Tania has provided another great source of information and inspiration. She shares a wealth of knowledge to a group of people who need it most. Read it. Learn it. Practice it. Live it.
Another priceless resource from Dr. Glenn for leadership and clinicians who are dedicated to providing effective support services to first responders. This guide offers step-by-step plans for creating and sustaining peer support teams, including details about the policies and pitfalls that will make or break your program. She shares her own tips, training topics, and expertise openly. I appreciate that she understands the perils of traditional group debriefing methods and offers more effective, trauma-informed, ethical guidelines for addressing the needs of personnel after a critical incident. This book is a must-read for any public safety agency, whether you have a peer support program already or are looking at starting one.
