(LIVE) Instructed by: Mike Donahue, Karen Deppa
As emergency responders, you are so focused on taking care of others that you might forget to take care of yourself. That can make you vulnerable to burnout, depression, PTSD, and other behavioral health problems associated with an already stressful job complicated by a pandemic. Learn about the three primary skills (we call them the Three Pillars) that are most frequently associated with resilient responses in the fire and EMS community. These are skills that you can learn and practice to help prevent the effects of psychological distress. We will then guide you through three activities – one for each of the Three Pillars – so you can create your own tools to help strengthen your resilience for dealing with traumatic stress.
