Course Description:

The First Responder Resiliency and Peer Support Training Course is
a practical course of instruction designed to prepare first responder
peer supporters with the ability to conduct individual psychological
debriefings, provide peer support, make appropriate professional
intervention referrals for peers and their family members, as needed,
and connect these approaches to the enhancement of human
resiliency.
This unique course provides the newly assigned peer supporter with an
understanding of first responder stress, physiological aspects of stress,
an overview of mental health issues, factors in first responder suicide,
effective communication, and drug and alcohol use and abuse.
Students will learn how to conduct individual psychological
debriefings, as well as initiate and manage peer support programs.
Special emphasis on the stress of law enforcement undercover
operations, assignment to high-risk or specialized teams, exposure
to first responder critical incidents, and the effects of a depressed
economy will be addressed. A dynamic group study and presentation
is required for successful completion of the course.
