Students will experience coaching first-hand as they are coached be peers and the course instructor.

This presentation is designed to assist in helping the family members of law enforcement professionals understand the short and long-term effects on their professional career.
The course will help spouses, significant others and family members understand the initial enthusiasm and desire to contribute professionally that is felt by the law enforcement professional.
This enthusiasm and desire, over time, transforms into negative cynicism, social distrust and hostility to the world at large. While the course will focus on the impact towards family relations, interactions and the impact on their children in terms of school and health, it also will help develop behavioral strategies for the emotional survival of the officers and their families.
