This 8-hour seminar provides students with the skills and knowledge necessary to understand officer wellness and emotional intelligence. The course, led by Sergeant Robert Fox and Dr. Dalal Juma, covers the Officer Wellness Model and its various components, including awareness, solution-focused approaches, peer support, resiliency, healthy habits, spirituality, and family. Participants will also learn about Emotional Quotient (EQ) and the various components of Emotional Intelligence (EI), including self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills. Students will be required to demonstrate proficiency in both officer wellness and emotional intelligence components by completing self-assessments and reflecting on areas that require additional development.
