Corrections officers work in an environment that most people will never understand. The stressors in their daily work often take a toll on both their physical and mental health. According to several studies, it is reported that correction officers have a shorter life span compared to the national average. Often these daily stressors can lead to dissatisfaction or challenges in their everyday lives. Secondary trauma, compassion fatigue, and burnout are all potential challenges that corrections staff may experience. This training on Correction Officer Quality of Life, hopes to help change those statics, as well as improve the quality of life for correction officers.
This training will review the Quality-of-Life Triad developed by Kevin Briggs, and combine this with SAMHSA’s Eight Dimensions of Wellness. This training will help correction officers know areas of their life that are strengths as well as areas that they can work on. We will also focus on how to help look out for your fellow corrections officers. Participants of this training will come out of the training with their own wellness plan.
