First Responders

Support for First Responders & Their Families

Many members of the First Responders community, which consists of law enforcement, military, medical and behavioral health care, emergency response, and other frontline workers, are exposed to traumatic events on a regular basis, which often times leads to a disruption in their personal lives. The separation between work and home life for many in the first responder community is a difficult task. Work-related, or “vicarious” trauma, doesn’t stop once you punch out for the day.   Unfortunately, for some, there is a stigma associated with help-seeking and self-care, which can lead to poor coping, increased substance use, isolation, sleep problems, and challenges with interpersonal relationships.

 

At Konick and Associates, we are here to help with the challenges you may face when work-related stress causes disruptions in your daily functioning, home life, or interpersonal relationships.  Our experienced trauma-informed clinical associates will assist you with the development of a skill set aimed at providing you with an understanding of vicarious trauma and post-traumatic stress, while normalizing treatment and the trauma response you may be experiencin​g.
