Understanding Effects of Crisis and Trauma for First Responders

The submission of this proposal is in recommendation of Dr. Gopal. The recommendation for a panel format is what she has suggested. I agree and would like to present the dynamics of how secondary trauma can effect Law Enforcement. The influence of the environment that saturates their world plays a hard impact on their lives. Each and every response can be life threatening as well as heart wrenching, anything from human trafficking, child deaths, domestic violence, school shootings, terrorism and more.
