Understand Your Responses During Anxiety Producing Situations
Green Cross Academy of Traumatology states, “Another essential element of trauma work is the ability to maintain a non-anxious presence in crisis situations.” This requires that deployed individuals have the ability to self-reflect and understand their own emotional propensities during anxiety producing and stressful situations. Deployed individuals need to have the ability to cope with stress and anxiety in order to maintain an appropriate anxiety level that allows them to utilize their experience, training and skills when addressing the needs of those in crisis and affected by traumatic events. Deployed individuals need to understand what services are available to them to assist them with coping and be able to utilize these services in order to best serve those in crisis.
