Friday, June 21, 2019 -
8:30am to 4:30pm

This in-person workshop on Introduction to Police Psychology is presented by Dr. Jaime Brower and Dr. Philip Trompetter. This workshop provides core knowledge, with a sample of applications, of the police and public psychology specialty. Police and public safety psychology (PPSP) is concerned with assisting law enforcement and other public safety personnel and agencies in carrying out their missions and societal functions with effectiveness, safety, health and conformity to laws and ethics.

It consists of the application of the science and profession of psychology in four primary domains of practice: Assessment, Intervention, Operational Support and Organizational consultation. The workshop begins with a history of the specialty followed by descriptions of many of the core proficiencies that define the practice. The workshop will include examples of PPSP practice such as crisis/hostage negotiations, employer-mandated psychological evaluations, interventions following officer-involved shootings and other activities. Importantly, the workshop will promote the cultural competence concepts necessary for a psychologist to work effectively with first responders. This workshop has been approved by the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) for 7 CPE credits.
