Working in law enforcement, while incredibly rewarding, can at times also be equally stressful.

And then, there’s events like the Pulse Nightclub Shooing in Orlando.

Or Sandy Hook Elementary, in Newtown, Connecticut.

Our immediate thoughts, of course, are with the victims and their families, and how this horrifying event will forever change their lives.

But what’s not often talked about, is how such events also impact – and continue to impact – the lives of the first responders who help the victims of these tragedies.

As shared in the COPS and NAMI briefing document, Preparing for the Unimaginable, “The truth, however, is that day-to-day police work includes enough stress and exposure to trauma for chiefs to be concerned about every officer’s mental wellness, whether or not you ever experience a mass casualty event.”

Join webinar host Amy Morgan, director of Academy Hour, to learn:

  • key skills and ability to develop individual and team strength to be better prepared for major traumatic events,
  • how to debrief following an action,
  • and work toward healthy recovery and team cohesiveness.
