Improving first responder resiliency with EMDR
While many EMDR Therapists are trained in treating people who have experienced traumatic events, this doesn’t guarantee they will be effective with the unique needs of the first responder population. Dr. Gilman’s presentation will address how EMDR treatment can benefit first responders who are repeatedly exposed to traumatic incidents, and how EMDR therapists can be successful with this population. Through her ‘lessons learned,’ over 25 years working with police officers, firefighters, medical personnel, dispatchers and other emergency service professionals, she will provide real life examples and updated research to support the value of EMDR with this population who we all depend on in times of great need.
