Walking into a location and seeing the cruelty that someone has inflicted on another living being can have an effect like no other. Whether it is domestic violence, child abuse, elder abuse or animal cruelty, not only is the scene itself going to be disturbing and traumatic, but the sight can cause long-term and lasting effects on a responder. This course teaches how to mentally prepare for the scene, how to approach the viewing of the scene, and what after-effects could occur, how to prevent or mitigate those, and how to best try to heal from the experience.
