Additional Information:
Police officers are not social workers or psychologists, nor should they be expected to take on these roles.

Still, law enforcement professionals have daily interactions with vulnerable children and families and officers can perform in their professional roles more effectively when they are grounded with knowledge about human development.

In this webinar, presenters will offer key information about typical development, coupled with information about signs/symptoms of acute traumatic exposure and strategies for officers to intervene effectively on-scene.
