Drawn from his many years of experience with officer-involved shootings, line-of-duty deaths, and “everyday traumas,” Dr. McDougall will provide the audience with the day-to-day incidents that can cause cumulative trauma and complex post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Dr. McDougall will share clinical scenarios that reveal the numerous ways in which officers’ professional and personal lives are impacted by cumulative trauma.
Learn how first responders are becoming trauma-informed and hear the practical applications of putting trauma-informed strategies in place.
First responders such as law enforcement officers, firefighters, and emergency medical services (EMS) professionals provide life-saving services all day, every day. However, the nature of their work puts them in constant risk – physically, mentally, and emotionally. Compounding an already stressful job, first responders face the front lines of the opioid crisis and are being profoundly affected by it.
