Unit 1 Slide Deck: Watch Your Six, Because Making It Home is Just the Beginning (Part 1)
Unit 2 Recording: Watch Your Six

This training module encourages and equips Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice Professionals, and their family members, to guard the six most vulnerable areas of life to promote health and well-being.

Officers often stress officer safety and “going home” at the end of the shift.  In this inspiring and thought-provoking presentation, Jonathan asks, “What then?”  to not only raise awareness about the real challenges facing our families, but also to offer steps through the development of a strategic action plan for successfully navigating a thriving career and home life.

As a result of Part 1* of this presentation, the attendee will:

  • Develop a foundational awareness of the six most vulnerable areas of life that we should be intentional about guarding for wellness and resiliency.
  • Identify the cyclical and interconnected nature of stress in each area of life, and work towards identifying the areas in their lives that could benefit from healthy goals or positive intervention.
  • Learn strategies for fostering wellness in both their personal and professional lives, even if their agency seems resistant to change.

*Attendees are strongly encouraged but not required to attend both Parts 1 and 2 as they function as a comprehensive unit.

  • “Jonathan is a great storyteller. The information provided was great. Looking forward to Part 2.” — Thomas
  • “This is a series of topics that need more attention in the criminal justice arena. LE Officers and Correctional Officer would certainly benefit from hearing Jonathan’s message.” — Tony
  • “It is very important to take stock of your life as a whole and that the whole cannot function at full capacity if one or more parts are damaged or not functioning at the proper level. We should have a never give up attitude for all aspects of our lives.” — Patricia
  • “Just beginning to talk about the effects of the job and have a safe place to share and listen. We are taught not to share emotion, it is truly time to start to share and heal! Thank you, Johnathan!” — Kathleen
  • “I am not a sworn officer, but I know the kind of stress they are under so this is a very important subject and the presenter was very passionate about this topic.” — Ken
  • “The most valuable thing for me was talking about taking care of myself so I am able to care for others. The 6 M’s were great! Mental health is so important and there are so many who do not recognize the impact of NOT taking care of our mental health.” — Kathy
