Attend a National Institute of Justice Virtual Seminar on Law Enforcement Stress and Trauma Research

Join the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) for the online seminar, “Law Enforcement Stress and Trauma,” on Friday, June 28 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. ET. This seminar will cover the current research evidence and practical outcomes associated with implementing stress-management interventions to safeguard police officers’ mental health when they encounter stressful incidents.

Police officers often run into traumatic events that yield stressful situations, environments, and working conditions. As a result, these officers experience high levels of stress that can harm their mental health and trigger mental illnesses such as post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and even anxiety. Moreover, research evidence reveals that stress can negatively impact a person’s concentration, memory, and mood, which, in turn, hinders his or her workplace performance. In response to these findings, the seminar provides an opportunity for participants to identify additional research needed to best support officer health and wellness, as well as other avenues to explore addressing law enforcement stress and trauma for future research.

This seminar is a part of NIJ’s Research for the Real World series that highlights research influencing practitioners and researchers’ thinking about policies and practices.

Register for the virtual event today.
