Traumatic Incident Response for Fire and Rescue Chaplains
MGJ People Support Ltd is offering a series of one day training courses aimed at Chaplains whose role includes supporting Fire Fighters following traumatic incidents.
Their trainer is Gerry Jackson who is a retired police officer with personal experience at major disaster scenes such as Lockerbie, Kegworth and the Marchioness Riverboat, in his role, at the time, as leader of the Met Police Body Recovery and Identification Team.
He has been supporting and training Fire Fighters for many years, including supporting those involved in the Shirley Towers fire in Southampton where two Fire Fighters died.
The training is based on the latest government guidance on supporting people after trauma and complies with the model used by the major providers of Employee Assistance Programmes across the UK. The model is called Psychological First Aid (PFA) and offers a skill set and practical support assistance that will enhance the ability of Chaplains, who have existing skills and experience, to support those affected by difficult incidents. The training is endorsed by the College of Health Care Chaplains.
A 25% discount is available for 3 or more delegates.
