Behavioral Health Training

Recent evidence has emerged which indicates that the way firefighters have been offered psychological support is not always practical or effective. This new model is based on a consensus approach derived from the best scientific data from military medicine, community psychology, and data from over twenty years of attending firefighter/EMS personnel.

At the conclusion of this course, students will understand the elements of the new model and begin the planning process of incorporating them into their fire and EMS service. The elements of the model include:

  • After Action Review
  • Curbside Manner: Stress First Aid for the Street
  • Trauma Screening Questionnaire
  • Behavioral Health Assistance Programs
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Peer Team Training and Coordination
