First Responders Trauma Treatment

People whose jobs put them in the line of danger, tragedy, stress and conflict often experience trauma, which can jeopardize their physical and mental health. We offer a six-day trauma workshop for first-responders including police officers, 911 dispatchers, firefighters, deputy sheriffs and military. Developed and led by clinicians trained in treating trauma, this program helps first responders address the taxing, sometimes paralyzing impact of being in danger or witnessing others in danger and teaches them healthy coping skills to deal with these situations going forward.

Components of Our First Responders Trauma Workshop Include:

  • Treatment alongside peers who’ve been through similar experiences and struggles
  • Clinicians specially trained in trauma and approaches that help first responders heal
  • Resiliency-building skills to help clients work more effectively
  • Education on trauma as a normal reaction to extreme, troubling circumstances
  • Comfortable, home-like residences
  • Individual and group therapy
  • Teachings from researcher, author and speaker Dr. Brené Brown’s Rising Strong curriculum
  • Meditation, outdoor adventure challenges and other alternative approaches
  • Resources and recommendations for continuing care if needed

Help For a Range of Trauma Effects

First responders commonly suffer from PTSD and what is known as post-traumatic stress injury (PTSI). Post-traumatic stress injury may include several distressing symptoms such as:

  • Flashbacks
  • Avoidance of situations that trigger troubling memories
  • Nightmares
  • Intrusive thoughts
  • Self-defeating thoughts
  • Loss of interest in usual activities
  • Hypervigilance
  • Poor mood
  • Detachment from loved ones

With the guidance of our trauma treatment team, first responders begin to address the underlying experiences and reactions that fuel these symptoms. By engaging in traditional and alternative therapeutic approaches, they learn how to honor their difficult experiences, apply healthy coping skills in the face of stress, and develop resiliency and overall well-being.
