Emotional Trauma Life Support (ETLS) Course
Emotional Trauma Life Support™, or ETLS™, is an intensive 2-day, 16-hour training course in emotional trauma- both trauma to the responder in the things seen and done in the field, as well as formal training in grief support and death notification for helping those whom they serve. ETLS™ is solidly evidence- and research-based, and set in a foundation of both psychological principles and real-world Fire/EMS experience. Its unique and intuitive approach is designed to seamlessly integrate into existing curriculum at all levels of training and to be as beneficial to the initial training programs as to the experienced emergency responder.
Expectations and Goals
ETLS™ is designed for two main purposes. The first is to equip the responder with the tools necessary to prevent long-term emotional and psychological damage to themselves and colleagues due to the job itself, to allow the responder to recognize normal, abnormal, and critical signs of damage, and to undergird the whole with a solid, practical understanding of the reasons behind the damage. The second purpose is to equip the responder with the necessary tools with which to intervene for good in the darkest seasons of other people’s lives- those calls surrounding death and dying, including the death notification process.
