Mental Wellness and Trauma Informed Care (1 Day) (1 day)

The mental wellness of law enforcement personnel is impacted by the daily demands of serving the community. Law enforcement personnel must interact with members of the community that may have experienced emotional trauma in their lifetime. Acute and chronic trauma exposure can cause a negative psychological and physiological impact on both LE personnel and the community. This class is designed to help LE personnel learn to improve their mental wellness while providing Trauma Informed Care to the community. A trauma-informed system is one that builds awareness and knowledge of trauma to act compassionately toward trauma-impacted victims, recognize trauma within ourselves, and take informed steps toward our own wellness.
