Healing the Badge Training:

Our “Healing the Badge” training courses can be scaled to 2, 4 or 8 hour blocks, depending on preference and needs.  We are passionate about providing law enforcement professionals with the tools requisite for success within, outside and beyond the law enforcement career.  We have observed the unchecked corrosive effects emanating from the negative aspects of the law enforcement career, as  significant suffering is inflicted upon officers, leaders and families.  Although substantial progress in the realm of emotional resilience education for law enforcement professionals has been observed during the past few decades, we assess this topic as remaining under addressed.  Our training aims to assist in closing the persistent gap between the emotional resilience knowledge available and the information presently disseminated to the profession.  Our training is presented from three primary perspectives, including assisting officers, leaders and families in the development of emotional durability.  Further, our instruction extends beyond many other emotional resilience training platforms, in that it integrates principles of leadership, as a critical mechanism for enhancing the emotional durability of officers and agents.
