Trauma 101 - Expanded Understanding of Trauma for First Responders

A first responder is a person with specialized training who is among the first

to arrive and provide assistance at the scene of an emergency, such as an

accident, natural disaster or terrorism. First responders typically include law

enforcement officers, paramedics, EMT’s and firefighters.

Research shows that 67% of the population has experienced at least one Adverse

Childhood Experience. These trauma-based adversities are predictive

of a multitude of toxic physical, mental and social outcomes throughout a

person’s lifetime. First Responders can be better equipped to meet the needs

of those in their community with information that helps them appreciate the

complex nature of trauma. With respect for the primary responsibilities of

first responders, this multi-media, interactive workshop sheds light on the

potential deeper needs of the populations they serve.

Registrants will receive a link and materials prior to training date.
