Instructor: Silouan Green graduated from Vanderbilt University in 1991 and then accepted a commission in the United States Marine Corps. While serving in the Marines, Silouan was involved in a jet training accident. In the ejection, Silouan s back was broken and his co-pilot tragically killed. This horrible event and the complications that followed led to the development of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). He was disability discharged and had to learn to put his life back together. It began with a two-year motorcycle journey where he learned to live.

Silouan instructs on Responding to PTSD and Officers in Crisis, Overcoming Adversity, and Foundational Leadership. He teaches people to become leaders in all aspects of their lives and to use the trials and transitions we all face as fuel to live free and lead with purpose. He has taught around the country at places such as Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington D.C., Fort Campbell in Kentucky, and Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. He has trained thousands of police officers and first responders from hundreds of law enforcement agencies, as well as mental health professionals, private corporations, non-profit organizations and major universities. Silouan is a dynamic speaker. His presentations are focused on delivering solid information and practical tools for living and leading. He provides a broad perspective that officers find refreshing, educational, and inspirational.

Course Description: The course will focus on tactics, techniques and procedures when responding to a veteran or police officer that may be suffering from anxiety, depression or PTSD and will help to establish skills to assist in these special times. More and more veterans are coming home to our communities, and while many have a healthy transition, others face a myriad of difficulties from unemployment, depression, PTSD, and in some cases, destructive behavior such as domestic violence, suicide or other disturbances.

This training will benefit patrol officers, detectives, street supervisors, agency managers, crisis negotiators, CIT officers, CIT instructors, and police social workers.

Topics Covered:
  • Understanding the difficulties veterans face in the transition home
  • Understanding how PTSD develops and manifests itself in veterans
  • Effective techniques for communicating with PTSD subjects
  • How to defuse threatening situations with veterans
  • Why resilient officers respond better to veterans in distress
  • Creating a culture of resiliency in law enforcement
