Event Focus

The event will focus on personal resilience, stress, and adaptive capacity for the first responder community.

  • Please note this webinar is a Pilot session in the U.S. and we look forward to receiving feedback from all course attendees.


It is estimated that first responders are 40% more likely than the general population to develop behavioral health conditions including PTSD and depression (Abbot et al., 2015), while 70% report not having enough time to recover in between the traumatic events they experience (Bentley, et al., 2013). The goal of this course is to destigmatize mental health and open conversations around the stressors of the job, the importance of building resilience, and managing stress in the responder community. This introductory course will help responders understand how resilience and stress impacts their industry and what tools are available to help everyone succeed. This course will offer methods of stress management that aim to reduce stress as a preventative measure, during an incident, and after a stress inducing event. In addition to stress coping strategies, we will also explore strategies to build personal resilience and adaptive capacity in responders.
