Webinar/Audio Conference FAQs

Learn tactical decision-making to best prepare should an active shooter event ever occur at your practice. While there are plenty of resources that address run/hide/fight or provide similar guidance for how to react in an active shooting situation, you also need to be mentally prepared to act in the face of a crisis. Most of us are unprepared and have no idea how we will feel when confronting violence. This could place us at risk of mentally freezing, leaving us disarmed and unable to help ourselves or others.

This program will explore the anatomy of fear and review the way the human body experiences an extreme fear situation with the goal of helping you to anticipate the body's physical response to danger. Using first-hand examples of an active shooting on audio recordings, the presenters will teach you how to unfreeze mentally and physically so that you are able to think clearly, make informed decisions and get yourself to safety. These experts will demonstrate that preparing mentally in advance will improve your muscle memory and your ability to survive. This session will equip you with strategies for improving your response, address trauma first aid available in your office, and identify what you can do to help others once you have reached a safe location.

This 90 minute webinar is designed to benefit anyone working in an outpatient healthcare setting or office environment that interacts with the public and patients. Attend this session for guidance on what to expect in an extreme panic situation. Learn valuable techniques that you can use to become more comfortable in the event your safe and controlled environment is suddenly threatened.
