Combating Correctional Fatigue By Improving Your Hardiness Score
(One-hour session/two-hour session includes self-assessment tools)
The day-to-day stress of working in a correctional setting can take a toll on staff. If correctional fatigue goes unmonitored too long, it can have damaging effects on the individual employees as well as on a facility’s ability to successfully carry out its mission. During this session, participants will discuss potential causes of correctional fatigue and hear real-life examples of its detrimental effects. In addition, they will learn the definition, importance, and the elements of hardiness. Participants will receive practical examples that can be used to help them improve their hardiness. The participants will also be introduced to several additional personal growth topics to explore on their own.
