Individual and Group Training
Our intensive one and two-day workshops for individuals and groups identify issues which manifest while working on the front lines and can lead to many issues including trauma, relationship management, finances, mental health, and substance abuse. These workshops are designed for first responders, medical professionals, and their family members. Areas of focus include addictive behaviors, co-dependency, family interactions and systems, and trauma in any form. Participants examine the barriers and experiences that influence and reduce their capacity for a happy, healthy life and career. This experience will reveal how painful life and job experience, when unaddressed and untreated, can hamper growth and block the ability to form bonds.
While there is a stigma associated with reaching out for help or reaching out for help, our trainings are designed to overcome these barriers. They are designed to empower first responders to look within and confront issues (both on and off the job) such as trauma, co-dependent relationships, setting healthy boundaries. They will learn to access a variety of tools to increase self-esteem, improve emotional and behavioral management, and to create a tactical personal self-care plan so that they can be successful in their personal and professional lives.
