November 13 – Technical Meeting- Canine Support in Critical Incident Stress Management

Please join us November 13 from 6pm-8pm as the Crisis Response Canines present on Canine Support in Critical Incident Stress Management. We will enjoy the presentation at the Lake Community Branch, Stark County Library beginning at 6pm. Following the meeting we will enjoy pizza and conversation.

Crisis Response Canines (CRC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization comprised of certified K9 teams throughout the United States who have dedicated thousands of hours comforting those impacted by personal or community crisis events. Our highly trained K9 teams are experienced in psychological first aid and certified to work effectively in crisis environments supporting anyone affected by mass shootings, large-scale accidents, violence, abuse, tragic death, suicides, terrorism, natural disasters (fire, flood, hurricane, etc.) and more.

Shirley Graziano is the CRC Team Lead of the Ohio Chapter of Crisis Response Canines. Shirley spent several years working with law enforcement and observed firsthand the impact of traumatic events and cumulative effects of events on her law enforcement family. Shirley learned of Crisis Response Canines and began to research the positive influence of the CRC canines and handlers interactions with first responders and communities. It was then that she committed to CRC’s program of rigorous training and advanced certifications.
