EMOTIONAL RESILIENCE & WELLBEING PROGRAMSupporting Emergency Service workers through building stronger mindsets
Module 5 – Lesson 3: Family members & loved ones
WHAT is in this lesson?
This lesson is for both the officer & their family member / loved ones (*age appropriate needs to be taken into consideration – with relation to the content shared).
For many, their family / loved ones aren’t in the job – so don’t fully understand what it’s like.
This lesson gives them an insight & understanding as to many of your possible behaviours / traits, & some practical tips to help them cope with your working in the Emergency Services.
WHY is it important?
Our family / loved ones are often the ones who tend to experience the fallout of any emotional baggage that we may be subconsciously experiencing as a ‘hazard’ of the job.
Therefore, it’s important that they are given a better understanding of what the job is about, as well as possible emotional feeling that may occur, – so that they can not only prepare themselves, but be on the lookout if you may need some help at some stage.
