You and the Police: EA Professionals Working with Law Enforcement

May 5, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Free - $85

Presented by: Commander Daniel Edwards

Topic Summary:

It is important for EA Professionals to help managers understand the minds of police officers.  Connecting, and opening up may be difficult to overcome when speaking with someone outside of the group concerning issues that affect police employees. This session will explore the mindset of officers from training to incidents.  Through knowledge, awareness, and compassion, managers might be better equipped to provide appropriate support, as well as encourage police to seek out the EA professional for support earlier in their concerns rather than later.  Managers are often at a loss for how to respond to an officer undergoing a challenging life incident. Recognizing the sensitivity of stigmatism may aide EA professionals in supporting police officers in being more effective when serving and protecting.
