    Could not believe it. I was standing in the emergency room watching doctors work tirelessly to save the life of a young boy; a boy I brought in after responding to an emergency call at his home. He went into cardiac arrest and the reason is unclear. He had no medical history of heart problems and no allergies. When I arrived at his home, he was lying on the floor and his lips were blue. His mother was begging him to wake up and telling him how much she loved him while his father was providing mouth to mouth resuscitation. I took over the resuscitation and we transported the boy and his parents to the hospital. Once I was there, I found myself unable to leave. I needed to find out if they boy survived. As I continued to watch the doctors, I saw one of them turn to his parents and shake his head “no.” The mother collapsed on the floor and the father burst into tears. How does a child die from a cardiac arrest? For the last week, I have been having nightmares. When I close my eyes I cannot stop seeing the boys face. I find myself crying alone and I do not want to go to work. Maybe I am not supposed to be an emergency medical technician.
    Example scenario
    What preventative measures could the emergency medical technician in this scenario have taken so he was less affected by the boy’s death? What kinds of training could his employer have facilitated to reduce the risk of vicarious trauma and to help this professional through the trauma?
    This week you explore debriefing models used in the aftermath of a traumatic situation as well as in the prevention of vicarious trauma. In addition, you explore prevention training for trauma-response helping professionals.
    Learning jectives
    By the end of this week, you should be able to:
    Analyze and apply training methods for trauma-response helping professionals
    Compare debriefing models
    Analyze the process of debriefing sessions
    Justify training for debriefing sessions in the prevention of vicarious trauma
    Training Methods
    Since the working conditions of most trauma-response helping professionals are intense and contribute to burnout, stress, and vicarious trauma, it is paramount to prepare and train trauma-response helping professionals on the possible consequences associated with their work (McCammon & Allison, 1995). Trauma-response helping professionals need to develop strong coping skills and utilize support systems in order to handle trauma work. For this Discussion, select an interview from the media carousel. Please select a different interview from one you have selected in previous weeks. Once again, reflect on the occupational stressors which can contribute to vicarious trauma for that particular trauma-response helping professional. Also, think of how you would train this individual to prepare them to engage in trauma work and to increase awareness of the risks of vicarious trauma.
    With these thoughts in mind:

    Debriefing
    Debriefing is the opportunity to process thoughts and feelings related to trauma work and traumatic events. There are a number of debriefing models and selecting the type of model is dependant upon the type of trauma work being implemented. For example, many health care organizations adopt the critical incident stress debriefing model (originated from the military) because it has been the most effective method for large organizations (Morrissette, 2004). Think of what type of debriefing model might be effective in your organization or practice.
    For this Assignment, you select two types of debriefing models and examine the effective elements of the models which aid to mitigate vicarious trauma.
    The assignment: (2–3 pages)
    Describe two types of debriefing models.
    Compare the similarities and differences of each model. Be specific.
    Explain how each debriefing model reviews the traumatic event, provides for emotional ventilation, and meets the intended outcome of the debriefing session.
    Select a training element you would add to a debriefing session to maximize the potential to prevent vicarious trauma. Justify your selection by using the Learning Resources and current literature. Be specific.
    Support your Assignment with specific references to all resources used in its preparation. You are asked to provide a reference list only for those resources not included in the Learning Resources for this course.
