The Resilient Heroes Project

Think of it as emotional armor

PTSD is an injury that can now heal just as quickly as it happens. Our approach works. We are seeing results daily among veterans, first responders, and other trauma survivors.

PTSD Affects Millions of Americans

Our Programs Can Heal People In As Few As 1-4 Sessions

There is a better way to manage negative emotions associated with their duties and service, and even clear the emotions attached to a hardcore traumatic event. What’s more, you can learn this process in only three days. Our latest research has shown more than half of program participants recover after only one session with others experiencing recovery within one to four sessions. See more testimonials and research below.

It was interesting being the client and not the therapist for a change. when Dan ran me through Emotions Management Process (EMP) , I remember doing a scan over a lot of things I had previously processed, it helped provide more clarity. It released emotions I didn’t know were there. As I was responding to work calls, checking emails, and sitting in zoom meetings that should’ve been an email, I reflexively wanted to be angry. It’s effortless in those situations, at least it used to be. Sitting in that moment I wanted instinctually wanted to be angry and I thought pleasant thoughts. Instead of accepting the thought that I should’ve been angry, my brain chose to be happy instead. I was able to feel content in a very very very long time. Thanks, Dan I owe you…..

Veterans with PTSD

With veterans their combat experiences may often compound on each other. That’s a no-brainer. However, we are finding many have high Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) as well.  Or an even more disturbing trend is something called Military Sexual Trauma (MST) when a member of the ranks does the unthinkable to one of their own. 

Among Veterans who use VA health care, about: 23 out of 100 women (or 23%) reported sexual assault when in the military.


Operation Iraqi Freedom & Enduring Freedom

About 11-20 out of every 100 Veterans who served in OIF or OEF have PTSD in a given year.


Vietnam War

About 15 out of every 100 Vietnam Veterans were currently diagnosed with PTSD at the time of the most recent study in the late 1980s, the National Vietnam Veterans Readjustment Study (NVVRS). It is estimated that about 30 out of every 100 (or 30%) of Vietnam Veterans have had PTSD in their lifetime.


Gulf War

About 12 out of every 100 Gulf War Veterans have PTSD in a given year.

No Stress, Non-Invasive Approach

Patients Recover Without Reliving or Re-telling Trauma

New research shows just how wrong we’ve been about PTSD. It’s not psychological; it is neurological. The brain gets hijacked because it fuses an emotion with an image or series of images. The emotion and image remain in the amygdala or the fight or flight part of the brain for ready and easy access. Intrusive thoughts, when we don’t want them, they sneak in our thoughts. Triggers occur when we pass by an intersection of a case we worked a decade ago and now seems like yesterday. A nightmare happens because the brain is trying to process it but can’t.  PTSD is an injury that can now heal just as quickly as it is inflicted.

This Program Will Build Resiliency In Your Ranks

I’ve been a Deputy Sheriff for 23 years. During that time I’ve experienced traumas in the field and had to deal with negative emotions like survivors guilt. I also have battled with depression and a lot of negative self talk. This June I took part in the Tactical Resiliency Process (TRP) and the Emotions Management Process (EMP) training. I wanted to be able to help those in need find peace in their lives.

During part of the training I took part in the process as the recipient of the (TRP) coaching. I was able to work through the on duty death of a friend whom I witnessed. After completing the process I feel a considerable weight has lifted from me. In the days after the training I have noticed that my sleep cycles leave me more rested and my mind doesn’t seem to race at night like it used to.

I also benefited from the Emotions Management Process (EMP) . I processed negative emotions of worthlessness and fear that had followed me from my childhood. I was able to make the connections to the present day from my childhood and clear the stigma that I wasn’t able to before.

Dan and Dr. Royster along with Ms. Harris put on an outstanding class. Never have I left a training class feeling so empowered to help others. This training would benefit so many veteran advocates, first responders and health care professionals.

First Responders & Trauma

We lose more first responders to suicide than to line of duty deaths each year. If there is even a remote possibility to prevent this, isn’t it worth exploring?

Most first responder agencies have some sort of peer support available to those experiencing a critical incident in the workplace. Maybe you investigated a double homicide, or worked a traffic fatality, or had to give the next of kin notification of a death, or perhaps a line of duty officer-involved shooting, or investigated a horrific suicide or a sudden infant death. Maybe you lost a 6-year-old in the back of your ambulance running emergency response to the hospital. I could go on and on, but you get my point.

Emotional tolls on our police, fire, emergency medical services and hospital staff are beyond normal capacities. We develop coping skills that can bleed over into our personal lives. Maybe it starts with a few shots of bourbon to take the edge off and a few more to sleep. Our relationships with our significant others, families, and children can start to take its toll.

We then can start shifting into disciplinary problems at work; you get angry for no apparent reason.  We have sworn to protect our communities and can become insensitive with those we protect.  Or maybe you start slacking at work because you don’t want to write another stupid report. Sound familiar?

Here is a real problem—egos of a profession.  We are alpha males and alpha females, and we work hard to portray ourselves as protectors.  There is nothing to see here; I’m good!  The rank and file are afraid to ask for help because we know what the consensus is with PTSD.  We perceive it as a weakness because we stigmatized the term.  It is why we lose more first responders every year to suicide compared to the line of duty deaths. 

Only 3 Days To Master the Process

We have two distinct processes, the Tactical Resiliency Process (TRP) for trauma and the Emotions Management Process (EMP) for negative emotions and self-limiting belief structures. We train men and women in the active-duty military, first responders, emergency medical personnel, National Guard units, military reserves, veterans, and medical personnel.

They learn skills that they will use immediately to build the resiliency skills necessary to bounce back from trauma and significant emotional events and coach others through the same process. The training requires the members to go through the Tactical Resiliency Process (TRP) and Emotions Management Process (EMP), working on their own emotions and traumas. The TRP and EMP processes use zero content from the person’s events. Let us train your organization to build ready and resilient minds.
