Integrating EMD/Recent Event: A crisis response protocol for public safety
Integrating EMD and Recent Events Protocol in a Crisis Response Protocol (CRP) for First Responders and Public Safety Responders, clinicians can prevent critical incidents from contributing to more complex symptom manifestation while enhancing resilience and adaptive memory networks. This decreases the frequency, duration, and intensity of symptoms often allowing the professional to successfully return to duty. The goal of this CRP is to prevent maladaptive encoding of index events in effort to decrease the likelihood of the professional developing stress-related disorders. By providing this EMD/Recent Events Crisis Response Protocol, clients achieve early relief of intense symptoms and a positive association with EMDR therapy.
