C.P.R. for Resilient Families

Resilient police families

This course offers families of first responders insights into the changes that occur over the

career of the first responder. Families are assisted in identifying these changes and

communicating them in a supportive manner to their first responder. They also learn to

build their own resilience, as they adapt to the givens of first responder work (danger,

shiftwork, public scrutiny). Lastly, families are equipped with resources to continue

building their resilience, which will, in turn, fortify the first responder’s resilience.

ICISF Group Crisis Intervention

image6

Designed to present the core elements of a comprehensive, systematic and multi-component crisis intervention curriculum, the Group Crisis Intervention course will prepare participants to understand a wide range of crisis intervention services. Fundamentals of Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) will be outlined and participants will leave with the knowledge and tools to provide several group crisis interventions, specifically demobilizations, defusings and the Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD). The need for appropriate follow-up services and referrals when necessary will also be discussed.


This course is designed for anyone in the fields of Business & Industry Crisis Intervention, Disaster Response, Education, Emergency Services, Employee Assistance, Healthcare, Homeland Security, Mental Health, Military, Spiritual Care, and Traumatic Stress.
