Optimizing Situational Awareness: Reducing Risk, 8 hours

STC: 0920-082141

Situational awareness begins with the process of collecting timely, relevant, and accurate information of the environment. However, what are often neglected are the human factors that increase error and risk, promote unsafe encounters, contribute to physical injuries, result in undue mental stress, reduce productivity at work, and increase personal problems. This course examines contemporary case studies, and uses videos, group breakout exercises, and lecture to provide clarity to probation and corrections officers so they can mitigate risk by considering general and positive psychology research, studies on stress, performance, and sleep deprivation, and effective communications and situational awareness concepts during day-to-day or high-risk incidents.
