To facilitate the S.E.A.L. mission, The Wounded Blue has created a catalog of training programs and educational workshops designed for public safety agencies, Chiefs, Sheriffs, command staff, active-duty officers, peer support groups, LEO academies, private/public universities, and others concerned with the health & wellness of those sworn to protect our streets. Our curriculum has been carefully crafted to support The Wounded Blue issues of PTSI, abandonment, emotional/mental health, and compassionate care.
TWB Education Programs are offered on-site, with a hosting agency. They are ideal for annual training conferences or conventions. Instructors for The Wounded Blue are critical incident survivors and former supervisors who use their experience to bring positive change to our profession.
THE FOLLOWING IS A SUMMARY OF PROGRAMS CURRENTLY BEING OFFERED
