FREE WEBINAR - Before the Trauma: Mindful Resiliency Training for First Responders

Tuesday, September 19 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. ET

Join Constable Jon Carson from York Regional Police in a discussion with Dr. Geoff Soloway on:

  • Why 'training before the trauma' is critical for first responders
  • How mindfulness supports first responders from police and fire to EMT, rescue and 911
  • How Constable Carson is implementing mindfulness training at York Regional Police

One person from each organization that attends the webinar will be invited to take MWU's 30 Day Mindfulness Challenge for free. The evidence-based online training takes just five minutes a day and is proven to increase resilience, well-being and performance.  The Challenge has been delivered to hundreds of first responders across the country who reported significant changes in stress, self-care and focus.  The results can be found in MWU's First Responder Feasibility Study.

If you can't attend the live broadcast, register anyway and we'll send you the recording as soon as it's available.




Jon Carson is a Constable with York Regional Police, assigned to the training and academics unit.  He is currently assigned to handle the delivery of Crisis Intervention Training, communications, recruit training and the coach officer course.   He recently has begun the process of implementing Mindfulness Based Resiliency Training within his organization, with the motto “Train before the Trauma”.

Coming from his own experience with PTSD in 2009, Jon Carson experimented with a number of different treatments. It was not until 2014 when he suffered a bad accident and concussion that he found meditation.
