Description

EMOTIONAL BODY ARMOR
for FIRST RESPONDERS©



Is a FREE two-day training (2 sessions/day 1000 – 1200 hours and 1330 – 1530 hours) open to all officers and their significant others identifying those issues that manifest while working on the front lines of a demanding career that can lead to many issues regarding (but not limited to) trauma, relationships, finances, mental health and substance abuse matters that can result in the loss of relationships, jobs and eventually their life.

These trainings are designed for all first responders and their family members if they choose, to provide them with the tools to help individuals being held back both personally and professionally by the bonds of the addictive behaviors, co-dependency, family systems or trauma in any form. Participants will examine those barriers and experiences that influence the capacity for a happy, healthy life and career. The intensive training experience will reveal how painful life and job experiences are and that they can hamper the growth of individuals and block the ability to be authentic in relationships with self and others.

While there is a stigma associated with reaching out for help or reaching out for help for others within the profession, the trainings are designed to overcome these barriers. The trainings are also 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, using tools to increase self-esteem, to understanding and effectively experience all emotions and creating a tactical personal self-care plan to be successful in their personal and professional lives.
