On Friday, October 10th, 2008 Dr. Ari Novick gave a 4-hour presentation on stress management to the attendees of the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association. His presentation was a total success. Law enforcement personal have some of the most high stress jobs in the nation. With state budget cuts, they are often forced to take only the “necessary” classes each year to refine their law enforcement skills. All who attended praised Dr. Novick for a fine presentation on Stress Management and were surprised to learn so many new skills for reducing their own stress and improving coping skills.
Those in attendance included first responders, special agents, department of justice, CHP, dispatchers, detectives, sheriff’s, police, swat team members, and many others.
Law enforcement personnel have special needs beyond those in the general public. Both the stress and the lifestyle of these positions can be incredibly demanding and taxing on ones emotional stability as well as physical health.
At the end of the presentation I made two recommendations. The first recommendation was to offer this type of training at a local level. Information about such “corporate” type on-site training for stress or anger management can be found on our website. The second recommendation was to send law enforcement staff directly to executive coaching, which can be done on a one/one format. The AJ Novick Group offers one of the finest executive coaching programs for stress and anger management in the nation. Information on these programs can also be found on our website.
Dr. Novick would like to thank the CSLEA for having him participate in this years 28th annual association conference. Any who would like to contact him can do so at the address below.
