Keeping The Super Heroes Super
Public safety professionals are passionate about serving others; however, this calling can take its toll. High stress, low sleep, dealing with the worst of society and witnessing human tragedy reduces employees' mental/physical health. This class will explore the differences between stress, burnout and compassion fatigue and describe how to address each one, discuss why we all struggle to have balance in our lives and engage in regular self-care, detail what our “early warning systems” are, and describe specific strategies, tools and interventions that can be used by both individuals and organizations to foster healthy coping, balance and a positive mindset in employees.
