Thursday, June 20, 2019 -
8:30am to 4:30pm

This in-person workshop on Working with First Responders: What Every Clinician Needs to Know is presented by Drs. Jaime Brower, Rhonda Kelley, and Michael Pitrusu. Our emergency responders make up an ever-growing group of law enforcement, firefighters, dispatch, emergency medical professionals, corrections/detentions, victim advocates, and others. This group is faced with unique challenges on a daily basis that impact both their own and their family’s mental health.

This workshop will provide core knowledge for all mental health clinicians who have interest in, or who may be already, working with our emergency responders. This workshop will promote cultural competence, will provide knowledge regarding the ethical and legal concepts associated with working these populations, will define core proficiencies and terminology, as well as enhance an overall understanding of how each clinician working with this population can do so effectively and competently.
