The Law Enforcement Resiliency and Peer Support Training Course is a practical course of instruction designed to provide peer counselors with the ability to conduct individual psychological debriefings, provide peer counseling, make appropriate professional intervention referrals for peers and their family members as needed, and connect these approaches to the enhancement of human resiliency in the field of law enforcement and emergency response.
This training is open to Law Enforcement Officers, Fire Personnel, EMS, Police Chaplains, CIT officers and supervisors, Community Mental Health Liaisons, and anyone else who may be involved in the response to traumatic events and managing the aftereffects.
This unique course provides the newly assigned peer counselor with an understanding of traumatic stress, physiological aspects of stress, an overview of mental health issues, factors in emergency responder suicide, effective communication, and drug and alcohol use and abuse.
