PODCAST EPISODE#15: LAURA KLOOSTERMAN: Why Resilience and Self-Care Matters for Public Safety


32-year police veteran, peer support officer, and Badge of Life Canada board member, Laura Kloosterman talks about resilience and self-care and why they matter for police officers, other law enforcement and first responders.


Resilience as a process and a capacity that grows as we meet and work through challenging situations.

How distress and personal growth can occur simultaneously as we learn to thrive in challenging situations.

How we get caught in "thinking traps" like catastrophizing and the importance of cultivating gratitude, faith and trust in order to deepen our resilience and sustain our wellbeing.
