Post Critical Incident Seminar (PCIS) – Administrator Level – Rochester, NY

NY Sheriffs Association

After the overwhelming success of the ‘first ever’ Post Critical Incident Seminar (PCIS) for administrative level personnel, NYSSA’s Health and Wellness Program is proud to announce the delivery of the second Post Critical Incident Seminar. This FREE seminar, funded by FirstNet – Built with AT&T, is being delivered through our Health & Wellness partner, the New York Law Enforcement Assistance Program (NYLEAP) to assist First Responder Administrators.

Who should attend?

Administrators (rank of Lieutenant or above) that have been involved in on-duty critical incidents, suffer from cumulative career stress, or have been exposed to traumatic life events unrelated to their law enforcement career, and has had their life adversely affected as a result. Spouses/significant others are strongly encouraged to attend.

This is an Administrator Peer-based program, where peer-to-peer assistance will be accompanied by clinical staff, to assist the attendees in finding healthy ways to cope with stress and manage PTSD. All Peers will be active or retired members who have achieved the rank of Lieutenant or above. This seminar will also be invaluable for administrators to improve their response to deputies, corrections officers and emergency communication personnel involved in critical incidents.
