1 Week That Will Completely Change Your Life

November 2019

You're going to learn so many things.. about yourself.. about life.

  • About Trauma
  • Personal Trauma Timeline
  • Your Story
  • EMDR
  • CBT

On Day One you'll learn a lot about yourself. You'll get some really deep education about trauma. You'll have an opportunity to participate in EMDR trauma therapy. And you'll know more than ever about how trauma happens, what it affects, and how it's treated.  Full Immersion means full participation, and more than just listening to a presenter talk about some stuff.  This will be a learning experience like no other.

  • Maslow’s Hierarchy
  • Self-Fulfilling Prophecy
  • Depression / Suicide (MH Simulation)
  • Medical Response to Suicide Attempts (Med Simulation)

On Day Two you'll learn about personal needs, life experiences, and we'll talk through depression & suicide. On this day we begin simulation activities, realistic practice experiences that you'll never forget.  You also will learn what to do, medically, in response to a suicide attempt, in a medical simulation experience. The training center uses simulation rooms - 2-way glass with video-streaming and an instructor outside listening and coaching. Unlike your typical role-play, you will interact here with highly skilled actors for a truly life-like practice experience.

  • Articulating Your Struggle (MH Simulation)
  • Asking About Struggle (MH Simulation)
  • The Importance of Support/Network
  • Your Community
  • Stand for a Peer

Day Three will teach you how to ask others if they're struggling, and also how to answer that question if you aren't actually "fine." Day Three immerses you in education and simulation experiences that show the importance of peer support and community in the first responder world. A field trip this day will enrich your learning and create a truly memorable experience.

  • Common Mental Health Disorders / presentations
  • Interacting with MHD’s (MH Simulation)
  • MHD Medication & Treatments (Med Simulation)

Day Three is an intense education about common mental disorders and mental illnesses, how they affect someone, and the best & worst ways to interact with individuals with mental disorders & illnesses. More practice sessions today, including some to teach the difference between medical/drug reactions and mental illness behaviors, as well as how medications affect mental disorder behaviors. You will interact with specialized actors who will strengthen your skills in real-life simulation sessions.

  • Treatment Centers / Resources
  • Treatment Center Intake & Program (Simulation)
  • Emergency Order of Detention (EoD)(Simulation)
  • Self-Care (Can’t Give What You Don’t Have)

Day Five will be a deep lesson in the different resources available for responders and the public, and why you have different needs. You'll learn what treatment is like, through simulation experiences, and will also experience the consequences of not receiving treatment or practicing self-care. Another field trip will create a real-life simulation to bring this lesson to a deeper level of understanding.
