TBI, PTSD & Other Injuries

The primary goals of this course will be:
1. Educate the student on the psycho-social effects of certain “invisible injuries.”
2. Identify and examine best practices in communication specifically when dealing with persons in crisis who have experienced or are experiencing the effects of brain injuries and/ or stress related injuries.
3. Influence and enhance communication skills to reduce the risks of violent confrontations and prevent potentially violent, suicidal and or homicidal individuals from inflicting harm upon themselves or others. 


With the overwhelming research on the number of American citizens whom suffer from a variety of “invisible injuries,” it has become overtly apparent that we must train to understand and prepare for encounters where a person in crisis has suffered or is suffering from Brain Trauma or Stress Trauma.  The purpose of this course is to bring to light the prevalence of these issues and encourage a dialog with the First Responder, Military, Medical, and Academic communities, to establish a means and method of communication during times of crisis.  This course will be delivered as a skills development course to count toward mandatory in-service training hours required for Hostage/Crisis Negotiations and Peer Support/Family Assistance teams.


This course will identify the causes, long term effects, and other issues surrounding Traumatic & Acquired Brain Injuries, and Post Traumatic Stress with a primary focus on; First Responders, Detectives, Crime Scene/ M.E., Medical/ER personnel and Military Veterans. 

This course will take an in depth look into the mental health and medical aspects of recently acquired, and previous untreated brain injuries, as well as post-traumatic stress related Injuries. 

This course will explore the implications these issues will have on the Law Enforcement / First Responder community in crisis communications and use-of-force encounters. 


This course will primarily target individuals who have been assigned to or utilized for the purposes of Telecommunications, Crisis Communications, Hostage/Crisis Negotiations, and Peer Support/Family Assistance Teams.  However, this course would be beneficial for any individual actively engaged in Law Enforcement, Corrections, Fire/ EMS, Mental Health Services, Education, and the Medical Community.
