How to Be Resilient In These Changing Times

Hours: 4.00 | Estimated Cost: $35.00

These are very challenging times for Law Enforcement Officers, Command Staff and Dispatchers. It is a challenging time for any and all who experience stressful situations day in and day out. Stress can kill, and we know that. But more insidious is how stress slowly erodes us from being our best and most resilient.

Much of the current research of people involved in traumatic incidents finds that large numbers of those affected by the incident will recover without experiencing debilitating mental health issues.

This course identifies risk factors that might impede resiliency; What predicts psychological resilience following a traumatic incident; and strategies to build resilience and facilitate recovery.
