Event description

Description

The ANZAPPL NSW Committee are delighted to host an evening on 25th July 2018 at 6:30pm on the topic of:

First responders and the consequences of exposure to trauma-what can be done in response and does it work?

We are privileged to have three distinguished speakers who will deliver individual talks and facilitate a joint Q & A session on this topic. Discussions will cover areas such as techniques designed to collect and preserve eyewitness evidence in the immediate aftermath of an incident, what (if anything) employers can do to protect the mental health of their workforce and relevance to civil litigation, stress and obstacles faced by first responders in the litigation process, in particular Police officers.

Dr Helen Paterson

Dr. Helen Paterson is a Senior Lecturer in Forensic Psychology at the University of Sydney. She is an expert in the application of social and cognitive psychology to legal settings. In particular, her research focuses on best practice techniques to collect accurate and complete accounts from eyewitnesses and victims of crime.

A/Professor Sam Harvey

A/Prof Harvey is the Chief Psychiatrist at the Black Dog Institute. In addition to running the Institute’s clinical services, he leads a program of research focused on the mental health of first responders.

His principal source of work as a barrister has been the various agencies of the New South Wales Government, including (and relevantly) the New South Wales Police Force. More recently, he has appeared for the New South Wales police officers seeking compensation for psychiatric injury and at Coronial Inquests investigating the deaths by suicide of two New South Wales police officers.
