Well-being Taskforce: The 3 P’s of Wellness: Peer Programs For Prosecutors

April 13, 2021

2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET
60-minute presentation 
CLE: 1.00 Credit

Being a prosecutor has always been a stressful job, but today we are facing some of the most difficult challenges in the world of criminal justice. Without realizing it, many prosecutors accumulate multiple layers of secondary trauma until they reach the point of compassion fatigue and burnout. Building resiliency and taking care of one another is a critical part of a safe and healthy work environment. Peer support teams are a way to connect with team members, provide training and information and be the bridge to needed outside resources.
In this webinar, you will learn the value of creating a Peer Support Team and how to take the necessary steps to build a program that provides a place for listening, empathy and non-judgmental sharing of information. Sometimes, all it takes is a shoulder to lean on or a safe, dedicated space to have someone just listen. Building a peer support program is an organizational strategy to help improve communication, resolve conflict and provide emotional support to someone in need. Whether someone is experiencing depression, substance abuse, illness, grief, relationship issues or work-related stress, having a program in place that can be easily accessed is a critical step in employee well-being and perseverance.
