Course Description:

Family members of our public safety responder’s are a big part of the natural support system fundamental to the responder’s well-being.  When a critical event or other crisis   activates a stress response in the responder, family members may not be included in the support offered by the agency or department.  This class will take the standard ICISF interventions, modify and adjust them for family interventions.  An accepted approach that accommodates the needs of family members can provide education and reassuring services that support our responder’s family members.
