Connecticut’s first responders were again faced with managing a tragic event. As a psychotherapist I am aware that the impact of responding to traumatic events increases stress in the lives of those who are committed to keeping our community safe. My gratitude for the services of the first responders is sincere, and I hope each member of the team takes the steps needed to ensure self-care.
