Stress at work : Self‐monitoring of stressors and resources to support employees

High levels of stress at work may have serious consequences for employee functioning and mental health. By providing employees with an easily accessible instrument to regularly evaluate stressors and resources, employee self‐monitoring and guidance to support can be accommodated. We evaluated an online selfmonitoring tool Brief Assessment of Stress and Energy (BASE). Through their organization, 139 railway emergency services employees were invited to complete BASE and six wellbeing measures.

Resilience after natural disasters : the process of harnessing resources in communities differentially exposed to a flood

Background: Disasters negatively impact mental health and well-being. Studying how people adapt and recover after adversity is crucial for disaster preparedness and response.

 

Correction : Mobile Insight in Risk, Resilience, and Online Referral (MIRROR) : Psychometric Evaluation of an Online Self-Help Test

In “Mobile Insight in Risk, Resilience, and Online Referral (MIRROR): Psychometric Evaluation of an Online Self-Help Test” (J Med Internet Res 2020;22(9):e19716) one correction was made. This does not affect the analysis nor does it affect the interpretation or presentation of the results in the study.

Compromised Conscience : A Scoping Review of Moral Injury Among Firefighters, Paramedics, and Police Officers

Background: Public Safety Personnel (e.g., firefighters, paramedics, and police officers) are routinely exposed to human suffering and need to make quick, morally challenging decisions. Such decisions can affect their psychological wellbeing. Participating in or observing an event or situation that conflicts with personal values can potentially lead to the development of moral injury. Common stressors associated with moral injury include betrayal, inability to prevent death or harm, and ethical dilemmas.

Human Health Risks of Conducted Electrical Weapon Exposure : A Systematic Review

IMPORTANCE Conducted electrical weapons (CEWs) are used broadly as a less-lethal force option for police officers. However, there is no clear picture of the possible health risks in humans on the basis of rigorously assessed scientific evidence from the international peer-reviewed literature.

 

OBJECTIVE To synthesize and systematically evaluate the strength of published evidence for an association between exposure to different models of CEWs and adverse acute as well as chronic conditions.
 

 

Resilient control : Neural emotion-regulatory circuitries predicting acute and long-term stress-responses

When we try to cope with stressful or challenging situations, our ability to regulate our responses towards these events is crucial. The general aim of this thesis was to investigate the role of prefrontal control over approach-avoidance tendencies in explaining individual differences in stress vulnerability and emotional responsivity. The large NWO-subsidized prospective longitudinal Police-In-Action (PIA) study enabled me to address this question in early-career police officers at high risk for trauma-exposure.

 

Understanding Moral Injury In Police Online Child Sex Crime Investigators

What are the contributing factors to moral injury in child exploitation investigators, and how can these factors be mitigated?
Throughout their careers, police officers are exposed to an estimated 900 traumatic events, which, coupled with organisational stressors, contribute to mental ill-health and psychological trauma.

Repeated exposure to work-related traumatic incidents, impedes the ability for many police officers to cope, with the concurrent risk of developing psychopathology and moral injury.

Longitudinal associations of psychological resilience with mental health and functioning among military personnel : A meta-analysis of prospective studies

Background

Military personnel are exposed to severe stressors across different stages of their career that may have a negative impact on mental health and functioning. It is often suggested that psychological resilience plays an important role in the maintenance and/or enhancement of their mental health and functioning under these circumstances.
