About This Show
Military,Veterans,Police Officers,Fire Fighters. A place to share history and tell our stories. I've been involved in the emergency career field since I was 16. I was a volunteer firefighter, National Guard, and police officer. I was in Iraq and 9/11. I know from my experiences that I have some amazing stories. I thought that we needed a place as veterans and first responders to let ourselves vent and tell our stories. I will also be featuring organizations that assist first responders and veterans. I will also be bringing medical professionals on board to speak about new methods that are being used to cope with PTSD, anxiety, TBI etc. PTSD is a subject that needs to be discussed and brought out in the open. We as first responders and veterans do not need to be embarrassed to express or opinionate our views on PTSD. It's more appropriate to bring attention to the matter and focus on the positive and our futures.

Police Officers and Firefighters: Why Sleep Matters with Karen Lansing
Aug 10 15
I will be interviewing Karen about her book and a practice that she is dearly involved in. Karen practices EMDR also known as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. EMDR psychotherapy is an information processing therapy and uses an eight phase approach to address the experiential contributors of a wide range of pathologies. It attends to the past experiences that have set the groundwork for pathology, the current situations that trigger dysfunctional emotions, beliefs and sensations, and the positive experience needed to enhance future adaptive behaviors and mental health.
Karen is the author of "The Rite of Return: Coming Back from Duty-Induced PTSD"
Karen Lansing, LMFT, Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress has been described by one Northern Irish Police Commander as, “the grit that makes the pearl.” Her first police clients dubbed her their Cop Whisperer. Twice an American flag has flown over US bases within the Mid East in honor of her service to military assets.
