Registration for 9th Annual IDMH Training

Friday, April 20, 2012Hits : 179

The 9th Annual IDMH Conference will consist of a set of trainings that focus on building responder capacity and maintaining resilience among trauma and disaster workers. Disaster response, trauma work, and emergency management are intrinsically and uniquely stressful, and it is essential that the inherent occupational hazards be mitigated through proactive stress management and effective self-care strategies. The care that responders provide to others can only be as good as the care they provide themselves.

Building Capacity: Managing and Mitigating Responder Stress
Friday, April 20, 2012

Sponsored by the NYS Office of Emergency Management, SUNY New Paltz Campus Auxiliary Services, and NY/NJ Preparedness and Emergency Response Learning Center

The training will feature presenters who are experts on the interrelated work of mitigating the stress and maximizing the rewards of trauma work, on both individual and organizational levels (for details, see speaker bios).  Each presenter will discuss foundational concepts, current research and recommended practices, and lessons learned from their experiences in the field.
