This workshop introduces training to help you build psychological flexibility and bounce back from a critical incident.  You will learn to sort what’s important to you, what shows up inside of you that’s painful about a critical incident memory, what you do to move away from that painful stuff, and instead what you could do to move toward what’s important to you.  It turns out that while sorting this stuff you will notice the unworkability of any strategies you are using to manage post critical incident stress reactions and how they are getting in the way of important areas of living like family, work, and friends.  The workshop concludes with considering how to implement training over the work career course to build psychological flexibility leading to healthy changes in resiliency, vulnerability, and work performance.  This is an 8 hour course taught by Frank J. Gallo, Ph.D. and a Licensed Clinical Psychologist HSP.  Dr. Gallo is also the Director of Traumatic Stress Recovery Center and a retired Cranston, RI Police Officer.    The course is from 1-5 PM on April 24th and from 8 AM to 12 noon on April 25th.  To register send a MLEA Course application to pszczepaniak2@mt.gov.
