FALLBROOK – For those who struggle to find the right words to say at a time of crisis, Woman of Wellness is pleased to welcome Sher DeWeese, executive director of Trauma Intervention Programs, at its next event Thursday, Nov. 7, at the Fallbrook Library, 124 S. Mission Road.

DeWeese will present “Emotional First Aid Skills” to help attendees know the appropriate way to interact with those who have recently experienced a trauma. TIP works with the police, fire and sheriff’s departments, who call them when they go to the scene of a trauma.

TIP volunteers give emotional and practical support to the families involved in a tragedy. Trauma Intervention Programs will be offering a training, which is referred to as an academy, in Fallbrook in early 2020 for those who have an interest in becoming a TIP volunteer.

Fallbrook Regional Health District invites men and women to join it at Woman of Wellness each first Thursday of the month. A social time begins at 6 p.m., followed by the presentation at 6:30 p.m. The free event ends with refreshments. Donations of non-perishable food items are collected for the Fallbrook Food Pantry.

Submitted by Fallbrook Regional Health District.
