“Staying Well – Strategies for Corrections Staff” by Caterina Spinaris Tudor
Corrections staff operate in an environment of chronic stress, continual alertness, and ever-present possibility of violence. Staff are exposed to violence in a multitude of ways. Gradually, this exposure, coupled with the high stress and need for continual watchfulness, breeds symptoms of distress. Staff need both the permission to safely acknowledge their struggles and effective practical tools for dealing with the impact of their jobs. This booklet provides you with information to increase your awareness of how your job may be changing you and ways to deal with those changes.
