Therapy for First Responders

560614282Daily stress and uncertainty can create unresolved emotions.

The call just came in, and the immediate and familiar surge of adrenalin hits. The lights and sirens flip on, and you race toward another call. You have some information from the dispatcher, but you know from experience you have nowhere near the whole story, and you don’t have all the information you’d like to have about the circumstances you will face.

Sometimes, it is an easy call with someone in distress needing help. But often, your day becomes filled with moving from one crisis to another. You are frequently aware of the risk to your safety and remain vigilant about your surroundings and the people you encounter. This job isn’t one where you can trust that everyone has your best interest in mind.

It is challenging to turn off the constant state of alert when it’s time to go home to family. There is no way to explain some of the painful and traumatic situations you experience in the ordinary course of your job.

Sometimes, you feel nothing. On other days, the intensity of the emotions is extreme to the situation. You love what you do, but the struggle to manage the impacts of the job is real. But who can you talk to? And if you did, wouldn’t that be a sign of weakness or lack of fitness for the job?
