I have been asked to peer review the West Coast Post-Trauma Retreat in San Rafael California. firefighterveteran.com will be in session with them from Sunday February 15th until the following Friday. We have added them to the front page of our web site and have posted on our links page some comments.
The vital critical message here is that it is the only center of it's kind dealing with firefighters, law enforcement and ems as well as military veterans who have a need to be debriefed from their experiences in a safe confidential setting.
This type of "retreat" is not for everyone nor is it for the faint of heart. This program demands that you be present in your authentic wounding and deal with the emotional fallout and backpressures that have wounded your inner basement where stress smoulders and has flashed over.
I highly encourage any first responder to get connected to their web site and read up on them.
Another tool in the tool box and not a fool looking for a tool in the tool box....so....too add to that....
I will be sharing some of my observations on the center and what I have observed in later postings.......
