Build Your Resilience Skills: Gratitude and Optimism

This conference workshop presentation includes two representatives from the South Dakota Highway Patrol, who participated in IACP's VALOR Law Enforcement Resilience Training Program, demonstrating a resilience skill based on gratitude and optimism that viewers can easily incorporate into their lives in order to decrease anxiety and depression and increase optimism and well-being. The stressors that police face can have serious implications for overall health and wellness. Having the skills to navigate adversity and grow and thrive in the face of the many challenges that law enforcement experience could strengthen both mental and physical wellness.
