Following the successful completion of two spouses’ groups, we are pleased to now offer a group for first responders themselves.
- Are you struggling with PTSD in relation to your role as a first responder?
- Do you seek support for this unique role along with other officers who are experiencing similar difficulties and want to learn how PTSD impacts your personal life and relationships and manage this more effectively?
Benefits of Group Therapy
- Group dynamics allow members to feel supported and accepted and this can reduce the stigma and isolation that they may experience
- Shared experiences provide a sense of community, while the diversity of members will provide opportunities for new insight of how to manage
- Group therapy provides a safe environment in which to take social risks and experiment with new ways of interacting and behaving
- Dynamics can be used by members to better understand how they relate to others and to make positive changes in their relationships
Upcoming Group Sessions
Themes that will be addressed will incorporate the meaning of being a police officer’s partner, including having to support a spouse who may be dealing with traumatic experiences and suffering from PTSD, and how this affects relationships and parenting.
- Sessions will be led by two clinical psychologists that have conducted similar groups
- Structured sessions are 1.5 hours and run weekly
- Therapy is covered by the health benefits plan for first responders
