>Over the last few years, Dr. Friesen and his team developed and implemented the annual Optimal Psychological Performance Assessment (OPPA) for specialty units and dispatchers/communicators at the Niagara Regional Police Service (NRPS) as part of their larger Safeguarding program.
>The main goal is to help prevent stress-related injuries (e.g., Posttraumatic Stress Disorder—PTSD, burnout, etc.). Like elite athletes, First Responders need to be in top psychological, neuropsychological/cognitive, and physiological shape in order to perform at their potential. Thus, a second goal of the program is to identify decrements in optimal performance and functioning and help provide timely solutions.
>Psychological and neuropsychological assessments and treatments to individuals. Our neuropsychological treatments focus on neuromodulation (e.g., neurofeedback, CES, tDCS, and other cutting edge modalities).

Health methodologies
Neurofeedback, Educational Program, Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) Therapy, Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS)
Specify Methods

>Our program is designed to help First Responders identify psychological, neuropsychological, and physiological difficulties early (often before self-awareness) by using objective and evidence-based measurements.
>The OPPA is designed to be repeated every 6 to 12 months in order to track difficulties and functioning. This is valuable for detecting both positive and negative changes in psychological/emotional, behavioural, neuropsychological/cognitive, and psychophysiological functioning early to help ensure First Responders are performing and functioning optimally.
>Our psychological treatments are based on evidence-based approaches including biofeedback, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy/Training (ACT).
