Description

GUARDIANS OF HOPE

Presented by the Counseling & Education Center and St. Mary's Medical Center

We are thrilled to welcome KEVIN BRIGGS as our CEC Annual Event speaker on September 28, 2018. This former California Highway Patrol Sergeant, veteran, father, author and speaker is internationally known as Guardian of the Golden Gate. Throughout his years of patrolling the Golden Gate Bridge, he convinced hundreds of people not to jump to their deaths. Briggs never calls himself a hero, but countless others do.

Now he tours the country, sharing profound insights and strategies that help people emerge from their darkest times. In Grand Junction, Briggs will present and explore active listening, suicide prevention, crisis negotiations and courageous conversations. Whoever you are, whatever your age, this will impact your life.

Briggs has been featured in The New Yorker magazine, Men's Health magazine, the San Francisco Chronicle, NPR's Bob Edwards Show, the Steve Harvey Show, and People magazine. He also spoke at the national TED Conference in Vancouver, BC. His book, Guardian of the Golden Gate, is available on Amazon.

Briggs will present two half-day sessions on Friday, September 28th: 8:30-11:30 AM and 1:00-4:00 PM. Register for morning OR afternoon session: $40 per person.

For more information, contact CEC at 970-243-9539 or email Nancy@CecWeCare.org
