Stress Management & Wellness Training
Personal and work-related stress can have a significant impact on the psychological and physiological well-being of first responders. This workshop teaches participants about the stages of stress and some of the external trigger factors. It will help them understand the symptoms associated with stress as well as different ways to effectively cope with stressful situations.
Participants learn strategies and skills for controlling their anger in everyday situations. This workshop examines the causes and symptoms of anger and how to identify anger-provoking cues, and provides practical tools to help defuse those feelings before they reach an unsafe level.
According to the CDC, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. Intervention has been proven to save lives, and law enforcement peers, supervisors, and administrators are in ideal positions to monitor the psychological wellness of their department members. The awareness training and prevention techniques provided in this program will help participants acquire the understanding and the confidence to recognize the suicidal danger signs, and the tools to put intervention and prevention strategies in place.
Survival Skills for Police Spouses
The health and job performance of police officers are directly impacted by the support they receive at home. The more spouses or significant others understand about the effects this career has on their loved ones, the better the chance for healthy relationships and reduced stress on everyone involved. This session will cover the signs and symptoms that may indicate the job is having a negative impact. Cumulative stress and traumatic stress will be addressed, as well as what steps partners should take if they are concerned about their officer or themselves.
