Understanding the first responder culture
EMDR therapy can be very helpful to first responders (police, paramedics, firemen, and other emergency service personnel) who have been traumatized by their own work and perhaps impacted upon by earlier, unprocessed experiences. Understanding important elements of the first responder culture and psychology will be discussed as well as keys to effective treatment.
