9-1-1 telecommunicators are resilient by nature—they’re caregivers to the world! But without careful attention and regular check-ins, the challenges of the job can overwhelm even the most psychologically hardy. Research has shown that 9-1-1 telecommunicators who prioritize their resilience are happier on the job, feel more confident about their day, and experience greater life satisfaction. This presentation underscores the importance of resilience and offers specific tools and strategies for more of it.
In this session, participants will learn proven ways to:
- Understand the underlying cause of work-related chronic/traumatic stress
- Bring their best to their work life and home life, every day
- Create more time for themselves to do the things most important to them
