For first responders, stress and trauma are part of the job. But that doesn’t mean they have to let the chaos be part of their everyday lives.

First responders – law enforcement, firefighters, emergency medical professionals, military personnel, and more – spend each day confronting stress and trauma head-on. Rarely is there time to process and recover from the turmoil and violence they encounter day after day. It doesn’t help that first responder culture encourages a “get on with it” attitude, offering limited resources for the internal struggle that builds up over time.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

Tactical Brain Training offers a solution for first responders to use their incredible emergency management skills to recover from the rigors of this demanding work. Developed by Gina Rollo White, a therapeutic mindfulness expert with over 10 years in the first responder world, this first-of-its-kind guidebook provides proven, sustainable strategies for regulating stress and trauma in real time and following the emergent event. Whether you are a first responder yourself, a clinician supporting someone in this profession, or a family member, this book will empower you to:

  • Connect with real-life stories that showcase the types of challenges faced by first responders
  • Learn scientific insights behind the long-term impacts of stress, trauma, and mindfulness
  • Practice short, effective brain exercises, both written and in guided videos, that build mental clarity and put you in the driver’s seat of how you respond
  • Develop a personalized mindfulness action plan for neutralizing stress and bringing your brain back “online”

Although running toward chaos may be part of the job, living in a state of internal chaos does not have to continue to be the norm.
