Triad Forensics is very much involved in a project to bring more awareness and education to others about the emotional and mental toll that Forensic/ Crime Scene Investigation work takes on the Forensic Practitioner. This lecture was developed based on personal experiences that Triad Forensics owner Doug Young experienced and ultimately had to endure prior to and after being diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Not only is this lecture designed to educate participants but to stimulate discussion regarding peer support groups, debriefing, cumulative vicarious stress and other topics. This presentation can be done as a lecture (2 hours) or a workshop (4 hours)
