EMDR & the first responder: Bringing hope and healing to those suffering in silence with hidden symptoms

Description

First Responders” (Police Officers, Firefighters, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT), Paramedics, Dispatchers), live with cumulative stress while intervening in traumatic human experiences. While most of us believe they are psychologically ‘tough’ and resilient, enabling them to tolerate repeat exposure, many suffer in silence. This presentation will expose the hidden stress-filled world of First Responders, the ongoing stigmas which block appropriate interventions, how psycho-education and EMDR treatment can result in healthier, more productive first response teams. EMDR Case examples will enlighten and inspire those who attend.
