Facilitated by Dr. Dion Goodland, R.Psych; with Katherine Houde, ACP, Carla Ball & Mark Heerema, Crown Attorneys
This workshop is a collaboration between EMC, the NS Public Prosecution Service (PPS) and APNS, in response to a need for psychologists across Nova Scotia, who are trained and skilled in evidence-based treatments for PTSD, as well as having an awareness of the culture of paramedics and Crown Attorneys. The goal of this particular workshop is to develop a Registered Roster of Service Providers for referral by EMC and PPS in the Annapolis Valley and SouthWest Nova area. The program will be divided into four sections:
1. A review of the culture facilitated by paramedics and Crown Attorneys. Also, participants will be able to have an experiential experience in the paramedic and legal environment.
2. Assessing and Diagnosing PTSD
3. Treatment of PTSD
4. Vicarious Traumatization
Please note there are a limited number of spaces available for this workshop.
