For this Assignment please be sure you have listened to the NPR Podcast entitled Outsourcing Compassion: Debriefing Trauma Patients and read the two short articles from Regel and Lewis before completing the Assignment.

In a 300 – 500 word response, discuss why this may be and, address whether preventing an officer from developing PTSD should be the measure of success for a critical incident stress debriefing or if there should be other reasons to use it.
