Imagine shifting the incident response model of mental health into a pre-incident education model. This ground-breaking book examines how the culture among Warrior Servants can shift towards prioritizing their physical health, mental health, relationships, and normalizing the emotional impacts of the job.
The principles and applications of Living Ideation fit well with the men and women who serve our communities. Dr. Nicholas provides consultations and trainings for Warrior Servant populations that include: wildland and structure fire, law enforcement, EMS, emergency dispatch, and military.
