About the Course
This course is designed as a proactive approach to suicide prevention. The skills and resources taught during this
course may help save the life of an officer. The course provides cognitive and behavioral tools necessary to sustain
officer’s mental health, build emotional resilience, and reduce the risk of suicide before a crisis point.
This course is designed to provide officers with an understanding of the psychology of suicide, fear, stress, emotions,
thoughts, and behaviors that result from critical incidents or traumatic events, and utilize such knowledge to provide
effective behavioral interventions that can mitigate the potential psychological impact that those events can have on the officers.
The course introduces officers to specific functions and the architectural design of the human brain. Officers will learn how different parts of the brain are responsible for trauma processing, emotions, stress, fear, anxiety, and PTSD. It will provide an understanding of the importance of knowing the correlation between biological activities and psychological events, and how this correlation affects decision making, emotions, and behavior.
