PTSD: Responding to Veterans and the Traumas of Service

Length of Seminar: 1 Day
Instructor: Silouan Green >>

Course Objective:

No officer hurt!, No veteran hurt!, a stronger community and more resilient police department.

This one day training module is taught by a veteran who has worked with veterans and police officers on issues of transition and service for almost a decade. A survivor of a tragic jet crash as a US Marine and someone who overcame severe PTSD, he understands personally the kind of issues veterans face coming home and how to respond to them.

More and more veterans are coming home to our communities. While many have a healthy transition, others face a myriad of difficulties from unemployment, depression, PTSD and in some cases, destructive behavior such as domestic violence, suicide, and other disturbances.

This class will prepare your officers to better respond to veterans while making themselves more resilient. Combat veterans and police officers have similar lifetime rates of conditions like PTSD, and a resilient police department is the best way to prepare to respond to veterans.

  • Understand the difficulties veterans face in the transition hope
  • Understand how PTSD develops and manifests itself in veterans
  • Understand how to defuse threatening situations with veterans
  • Understand why resilient officers better respond to veterans in distress
  • Create a culture of resiliency and pro-active community awareness of veteran's issues
