About the Event
The PCIS is an experiential workshop for officers and other personnel who have experienced a critical incident. Despite helpful support immediately following a critical incident, there can be long lasting effects. Patterned on a format that has been used by the FBI for over 25 years, the PCIS will provide education on trauma, patterns of resolution, and field-tested coping strategies that promote recovery and resilience. Peer support is an important element of the PCIS. Discussion of incidents with fellow officers who have “been there” promotes normalization and recovery.
This program is offered to any first responder who has experienced a critical incident. Past participants include Police Officers, Sheriff’s Deputies, Federal Agents, ALE Agents, Wildlife Officers, Highway Patrol, Telecommunicators, and Fire and EMS personnel. Spouses/significant others are most welcome and highly encouraged to attend.
