Self-Care for Criminal Justice Professionals Across the Sequential Intercept Model: Considerations for Intercepts 3-5 January 28, 2021, 2:00–3:30 p.m. ET

Self-care is a critical component of wellness for professionals across all intercepts of the criminal justice and behavioral health systems. Within Intercepts 3-5 of the Sequential Intercept Model (SIM), court, reentry, and community corrections personnel may experience stressors related to providing services and ensuring the safety of individuals experiencing crisis, mental or substance use disorders, or withdrawal symptoms. Many staff members face an increased exposure to stressors as they navigate additional challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. This webinar will present information about potential stressors faced by staff across Intercepts 3-5 and ways that agencies can support self-care as a protective factor against harmful responses to stress. Presenters will share best practices, resources, and supports that agencies and staff should be aware of to build resilience and promote self-care.

Learning Objectives

After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Recognize the possible effects of stressors experienced by court, reentry, and community corrections personnel, including secondary traumatic stress and vicarious trauma.
  • Describe three approaches or practices to enhance self-care across organizations and staff.
  • Identify resources and supports that can serve as protective factors against harmful responses to stress.
This webinar will offer live captioning and American Sign Language interpreting for participants.
