Archived: Fit for Duty: Identifying and Managing Cumulative Stress Disorder in Organizations, Yourself, and Others

Overview
Every 4 days, a first responder in the US commits suicide. Nearly everyone has heard of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and how millions of first responders and service personnel are affected by it. What happens when we experience the same symptoms as PTSD, yet can’t point to a specific event?
Cumulative Stress Disorder (CSD) is difficult to spot. It is the result of small-scale events continually building upon each other.
This webinar will provide:
  • Real-life stories and overview of Cumulative Stress Disorder; what it is and the impact it has on EMS providers
  • Signs to look for in yourself, your colleagues, and your providers
  • Tools you can use and resources to implement to help yourself, your colleagues, and your providers
All webinar attendees will receive an e-book on Self-Care Tips for Managing Stress.
