    AGENDA

    Day 1 - November 7th

    **Classes and Scheduling are Subject To Change

    - Doors Open at 7:30am -

    8:00am - 8:30am- INTRODUCTION/FRAMING THE SEMINAR

    • 8:30am - 9:30am - I TRIED TO LEAVE IT BEHIND, IT FOLLOWED ME HOME
      Speaker - Dr Kathyrn Hamel and Kevin J. Connors, The Hecht Trauma Institute

      This class will develop an understanding of how trauma affects a person at a neurobiological level and helps us understand the pervasive and persistent impact on our personal and interpersonal experience. The class will also help in recognizing the neurobiological impact of trauma to help victims, peers, and clinicians better appreciate the behaviors and feelings of people exposed to chronic stress.

    • 9:30am - 10:30am - RETHINKING TRAUMA
      Speaker - Battalion Chief Dena Ali, Raleigh (NC) Fire Department

      PTSD has become a common phrase in emergency services, yet our understanding of its manifestation, diagnosis, and treatment is not well known. This class will lean on evidence-based research to explain the origins of trauma and more importantly, the path towards resiliency.

    • 10:35am - 11:30am - WHEN WORKING OUT ISN’T ENOUGH: STRATEGIES TO HEAL FROM CRITICAL INCIDENTS
      Speaker - Dr. Heather Williams, Premier 1st Responder Psychological Services

      When stressed, emergency responders usually resort to their “go-to” in order to cope, whether it is working out, going for a jog, or simply throwing a line in the water to fish. Dr. Williams will walk through her “Admit, Talk, Heal” approach for when your coping mechanism isn’t enough to manage the stress and trauma you face.

    11:30pm - 1:00pm: LUNCH

    • 1:00pm - 1:55pm - CHANGING THE WAY WE TREAT SUICIDE
      Speaker - Tarynn Hiatt, American Foundation For Suicide Prevention

      Suicide is a sensitive topic to discuss. Stigma and fear continue to keep those who are struggling to get the help they need and deserve. Accurate reporting of suicide remains difficult and increases our need to invest more resources for this leading cause of death.

    • 2:00pm - 2:55pm - AFTER THE ALARM
      Speaker - Dr. Mynda Ohs, Fully Involved Life

      Dr. Ohs focuses on emergency responders and behavioral health issues as they approach retirement knowing that they won’t be needed anymore, there won’t be any more emergencies, and the adrenaline rush and camaraderie are gone.

    2:55pm - 3:05pm: BREAK

    • 3:05pm - 4:00pm - THE IMPORTANCE OF TELEHEALTH
      Speaker - Dr. Suzy Gulliver, The Warrior Research Institute

      One thing COVID brought us was the acceptance of Zooms and video conferencing as legitimate ways to conduct business. This goes for medicine and personal health as well. Dr. Gulliver will cover the importance of telehealth and how we truly define truth-based treatment.

    • 4:00pm - 5:30pm - WHY WE NEED SLEEP
      Speaker - Dr. Matthew Walker, Professor of Neuroscience and Sleep at the University of California, Berkeley

      This foundational class with the world’s premiere expert on sleep deprivation lays out the science of sleep and how the lack of it contributes to just about every health problem emergency responders face. Also provides invaluable tips on how to improve sleep so you can work to establish new health and safety standards back at home.


    Day 2 - November 8th

    8:00am - 8:15am- HOUSEKEEPING ITEMS/INTRO OF KEYNOTE SPEAKER

    • 8:15am - 9:30am - KEYNOTE HAVING EACH OTHER’S BACK
      Speaker - Jocko Willink, Echelon Front

      Set the tone that it is critical for emergency responders to be there for one another. This means taking the responsibility of educating yourself on being able to recognize the signs of behavioral health issues and taking that first step to make sure someone is okay.

    9:30am - 9:25am: BREAK

    • 9:45am - 10:40am - WHEN THE CALL COMES
      Speaker - Chief Bryan Frieders. The Fire Fighter Cancer Support Network

      The Firefighter Cancer Support Network will discuss the events in the immediate hours of a cancer diagnosis and how to help friends, family, and co-workers get through that early phase of how to cope with someone who has received the dreaded call to inform them of a cancer diagnosis.

    10:40am - 10:50am: BREAK

    • 10:50am - 11:45am - WHEN THE PEER TEAM MEMBER NEEDS THE HELP
      Speaker - Jason Presley

      Every department has them. The member that is always there front and center leading the charge when other members of the department are in need. But what happens when that person is the one needing help? Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Jason Presley walks you through his story of being that guy, becoming the one who needed help, and steps you can take to stay healthy and be there for your members.

    11:45am - 12:45pm: LUNCH

    • 12:45pm - 1:45pm - ADDRESSING SUICIDE FOR EMERGENCY RESPONDERS
      Speaker - Battalion Chief Dena Ali, Raleigh (NC) Fire Department

      As first responders, when we think of mental health disorders, we often think in terms of us vs them. We believe that our responsibility to our community means we can never show any sort of weakness. This misperception can lead members to suppress emotions and fail to address the underlying causes that can build into crisis. Attendees will learn methods to prevent suicide by learning its traceable causes. Rather than focusing on individual risk factors, this course is designed to explain how creating an environment to encourage help seeking behavior can alter an individual's trajectory from reaching suicide.

    1:45pm - 2:00pm: BREAK

    5:00pm: EVENT CLOSE
