Partnering Up: How to Create a Culture of Wellness that Lasts

Viewers wil hear from a Deputy Chief, a Commanding Officer, and Police Psychologists in how they have partnered together to implement intentional excitement around wellness in a high crime, impoverished area. Don't reinvent the wheel; learn from their successes and mistakes! Viwers will take away hard-earned tools and strategies to implement as a leader in their agencies to promote the resiliency of their personnel.
