Cambridge Psychology Centre can help first responders overcome the effects of the regular psychological stresses they face on the job. Most of our clients work in these fields, and our full-service clinic is equipped to help any first responders with their unique problems. We understand how medical workers, police officers and firefighters face potentially traumatic incidents in their routines, which, added together, these traumas can take a severe toll on mental health and well-being.
Trauma Therapy For First Responders
First responders have a unique role in society; they have the training and experience to help at the scene of an emergency. Law enforcement officers, healthcare workers, and firefighters have to respond to both powerful incidents like accidents, natural disasters, crimes, surgeries, deaths, and other violent events, but also come into contact with repetitive experiences such as child abuse, neglect, combat or urban violence. These incidences can have a psychological impact that, over time, prevents workers in these fields from doing their jobs effectively. The Cambridge Psychology Centre uses techniques based on the best evidence available.
