Wonderful! Thank you John.
can you put that link in the chat?
That link did not work for me, but this one did:

Thanks, Andrew. That link worked better than searching the title

So we should start treating SWAT debriefs like we should teach teenagers?
Is he showing slides that I'm not seeing?
the current slide is the 11 bullet points under CISM Tools. he is just building on the points right now.
just switched to Key Objectives …..
Kelly Bowman-Missouri Highway Patrol Communications/PEER Team Member-The SWAT debriefings I have done have been probably the most productive ones.
Which was surprising to me.
I have done a few SWAT ones, and the ones that work the best are when SWAT are alone. If they are mixed amongst the "others," they wont talk if given the options more often than not.
Christopher Chavous you are absolutely correct!
Do you mean alone as in they were debriefed as a team apart from others involved, or debriefing individual team members?
ref CISD … we have done it both ways here … just depends on the situation … it was def more successful when they are separated from the rest of the personnel involved.
My experience has been debriefing them apart from others involved we had better success.
as a former swat guy, I know their mentality - don't agree with it, but they are a tough cookie to break in front of non-swat
I agree. I have debriefed them as a full team, apart from others involved in the incident, and it went really well each time. I have been a communications support member for our SWAT team for 11 years, and a medic on our team for 3 years. That was a concern initially, that they wouldn't be real open, even apart from others. But, as I said before, they ended up being some of the best ones I have done.
Nice. TY for your service in both areas w swat and as a peer!
The underlying emotional and spiritual need for pride in work is meaning. Being a provider provides meaning. But being a role model for coping with adversity is also a source of meaning. It's no exaggeration to say to a parent who has lost their job that they may do one of their most important jobs as parent at this time, by how they respond to this international crises.For my hospice patients, I've found this kind of conversation helpful many times, especially for WWII-era folks who feel worthless because they can no longer work, mow the lawn, prepare meals, etc. But they are role-modeling how to approach the end of their life -- a great gift for their children and grandchildren.
my director and one other trained facilitator did a defusing via with an offsite location. said it worked wonderfully
defusing via what?
sorry, via Zoom
ha don't be sorry … that is one of my biggest questions … "what is everyone using for doing virtual CISM services?" so thanks for the reply
Chris we are going to use WebEx as well
We've had remarkable success with WebEx, and it is a secure platform
We have used Zoom for the most part but have considered looking for something else with better security as I was in a meeting with another group that utilized a password and it was hacked while in the middle of the meeting with some very inappropriate things occurring.
meant sorry, that I just saw. yeah, my boss and the other facilitator sat in my bosses office (at a hospital) and set up a Zoom conversation at an offsite clinic who had experienced a difficult situation. The participants were able to sit in a conference room on the the other side.
thanks A-aron! and Kit!!! we are in the research phase for Support 1 for sure
the two facilitators were able to still ‘see’ their faces
I have used MS Teams for one-on-ones
nexus webmeet through Northbridge Technolgy Alliance is a not-for-profit offering a virtual web meeting platform for other not-for-profits. A few more helpful tools than Zoom and more secure.
Please check out www.compassionateintegrity.org —resilience training from trauma informed research and neuroscience data. It’s not a fluffy program—very user friendly—right now free weekly zoom meetings that later show up on this site as videos in the core training pieces. I am a facilitator for this program—20 hour course. It can be taught online—already was happening previously. Manuals in English and Spanish—the weekly session are not the course, but support for these times. Longtail of this pandemic—hope we can extend our program to support stressed systems. We partner with the Charter for Compassion. Connect with me if your agency, department wants more info in this support. email@example.com
Thank you, Dr. MItchell—so grateful for your expertise and straight up approach.
Empathic distress looks like you telling your story—versus the person having space, silence, a container—to access their own emotions and experience! Thank you, Dr. Mitchell for heading this idea off.
“I know how you feel”—NOPE! You don’t!
What do you mean by empathic distress with telling your story VS. the person having space, silence, etc. Why is it versus as opposed to both.
Didn’t mean to be cryptic in a way that was confusing. Often, in my experience, I go to telling my story when I am actually in “empathic distress”—meaning, I actually need to relieve my own suffering, above being there for others. It’s a tricky thing to be that self-aware. But watch it in others and all of us—when we can refrain from thinking we know what others are feeling we can open up space so we can be of benefit.
I did not mean never, nor is it black and white—but very, very often I watch myself and others talk too much in an effort to “help”. There is a joke amongst therapists: whoever talks the most gets the most therapy.
Compassion is from a grounded place of discernment and wisdom—requires empathy but there is a side road empathy can take where we become the center of the issue (compassion fatigue is used—but a misnomer)—neuroscience-wise—it’s super cool what they can see in brain activity when we are coming from stable, resilient places and offer support versus empathy distress where we are actually in our own fight/flight pattern.
Great presentation. Thank you.
Yes Great presentation, thank you for taking time to share this with us all.
Thank you for this presentation
I have thoroughly enjoyed the webinar presentation, Crisis Support in the time of a Pandemic.
Thank you very much indeed, Dr Mitchell for your incredibly w-holistic guidance. Thank you too to Ryan and all organisers who made this day possible. Stay safe and well all.
Zoom has new security functions this week: now automatically puts participants in a waiting room and also asks for a password. Improves security. Also, the group can be “locked” once the group is there. I have no relationship with Zoom—just seeing improvements and I use it all the time.
Dr. Mitchell, Mr. Skidmore, & Ryan:
Thank you all. Very helpful.
