WELCOME Welcome to Spokane! As Mayor of Spokane, I am pleased to extend a warm welcome to the attendees of the TEAM-Conference for first responders and mental health professionals. It is our honor to host this collaborative conference and to discuss how to better assist those in our community with mental illness, chemical dependency, and other issues. First responders are an invaluable part of this and every community. In Spokane, our goal is to be the safest city of our size by continually bettering our police, fire, and other responding departments. When a police call involves a person with a mental illness or disability, training officers to engage in a safe and effective manner becomes paramount. All Spokane Police Department officers receive at least 40 hours of training on how to interact with those who may be experiencing mental illness or other issues. Also, 14 of our officers recently attended the inaugural Enhanced Crisis Intervention Team training. This is the first training of its kind, developed with research provided by Washington State University. These officers received an additional 64 hours of training in crisis communication skills. In addition, the City of Spokane Fire Department added a psychologist to its staff in 2014 and developed its own training plan in order to better serve our community’s mentally ill citizens. The department also participates in the County Mental Health Committee and has developed Alternative Response Units, which handle non-emergency calls while keeping other resources available for other more serious needs. Together, our police and fire departments collaborate on the Hotspotters program, which gets those who most chronically cycle through public services the help and supervision they need to get back on their feet. The pilot program has saved $60,000 per person annually while greatly improving the quality of life for those in need. Spokane is home to world-class conference facilities and offers superior hospitality and personal services to ensure that your conference will be productive and memorable. We are proud to be able to share with you our beautiful and historic Lilac City. Thank you for all that you do to make your community safer for everyone. Please call upon us if we can do anything to make your stay in Spokane more enjoyable. Sincerely, David A. Condon Mayor

SESSION DESCRIPTIONS Tuesday, July 26 Plenary: Impact of Trauma on First Responders This opening presentation sets the stage for the conference by examining trauma, its impact on first responders, mental health professionals and medical providers, and how it relates to the 7 Domains of Trauma-Informed Care. Panel Discussion: Impact of Trauma Learn how trauma impacts each individual differently as panelists share their personal stories. You’ll hear how the culture of poverty inflicts trauma, how firefighters and law enforcement officers manage trauma from everyday interactions, and how one mother supports her son who has a mental illness. Executive Track: Organizational Structure of Trauma-Informed Care Increasingly, behavioral healthcare providers and other first responders are integrating Trauma-Informed Care principles into their treatment and response plans because research shows that 51 percent of the general population and 90 percent of those served by the public mental health system have experienced trauma. This class will review the National Council of Behavioral Health’s recommended 7 Domains of Trauma-Informed Care and show you how to integrate TIC into your organization’s culture and practices. Kaiser Study and Adverse Childhood Experiences Much of what is known today about the correlation between childhood trauma and later-life health is the result of a groundbreaking study on Adverse Childhood Experiences conducted in the 1990s by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Kaiser Permanente. This class will provide participants with an overview of the study’s key findings. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in Veterans This class will focus on trauma related to veterans and the stressors of deployment, combat, war and readjustment. The speaker will provide an overview of PTSD symptoms that may impact interactions with law enforcement, first responders and mental health professionals, and techniques that may be effective to de-escalate veterans in crisis. Managing Vicarious Trauma for First Responders First responders and mental health professionals are frequently impacted by vicarious trauma—the emotional residue that comes from hearing about and witnessing the trauma of others. This class will explore the influence it has on first responders by reviewing case studies from
numerous high-profile events and lessons learned from the organizations that managed the consequences following those events. Traumatic Stress Reaction in Law Enforcement: From Identification to Prevention and Treatment Learn how to identify the full range of responses to trauma from maladaptive coping to growth, and develop an understanding of how an agency’s response to a crisis can impact the law enforcement officer’s adjustment to traumatic experience. Trauma of an Officer-Involved Shooting This will be a multifaceted approach to show participants the events leading up to and after an officer-involved shooting and how the event can cause trauma to the officer and the agency. The presenters will use audio, body-worn camera video, and firsthand accounts of an officer-involved shooting. Plenary: Impact of Previous Trauma This session will examine the findings from a study in which 218 police officers involved in line-of-duty shootings were interviewed about the physical, emotional, psychological and perceptual reactions they experienced during those events. The presentation will discuss the reactions these officers experienced and address how knowledge of such reactions can frame our understanding of and response to officer-involved shootings.
SESSION DESCRIPTIONS Panel Discussion: Seeing Beyond the Broken Record—A Collaborative Response to Trauma Participants will explore behavior, perceptions and responses to trauma from behavioral health, law enforcement and emergency response perspectives, and learn how to build community partnerships and a traumainformed response.

Panelists will discuss how to build and maintain resiliency within the first responder community and at the organizational level, and deal with the stigma of traumarelated injuries and maladaptive coping mechanisms. Executive Track: Research on Resiliency Learn about current research on resiliency in the first responder community and what we can learn from other occupations. This session will provide executives with an understanding of what steps they can take to build resilience within their organizations and at the individual level.

This session will focus on the effects of trauma and provide strategies to promote resiliency so first responders maintain compassion, idealism, control and purpose. Diversity and Resilience in American Indians/Alaska Natives Learn about diversity within the American Indian/Alaska Native patient population. Understand strategies to promote resilience and better patient outcomes in American Indians/Alaska Natives.

Resiliency of An Individual and the Responding Officer This is a unique partnership between an individual in recovery and a police officer. Steve Einhaus and Lt. Bart Stevens have presented together for the past several years in an effort to provide insight into mental health and crisis situations, recovery, and resiliency. Steve begins by sharing elements of his life story during a psychotic episode and takes the audience through the ups and downs of his journey to where he is today. Lt. Stevens shares his experience as the responding officer who first encountered Steve during one of his psychotic breaks. Both reflect personal perspectives from that day that undoubtedly changed the course of their lives.
SESSION DESCRIPTIONS Resiliency in the Moment First responders will review case studies integrated with new information on how the human brain (neurology) and body (physiology) changes when stressed.
