Winning The Battle – Pain Behind The Badge
This powerful and motivating presentation is a very effective tool used to help first responders, police personnel, fire personnel, hospital personnel, military personnel, civilian employees and spouses deal with tragedies commonly referred to as ‘Critical Incidents.’ It is even more effective in helping the same personnel deal with the everyday stressors associated with their chosen careers that can and often do result in career-ending actions such as PTSD, depression, cumulative stress, domestic violence, failed relationships, alcoholism, substance abuse and even suicide.
