HUMAN RESILIENCE. RIC JORGE, A FIREMAN'S PERSPECTIVE

(Once we get the subs out of the system, we hope to be able to supply you with more information from Ric.)


Ric Jorge is a well known speaker, instructor and author in the First Responder community and a number of the lessons that he has learned transfer easily into the average person's world. A career firefighter, Jorge has made it a passion to spread the word on mental and physical health in the First responder community.



From an interview https://www.fireengineering.com/health-safety/why-i-teach-ric-jorge/#gref


"After being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), I sought out ways to get “better.” I was on a mission to be whole again.

Quite by accident, I discovered techniques that worked extremely well to keep my anxiety, intrusive thoughts, and sleeplessness in check. I developed these new techniques and refined them to benefit me further. I was now on a mission. I shamelessly stalked sports and military psychologists about these techniques. I hounded researchers about specific work they had done and even went so far as to visit neurologists just to talk to them about the way the brain works."
