The Ventura County Deputy Sheriffs' Association is proud to host Dr. Kevin Gilmartin, author of Emotional Survival For Law Enforcement, who will present a full-day seminar for our members. Dr. Gilmartin's book is one that we recommend everyone in the law enforcement world read every five years, and to hear him speak live is something most never get to experience.
The seminar is FREE for SoCal First Responders and a single family member (limit of 2 tickets per First Responder). Lunch is provided!
The Emotional Survival for Law Enforcement Officers training addresses the dynamics that can transform within a matter of a few years, idealistic and committed law enforcement officers/employees into cynical, angry individuals who begin having difficulties in both the personal and professional aspects of their lives. The lecture points out how law enforcement personnel develop a social perceptual set that can potentially see employees engaging in inappropriate behavior patterns and decision-making that leads to both administrative and can unfortunately in some personnel lead to criminal difficulties. The basic theme and goal of the lecture are to provide information that lets the officer/employee see how the deterioration process can take place and what specific preventative strategies can be employed to reduce the negative emotional impact of a law enforcement career. Emotional Survival for Law Enforcement Officers training has the goal to provide information that assists law enforcement personnel to remain committed and engaged in productive law enforcement.
