SRO6: Self-Care and Wellness

School Resource Officers routinely encounter stress while helping to create and ensure a safe and supportive learning environment for all students. It’s paramount that those in this role take their own self-care and wellness seriously. Designed for School Resource Officers, this course provides an overview of common signs that self-care is needed, a diverse array of self-care methods, tips for building resilience to avoid burnout, and where and how to seek additional support.
