Providers: Sensitive Care for Trauma Survivors

Providers: Sensitive Care for Trauma Survivors

Are you seeing patients with unresolved pain and dysfunction? Many physical complaints and problems originate from non-physical sources. To resolve pathology, we must attend to physical pain, dysfunction, and symptoms while we also recognize and attend to the non-physical contributors.

Patients are more satisfied and their healing more successful when the concepts presented in this course are present. This is an opportunity to refresh and reconsider the scope and impact of sensitive care for all patients.

I am happy to provide instruction at your location. Please contact me at Bonnie@4x4Healing.com to arrange on-site workshops and seminars.

Firearms Training: What You Will Need

You will need to bring your own:

  • Paper/pen for notes if you wish
  • Water bottle with lid

For all Firearms Courses, also bring your own:

  • Eye protection – glasses or safety goggles
  • Hearing protection (consider Amazon or another source – electronic ear protection is very beneficial so here are a couple of suggestions with non-electric options also:
  • Electronic “ears” are very effective protection and still allow you to hear firing line commands and be aware of your surroundings. Here are some links that may help: https://www.amazon.com/Howard-Leight-Amplification-Electronic-R-01902/dp/B007BGSI5U/. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07Y57R5K8/ If you do not want to invest in electronic ear protection, these non-electronic earplugs are good and comfortable (I keep them with me in a purse or pocket for noisy movies, concerts, church, etc. but for shooting, it would be good to add non-electronic ear muffs over the plugs: https://www.amazon.com/SureFire-Defenders-filtered-Earplugs-reusable/dp/B004DH65RI/
  • Your pistol – There is no charge if you need information in choosing the pistol, holster or accessories that would be best for your use and comfort, so please contact me for assistance.
  • 200 rounds of ammunition for your pistol – Due to group safety and qualification needs, we require only commercially manufactured ammunition for the course.
  • Please bring an appropriate holster for your gun. Whether you will be carrying your pistol in a special conceal-carry purse, waistband holsters, or belt and holster, it is best to practice with what you will use to defend yourself if necessary. This link may help get you started with the variety of holsters available: https://www.amazon.com/Concealed-Carry-Purse-Genuine-Right-hand/dp/B00GVPZQVG. There are many other quality accessories available and we’d be happy to discuss the options with you.
