Developing Culturally Competent Counselors in the World of First Responders.

First responders pose unique challenges in the counseling office. However, working with this population can be extremely rewarding as the counselor helps those who help others. Learn how to relate, communicate, identify issues, and treat effectively when working with first responders. Develop an understanding of the cultural differences, learn how to work through them, and experience a feeling of success as you see your first responder clients grow, change, and heal.

Mentorship Matters


Effective mentorship provides aspects of both psychosocial and career support, and may include role modeling, advising, sponsorship, and helping mentees develop a supportive network of other mentors and peers. Effective mentorship requires self-reflection, setting expectations, building trust, and regular review.
