Police officers are consistently exposed to the most tragic and traumatic events in our society. Left untreated, cumulative trauma can deplete coping strategies and stigma typically deters officers from seeking help. This has resulted in the highest rates of police suicide, whereby more officers die by their own hands than in the line of duty, consecutively over the last 4 years. Together we can start a conversation that matters.Contact Us
Our mission is to provide wellness training & consulting services to law enforcement agencies and their personnel to achieve improved mental health outcomes and maximize organizational health & wellness.
The purpose of this course and/or consulting services is to understand the impacts of trauma on law enforcement and stigma and provide necessary tools to rebuild resilience, in an effort to provide law enforcement with best practices that will help with their overall wellness to have a lasting, meaningful career and balanced life at home. The highest professional standards in training are sought by fostering a safe, holistic, non-judgmental, peer-driven learning environment where students play an active role in a controlled class setting, facilitated by an instructor who is not a clinician or attorney, but a retired officer himself.
Our past negative behaviors can be reversed when we begin to heal past traumatic events. Emotional trauma can be addressed to achieve self-regulation, which generates healthier behaviors essential to living a purposeful life. This cannot happen in isolation or by repeating the mistakes of our past. It takes a community to heal; this can be accomplished by working together.
Untreated trauma can result in the appearance of high level coping (or adaptive coping: nutrition, diet, exercise, yoga, meditation, faith, etc.). These are not, however, examples of trauma work or emotional regulation and it only takes one circumstance or incident to trigger a past traumatic event that without trauma work, the landscape in which you interpret the new event, identify why it’s affecting you and how to navigate your way out of the problem becomes a probable reality that may deregulate the central nervous system and brains responses to new AND past events.
