Emotional Survival for Law Enforcement & First Responders

Learn the short and long-term effects of law enforcement and first responders on both personal and professional aspects of their lives. This course will also review the impact on children of first responder families in terms of school functioning and health. The goal of this course is to learn the potential impact this career causes in one’s personal life and to develop strategies for overall emotional survival.

My wife and I attended Dr. Gilmartin’s seminar and it was very informative. We learned a lot about the emotional stressors, what goes on in the minds of officers, and what officers may “bring home” at the end of their shift. A career in law enforcement also impacts your life off-duty and Dr. Gilmartin provided great tips to succeed at home as well.” – Joshua Lai, MVPD officer

Faith.Wife.Hero believes that healthy policing starts in the home. We want to encourage public safety professionals to invite their family as we inspire, educate, and interact as a law enforcement and first responder community.

Dr. Gilmartin is articulate and an expert on how to keep yourself and your family healthy. Everyone who is a cop, loves one, or wants to become one will benefit from his presentation. Thank you Mountain View Public Safety foundation for putting this on. My husband and I took several valuable tools home that day that continue to benefit our career and our personal life.” – Norma O’Connell SVDPS, spouse
