Understanding Your First Responders Trauma and Stress Workshop

Peace4Tarpon was proud to sponsor the CODE 9 Project S.H.A.R.E. “Understanding Your First Responders Trauma and Stress Workshop” on May 20th at St. Petersburg College – Tarpon Springs Campus.    The workshop focused on helping the family members of first responders better understand trauma and stress patterns and the impact on the first responders and the family, address fear, anxiety, changing behavioral patterns, and provided support and self-help tools.

Co-founders of the Code 9 Project, Facilitators Deborah Ortiz and Lee Baker, presented the information in a caring and straightforward manner that the participants were able to connect with.  “The workshop was “real”, informative, and provided me with tools to help my family,” stated one participant.   Schnike!   It was great!
