Crisis Etiquette

Bubba Wilson discusses Crisis Behavior or Crisis Etiquette live from the Memorial Hermann Sports Medicine Update. He has been leading D6 in ATsCare since its inception and has learned a lot over the years.

Crisis Behavior, Bubba Wilson

Discussion topics: 

Did crisis management help you be prepared for being inducted into the SWATA Hall of Fame?

AT Cares drove me there.

CCISM credential:

Certified Critical Incident Stress Management – Level 1 deals with individuals in crisis, the majority of AT Cares population. Level 2 deals with groups in crisis. 

Began Crisis Management training in 2019. 

AT’s managing grief:

Grief comes in at a later time, ATs have to finish the game/event after a critical injury/event.

AT Cares reaches out once notified to ensure assistance is provided where needed

NATA Gather Program Integration:

Young professionals can use NATA’s gather program to find mentors. 

Crisis on campus – what is the best method to find that definite grief to counsel them?

Don’t counsel them. Listen. Refer out. 

Soapbox Warning – What is step 1 in managing the secondary loss of loved ones?

Have affairs in order. Have a will, have life insurance. Have your burial wishes written down. Have the conversation. Have a list of your account usernames and passwords. Know how many death certificates you may need. Legal Zoom is a good resource. Make sure you constantly update your affairs. The primary loss will be exacerbated if we don’t handle our affairs. 

Currently working on a presentation with AT Cares members regarding their experiences with loss and what they’ve learned along the way.

Thanks, Sydney Hayes for creating the Crisis Behavior show notes

Shoulder Anatomy – 489

Are you a Shoulder Anatomy expert?

I am not a Shoulder Anatomy expert.  I know there are things I can still earn and use to help me understand, evaluate and rehab the shoulder.  When I do not know an answer or notice a consistent weakness I normally head towards gaining understanding.

Fortunately I have some friends and colleagues that can help me gain understanding.

Bubba has 3 shoulder surgeries under his belt and needs a fourth.

Marcus Knox, a Physical Therapist for Houston Methodist, joins the podcast for the first time.

What is this podcast about?

Always improving the profession of athletic training…but if you are this far into it you probably mean this specific one.

Here we are focusing on shoulder anatomy to review, identify some tips and discuss some unusual anatomy findings of the shoulder.

Need some resources?

Eating Disorders in Athletic Training – 424

Courage – the ability to do something that frightens you

Catherine Lawrence has an eating disorder.  She asked me to do a podcast about the subject.  She shares her story about lying, purging, passing out, going to rehab, relapsing, and the constant struggle with not demonizing food.

Getting behind the mic, on camera and sharing your story takes courage.  in the video she can be seen shaking because of the fear.  But she continues to tell her story.

We are joined by experts Dr. Carrie McAdams and Jennifer Nagel.

That One Parent – Helicopters with Owen Iseminger – 420

Helicopter parents area parents who take an overprotective or excessive interest in the life of their child or children according to

Owen Iseminger works with more affluent students and parents who tend to be in this group more often.  Through 8 years in this setting he has learned some tips and tricks for dealing with Helicopters.

  1. Be on top of your evaluations
  2. Explain multiple possibilities and how the rehab plan will help the total body.  
  3. Don’t be annoyed or upset if they want a 2nd opinion.
  4. Set them up with the best physician you can even if something minor, they expect to see the best.
  5. Win trust of other parents.  They talk to each other and good gossip about you goes a long way.
  6. Make them feel like their child is important, if they feel like they are 1/100s they won’t accept that.
  7. Always stay professional
  8. Go the extra mile to update them on injuries
  9. Have coaches support, as they will go ask coach about the athletic trainer or for updates.
  10.  Even if kid is not injured, have a relationship with the parent, even if it’s, just a simple hello and asking how their kid is doing.

Alternative Exercises for those who Cannot – 355

We all have that kid who either wants to work really hard and just can't do to injury or that wants to use the injury as a reason to be lazy.  We are also faced with man power issues in that if we cannot babysit those the whole time.  Athletic Trainers need to have a list of exercises to pull from knowing we will not cause harm to the injured site.
