VIDEO: Florida Officers Receive Resiliency Training
A small Panama City-based business is helping coach people with one of the toughest jobs in the world.
The idea is to help law enforcement officers cope with their stress.
It's called resilience training, and recently law enforcement officers from Bay, Jackson, and Gulf counties found out why it's important.
Capt. Smiley is one of several dozen area officers working with the local company Human Performance Consultants for two days of training.
"They gonna walk away with specific tools they can actually use in their day-to-day lives," HPC Founder Ed Naggiar told WJHG-TV 7. "That's going to help them be more resilient,more productive and, most importantly of all, happier."
The course focuses on what Naggiar calls resilience training. It's supposed to help people manage stress through physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual outlets.
