Most folk will know that I have been heavily involved in dealing with trauma. I was asked to do at Podcast for Basics Scotland. It was not easy but I hope you may get something out of it.
David “Heavy” Whalley with his plethora of civilian and military search and rescue experience chats us through the effects events such as the Lockerbie disaster has had on him. He discusses the culture and attitude change to the effects these incidents have on the responder, what to look for and how to create healthy coping systems and networks.
Key points from this podcast:
- Look after your team and know and look out for the signs that things are not going so well
- Its good to talk, never be ashamed to talk.
- Look after your families
