Psychology of First Responders Addressed

Mental health providers often work in the field providing direct support to first responders in a crisis situation, so understanding the psychology of first responders and adapting to situational demands is important. Northern Michigan University alumna Kammie R. Juzwin (BS ‘82) will address this topic at the next NMU Psychological Science Colloquium at 3 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15 in West Science room 2904.

Juzwin will share some of her experiences working with uniformed first responders and discuss how mental health providers' support encompasses more than traditional therapy.

Juzwin is a licensed clinical psychologist in Illinois, has her professional certification in police psychology and holds a diploma from the Society for Police & Criminal Psychology.
