Managing psychological support within law enforcement organizations: Preliminary results of the RIPTOP project

Date and time: Wednesday 13 September 2023, 11 am CST

It has been proven that being exposed to potentially traumatic events while performing their duties can have a psychological impact on police officers. Yet, evidence from scientific research and communities of practice is still unclear, especially when it comes to posttraumatic support. Who needs to do what, and how? Are there response times to comply with? What roles do the organization, the manager and the union representative play? The preliminary results presented during this webinar seek to identify the best preventive practices, with regard to psychological support for police officers, taking into account individual, peri-traumatic and organizational challenges. 

Presented by:
