Course Learning Goals

In partnership with the Minnesota Sheriffs' Association, Commander Tim Harris will present 'Becoming the Best You- Traumatic Stress & Vicarious Trauma.'

Participants in this section will learn topics that include:

  • Understanding how trauma exposure and stress may influence officer decisions and behavior.
  • Discussing strategies that support good officer mental and physical health.
  • Comprehend when help is needed and where and what resources are available to seek help.

For years, officer mental and physical health were not discussed or trained on, but the exposure to trauma related to police work has led to a host of personal and professional issues. The most important step is understanding what trauma is, and how to avoid complacency and cynicism. Participants will hear from an experienced prosecutor and a member of law enforcement who will identify areas of trauma and provide participants with useful tools needed to prevent the trauma from affecting them and their families.
