K9 First Responders’ job is not to provide therapy or mental health counseling. Our goal is to be a “bridge” to additional assistance. Whether that be mental health response teams yet to arrive or someone wanting to speak to a mental health specialist.
Our teams employ the concept “Getting back to even…” This approach assists a person to a “place” where he/she is less stressed. Increases the ability for one to process emotions and information. Provides a sense of increased stability.
What exactly is “Getting back to even…”? An approach to help re-establish emotional and cognitive equilibrium to a person impacted by psychological trauma.
