Policemen Undergo Stress Management Seminar
MANILA, Philippine --- Even "Robocop", they say, needs an overhauling for optimum performance.
And not a cyborg like the popular superhero cop, members of the Philippine National Police, particularly those assigned in the field, underwent "overhauling" through the conduct of stress management seminar, an official said.
What made the stress management seminar special, according to Chief Supt. Agrimero Cruz, Jr., is that the lecture was done a member of the Chaplain Service of the Delano City Police in California, Rev. Joseph Wright, who is dubbed as an expert on the field.
Cruz, the acting director of the Police Community Relations Group (PCRG), said the lecture which was done on Friday is vital to the several policemen who attended it as police works are faced with various pressures both from the community and within the organization.
"The basic stress management learned from the lecture would be of great help to the PNP since its members touch base with the community," said Cruz.
"The activity also endeavors to reduce the impact of trauma to individuals especially police officers by providing early intervention and allowing for early effective expression of crisis experience," he added.
Cruz said the PNP was lucky to have personally received lectures from Wright who has been conducting psychological and spiritual lectures not only in the United States but also in other parts of the world. …
