The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Coping with Stress as a Responder to Victims of Violence and Trauma-Related Experiences

February 13, 2018  

Featuring Dr. Olivia Johnson, DM

Event Date: March 7, 2018

This symposium will focus on understanding the causes and effects of good stress (eustress), bad stress (distress), and ugly stress (chronic) often faced by law enforcement, first responders and other professionals who come in contact with and support victims of family violence and/or trauma-related life experiences. Methods and techniques for dealing with stress will be addressed: deep breathing, cognitive/mental reframing, and recognizing early onset of stress and anger before problems arise. This presentation is part of the FVCC’s continuing effort to educate and enhance services provided by our community partners and to provide training that will improve practices and support efforts to increase victim and community safety.
