Brief personal statement

I have been trained in all forms of Crisis Response and Disaster Stress Management/Mental Health. I have provided services to schools and communities around the world after they have experienced a disaster or traumatic event. I also have developed and delivered effective prevention programs and have been an advisor to FEMA, Disaster International, US Department of Education and a host of other agencies. I have authored numerous books and articles on prevention, response and recovery and on grief and loss. I volunteer through Green Cross Academy of Traumatology and deploy into locations as needed. I have a particular passion for working with schools and with volunteers and non traditional first responders. Some consider me a pioneer in the field and have been awarded a Life Time Achievement Award by ICISF for my pioneering and continued work in school systems. I travel where I'm asked and provide both quality customized training and actual field services. I teach Compassion Fatigue, Field Traumatology, Suicide Prevention and Intervention, Violence Prevention and Conflict Mediation. I am the subject matter expert for a software planning program called Aftermath: Schools and helped to design this tool to create an immediate response plan following over 35 potential school site incidents. I have conducted Suicide Prevention workshops groups as diverse as SWAT team members, Youth Pastors and Transgendered Substance Abuse Counselors.

I am most proud of the work that has been done in communities that DON'T make the news... because they took a proactive stance and implemented quality prevention programs. And have done intervention and support of the vulnerable members of their communities.
