    Becoming a paramedic can be done via college or technical schools and can range from 6 months to two years. But what about those courses that offer paramedic training online?

    Jesse Birkey - Miracle Ministering Paramedic, Author, and DeadRaiser DVD Star

    in Christianity

    Jesse grew up in a Christian home.  His father was a Mennonite Pastor and Mother a nurse.  He grew up with the knowledge of God but denied the power of God to change his life.  This led to a desperate search for worth, which brought hardship as he embraced the comforts of the world.  He completed college at Hesston Mennonite with an associate's degree in business.  At 21 Jesse had been hired as a firefighter/paramedic, married Kara and bought their first house together.  A year later their son was born followed by their daughter two years after that.  Jesse was 26 when the power of God's love finally broke through his hard heart.  Everything in his life began to change as he pursued God with passion and zeal.  God began to direct Jesse through seasons of spiritual change, bringing encouragement and correction as He sought to mature him in the things of His heart.  Jesse began to recognize that God wanted to be a part of his work life and began to see miracles as he ministered the love of God in the back of his ambulance ranging from the dead raised to self-hate being destroyed as the perfect love of God washed through.  God began to show him that God wants to use ordinary people in extraordinary ways.  It was Jesse's passion for others to know this, and the testimonies God had built in and through him, that led him to write Life Resurrected, Extraordinary Miracles through Ordinary People.  Jesse's passion is to be like Jesus and continues to minister as led daily.

    Karen Lansing, MFT, BCET From the UK to the US Combating PTSD

    in Education

    "Karen Lansing, MFT, BCET, Diplomate, The American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress, Specialist for the treatment of Duty Induced PTSD, Tactical Psych Advisor, Lecturer, Trainer."


     


    On Monday mornings until further notice at 11AM EST I will be interviewing Karen about her book and a practice that she is dearly involved in. Karen practices EMDR also known as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. EMDR psychotherapy is an information processing therapy and uses an eight phase approach to address the experiential contributors of a wide range of pathologies. It attends to the past experiences that have set the groundwork for pathology, the current situations that trigger dysfunctional emotions, beliefs and sensations, and the positive experience needed to enhance future adaptive behaviors and mental health.


     


    Karen is the author of "The Rite of Return: Coming Back from Duty-Induced PTSD"


     


    Karen Lansing, LMFT, Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress has been described by one Northern Irish Police Commander as, “the grit that makes the pearl.” Her first police clients dubbed her their Cop Whisperer. Twice an American flag has flown over US bases within the Mid East in honor of her service to military assets. A Diplomate of the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress, she’s a unique combination of clinical, weapons and tactical skills wrapped up in one package. Together with a courageous paramedic, six police officers and Dr. Daniel Amen, Karen conducted the first SPECT brain image studies on duty-induced PTSD. These images taken before and after treatment have brought to light that PTSD is visible like most injuries.

    EMS Compassion Or Criminal Conduct?

    in Education

    Recent two FDNY EMS Paramedics have been accused with faking an ambyulance call report after some confusion with a DNR. We all know that the Call Report is a legal document. But did these medics act on compassion based on the patients and family wishes? Or did they make such a grave error as to cost them their jobs and even jail time?


    Join us for a special live show and give your thoughts on the topic.


    Here is a link to the article in the Staten Island Advance. It should get your juices flowing for sure.
