Responder Peer-to-Peer Resilience Training

The goal of this program is to prepare emergency response personnel to foster resilience in their peers prior to a critical event or disaster. It is designed to be delivered before an event to build resilience and support within their organizations. Review a June 4, 2018 webinar about the Peer-to-Peer Resiliency Curriculum (below).

The curriculum is segmented into nine modules addressing critical skills that can increase personal resiliency. The tenth module prepares peers to return to their work setting and share these skills with other responders.

Building Resilience

In a partnership with the University of Nebraska Public Policy Center and the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, the ‘Building Resilience’ training aims to prepare personnel to foster resilience in themselves and their peers prior to a critical event, emergency, or disaster. Part I reviews the basics of resilience, Part II presents several coping tools associated with enhancing resilience or reducing stress, and Part III focuses on important aspects of helping others.

‘Building Resilience’ is based on the peer-to-peer model.
