2020-2021 Calendar of General Meetings


Sunday, November 15, 2020
Supporting the First Responder
Time: 7:00 PM- 8:45PM
Format: Virtual

Presenter: Barbara Maurer, LPC, CTTS

First responders often put themselves in harms’ way for life saving/sustaining needs.  We know that first responders have high rates of traumatic exposure leaving them at risk for vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue.  This is exacerbated when the first responder is also directly affected by a disaster.  In these unprecedented times we are seeing psychological injuries in first responders at a high rate. This workshop will address some of the challenges and needs of working with first responders.  Evidence based practices will be discussed with some time allotted for discussion and questions.



Please note: All General Meetings will be held at the United Methodist Church of Summit, 17 Kent Place Boulevard, Summit NJ.  Please enter at the DeForest Avenue side entrance.  

Parking is available nearby; closest is the lot on the corner of DeForest & Woodland Ave. Enter church via the driveway on DeForest Ave.
