Emergencies, disasters and crises are inevitable. Preparation, response, recovery and mitigation with competently delivered care during and after an event ensure greater resiliency for agencies, facilities, employees, and communities. FAU delivers unique, hands-on, experiential training with practical application for regional professionals working in emergency management, public safety, public health, first response, emergency medicine, crisis and disaster management.
With every emergency or crisis, a multitude of psychological impacts emerge across all demographics for both the public sector and first responder communities. In partnership with the International Collaboration on Trauma and Resilience (ICTR), FAU offers a fully online Mental Health for Trauma and Resilience training program, taught by traumatology and resilience experts. The six-module format delves into the dynamics and neurobiology of trauma and resilience, and the holistic approach; psychological first aid and trauma; pre-, during, and post-crisis resiliency training; spiritual resiliency, and humor first aid; innovative approaches to emotional care and coping; and the “Formation of Band of Brothers/Band of Sisters” for leading community resilience and support groups.
The Public Safety Leadership Development Certificate Program consists of two tracks: Track One for newer supervisors and Track Two for experienced managers. Each track is a 4-day course designed for the next generation of South Florida public safety leaders including police officers, firefighters, paramedics, and supporting services. Participants will develop crucial leadership skills and behaviors that will enhance their own careers, their agencies, and the communities they serve.
