Mindful Policing - Nonviolence Masterclass
Today, violence happens anywhere, anytime and is not limited to our socio-economic status or a certain neighborhoods. An act of violence could be global terrorism, mass shooting, suicide, drug overdose, homicide, domestic abuse, etc.
As first responders, police officers are not immune to the psychological impact that acts of violence can have on them, often affecting an officer’s mental health and well-being. It is vital that police officers prioritize self-care, maintain their mental health and improve their resilience so they can be mentally and physically healthy to meet the demands of the job and serve their community with pride.
Recently, in partnership with Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), we have delivered a masterclass on nonviolence for community members and police officers in South Central Los Angeles.
The success from that effort has encouraged us to work with other police departments across the country to reinvigorate nonviolence in local communities. We hope that you will feel inspired to reach out so we can work together and promote nonviolence in your city and neighborhood.
