About Shifting Perspectives
Specialized Training Institute
The goal of Shifting Perspectives is to provide specialized and unique trainings to the public, counselors and social workers, members of the community and other professionals. We take pride in our trainings as being different from any others. For example since 2016 we have offered Therapists who treat First Responders and MUST understand how to interact, identify and provide the care these groups of public service professionals. In collaboration with our First Responder Training Team, these trainings are powerful and riveting often hailed as "Life Changing" for the individuals attending. We have a Training Program "RISE~N~FLOW" which teaches HOLISTIC modalities to First Responders.
We offer specialized holistic trainings to Counselors and Social Workers, providing certifications as "Holistic Counselor" "Holistic Trauma Professionals" paving the way for integrating holistic modalities into otherwise regular psychotherapy.
Specialized Services and Programs
Allies For First Responders
Allies For First Responders Specialized Services and Programs are managed in collaboration with Odyssey Counseling. The program focuses on developing and administering training for mental health professionals, counselors, social workers, holistic practitioners, chaplains, peer support volunteers, dispatchers, medical personnel and paraprofessional counselors. In addition, services are provided by professionals and a peer support team trained to work with and who understand these cultures.
Behind The Badge New Mexico
Behind the Badge New Mexico (BTBNM) is a nonprofit focused on raising money to help first responders and their families receive counseling and ancillary services such as meditation classes. These services are critical due to the acute stress and trauma first responders may experience as a result of their jobs. BTBNM pays co-pays and other costs for treatment for any first responder or their family, regardless of what department they work for or status of employment.
Through BTBNM first responders and their families can access Peer Support Volunteers who are willing to talk and assist when needed.
