Course detail: Stress Management for Law Enforcement
Nearly twice the number of officers take their own life than those killed in the line of duty. Stress Management continues to remain an important and under-appreciated aspect of law enforcement. Even after decades of research and training, law enforcement practitioners continue to assume that some things are just "part of the job".
The common exposure to anguish, dangers of the job, and career responsibility only accompany the ever-changing police culture. These factors have made stress demands on law enforcement even more difficult. Obviously, there is no way to remove stress and burnout; however, there are steps and techniques that can be used to ensure effective stress management.
A law enforcement practitioner's ability to manage and use their emotions effectively and in a positive way is crucial for stress management and career survival while aiding in and helping establish positive community relations.
Participants will support their wellness and resilience with skills learned in the physical, mental, spiritual and emotional areas required of law enforcement officers.
Understand and utilize appropriate emotional intelligence in police matters as a means to avoid major police controversy.
Develop emotional control in an effort to understand, interpret and respond to the emotions of others.
