Question description

Officer Stress Week 3 Dis 2 (Mar)

External in nature that causes both physical and emotional strain upon the body. The late Hans Selye, who is known as "the father of stress research," defined stress as a nonspecific response of a body to demands placed on it.  

To help officers deal with stress and its effects, a comprehensive wellness program is needed that should include five elements: (1) physical fitness, (2) stress management, (3) psychological and mental health, (4) nutrition and dietary-related behaviors, and (5) alcohol/chemical dependency.

Police agencies need a comprehensive wellness program to assist officers in coping with stress, but if that fails or is absent, an employee assistance program (EAP) should be available to help officers to cope with alcohol and substance abuse, psychological problems such as depression, or family management problems.

Read the Employee Assistance Program – The Police Notebook and address the following:

  • Why has the University of Oklahoma Police Department established an EAP, and how does the program work?
  • What portions of the EAP presented did you find particularly helpful? Why?  
  • What portions should be expanded? Why?
  • In your opinion, do you think either a comprehensive wellness program or an EAP helps with officer stress? Why or why not?

Our discussion first individuals response, need bad and good of post list reference

Why has the University of Oklahoma Police Department established an EAP, and how does the program work?

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides professional and confidential help to faculty, staff, and their family members who are facing challenges. The purpose of the EAP is to help the employee find the best resources to deal with his or her particular problem. The EAP, in cooperation with the employee, does an assessment about the nature of the problem and the best avenue for help (The University of Oklahoma Human Resources, 2015).

What portions of the EAP presented did you find particularly helpful? Why?

What I find most helpful in regarding the EAP is the fact that it is available to all household members and dependents. Personally, I believe that this is great because most times it may take a wife or husband, son or daughter, aunt or uncle, to reach out to these sources for help when that individual officer is in denial that he or she may have a problem. Rather its stress, drug or alcohol problems, anger issues, depression, etc. Sometimes it take significant other, particularly a family member, to step in and get the help they needed that would assist their family. The first step in problem resolution is admitting that there is a problem and being willing to get help.

What portions should be expanded? Why?

I happen to notice that this EAP includes up to 3 counseling sessions for officers and their eligible dependents or household members at no cost. However, I don’t believe having just 3 sessions will be enough to fix the problem. Therefore, this portion of the Employee-Assistance- Program should be expanded. The expansion of sessions will allow officers and their families to feel as if they are really getting the help that they need. I would suggest it be broken into three phases over the course of maybe six sessions; a 2 session per phase type thing. The first phase phase would introduce people involve and the issue, second phase would be the options to resolution phase, and the final phase could be like a follow up to that resolution. Families would benefit more with expanded sessions allowing them to voice their concerns and hash out all problems that not only effects the officer but also his or her love ones.

In your opinion, do you think either a comprehensive wellness program or an EAP helps with officer stress? Why or why not?

Personally, I think for some it does help and for others no. I say that because some peoples pride get in their way and they feel as if they don’t need anyone else stepping into their business and or family business. As I mentioned before, some people wont admit that they have a problem or a problem with stress and may need other alternatives to reach their happiness. For others who seek help and are willing to cooperate with the program and all that it offers then yes, it will work.
