Silouan graduated from Vanderbilt University in 1991 and then accepted a commission in the United States Marine Corps. While serving in the Marines, Silouan was involved in a jet training accident. In the ejection, Silouan's back was broken and his co-pilot tragically killed. This horrible event and the complications that followed led to the development of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD. He was disability discharged and then had to learn to put his life back together. It began with a two-year motorcycle journey where he learned to live.
Silouan instructs on Responding to PTSD and Officers in Crisis, Overcoming Adversity, and Foundational Leadership. He teaches people to become leaders in all aspects of their lives, and to use the trials and transitions we all face as fuel to live free and lead with purpose. He has taught around the country at places such as: Walter Reed Medical Center, Fort Campbell, Camp LeJeune, to thousands of police officers and first responders from hundreds of law enforcement agencies, mental health professionals, corporations, non-profits and major universities. Silouan is a dynamic speaker whose classes are focused on delivering solid information and practical tools for living and leading. He provides a broad perspective that officers find refreshing, educational, and most of all, motivating to lead.

No officer hurt!, No veteran hurt!, a stronger community and more resilient police department.
This two day training module is taught by a veteran who has worked with veterans and police
officers on issues of transition and service for almost a decade. A survivor of a tragic jet crash as a US Marine and
someone who overcame severe PTSD, he understands personally the kind of issues veterans face coming home and how to
respond to them.
More and more veterans are coming home to our communities. While many have a healthy
transition, others face a myriad of difficulties from unemployment, depression, PTSD and in some cases, destructive
behavior such as domestic violence, suicide, and other disturbances.
This class will prepare your officers to better respond to veterans while making themselves more
resilient. Combat veterans and police officers have similar lifetime rates of conditions like PTSD, and a resilient
police department is the best way to prepare to respond to veterans.
Understand the difficulties veterans face in the transition home
Understand how PTSD develops and manifests itself in veterans
Understand how to defuse threatening situations with veterans
Understand why resilient officers better respond to veterans in distress
Create a culture of resiliency and pro-active community awareness of veteran's issues
