As an essential part of each other’s support system, it is essential for First Responders and family members to understand the impact and how to work through it as a couple or family. In this webinar, we will discuss the biological and emotional impact of the job, how emotional stress presents itself in First Responders, and tools to assist with the impact of emotional stress.
