Course Summary:Today’s increased service demands and scrutiny placed upon public safety professionals have resulted in a growing need to master “Emotional Survival” skills in order to navigate a public safety career in a way that protects both their professional and personal lives.
Thousands of officers are currently in crisis—experiencing trauma, family and financial distress, behavioral health challenges, substance abuse and other health issues. Employee wellness programs shouldn’t wait for crisis to occur, but should begin during the hiring process and continue through retirement. Both preventative programs and crisis intervention should be utilized to influence the professional and personal lives of employees and their families.
“One of the biggest challenges to policing in a democratic society is maintaining an emotionally healthy force work of professional men and women who can deal with matters and issues that the rest of society cannot handle. If the average person could deal with the situation that the police are responding to, the police probably would not have been called for in the first place.…What becomes of the professional men and women who have to address those issues over the course of the decades of a police career?—Dr. Kevin Gilmartin (Nationally-recognized police psychologist and author of Emotional Survival for Law Enforcement)
