FEI Behavioral Health, a national crisis management, EAP and wellness company based in Milwaukee, will be presenting sessions at two upcoming conferences; the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA) 2013 Annual Conference, and the 2013 National Sports Safety and Security Conference presented by the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4).

The IACLEA 2013 Annual Conference runs June 28 through July 2 in Louisville, Ky. FEI Senior Director Terri Howard will present an educational workshop, “Helping the Helpers: A Guide to Strengthening Responder Resilience,” on Monday, July 1, at 1:30 p.m. EST. The session will outline what universities can do to support campus law enforcement so they can better prepare, respond, and recover from a crisis incident on campus. The session will review dynamics of self-care and examine best practices of a resiliency program targeted for campus law enforcement workers by presenting specific guidance on resiliency training that focuses beyond psychological debriefings for responders.

Howard is responsible for working with FEI corporate clients to ensure they are prepared for, can respond to and recover from a crisis incident. She also coordinates the people support and psychological first aid services for those impacted by crises, and she is responsible for developing drills and exercises aimed at testing current plans and procedures. Over the years, Howard has contributed to several international standards and guidelines on crisis management and workplace violence prevention, including ASIS and the FBI.

The 2013 National Sports Safety and Security Conference runs July 16-18 in Orlando, Fla. FEI Senior Director of Crisis Management Dr. Vivian Marinelli will present an information session, “Best Practices in Accounting for People During Crisis Events,” on Wednesday, July 17 at 10 a.m. EST. This presentation will discuss how having a comprehensive accounting-for-people plan will allow security personnel to focus on incident management and business recovery efforts. Participants will learn how a properly managed and executed family assistance plan can boost their organization’s public image and assist with the successful resolution of a crisis.

In addition to her workshop presentation, Dr. Marinelli will participate in a roundtable discussion on the topic of crisis communications during and immediately after a critical incident. This discussion will take place on Thursday, July 18 at Noon EST.

Dr. Vivian Marinelli consults with customers on behavioral health as well as emergency preparedness, crisis response, and family assistance issues. She is experienced in the development of curriculum and training of FEI affiliates to serve as Crisis Support Coordinators, and employees to act as Peer Support Facilitators. Marinelli has more than fifteen years’ experience in direct clinical services specializing in trauma and grief counseling, which focuses on assisting individuals involved in critical incidents.
