“Creating Resilient Workplaces Study”
The proposed study aims to understand the impact of a 5-Class CBTm Course on variables contributing to workplace resilience among Public Safety Personnel (PSP). This involves examining the impact of the CBTm Course on prevention of PTSD and related conditions among PSPs. This research project will be undertaken using a randomized-controlled trial design. Questionnaires will be completed 1) before taking the course, 2) during the course, 3) after the course, and 4) at three-month follow-up.
Behavioral - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy with Mindfulness Course
The Cognitive Behaviour Therapy with Mindfulness (CBTm) Course for Public Safety Personnel is a brief psychoeducational course consisting of 5 classes (90 minutes each) occurring on a weekly basis. The CBTm course addresses the fundamentals of CBT and provides participants with practical strategies for managing stress (such as relaxation strategies, cognitive restructuring, goal setting, behavioural activation, and exposure therapy).
