Police Health and Mental Wellness 2-Hours
This course explores the many issues and problems police officers commonly face with stress in their careers. Included are the traps into which many officers fall, the difference between stress and trauma, and how critical incidents and cumulative stress can shorten a career. Students will learn several easy steps by which they can avoid the impacts of chronic stress, be prepared for trauma before it happens, and enjoy a career that is long, healthy, and satisfying. Students will also have an understanding of how to assist others in preventing “burnout,” trauma, and even suicide.
