The nature of working in corrections and law enforcement can often lead to constant levels of stress and/or exposure to trauma. To provide resources agencies can use to build resiliency in their employees, the FBI National Academy Associates Officer Safety and Wellness Committee was created. They partnered with Acadia Healthcare to serve agencies whose employees are affected by trauma. “With the ongoing stressors in a demanding environment, the need for preventative and educational awareness is monumental,” said Janelle Cronk with Acadia Healthcare. Cronk will deliver “Resiliency 101: Four Pillars of a Healthy Mind” at a breakout session.
Janelle Cronk is a strategic performance coach who specializes in developing and maintaining strategic accounts and partnerships for Acadia Healthcare. She has served on the Officer Safety and Wellness Committee for the FBI National Academy Associates.
Cronk is a certified “Train the Trainer” for the United States Air Force’s Master Resiliency Program and has trained hundreds of first responders on resiliency, wellness and resolution. “If we cannot train and educate those who lead our organizations on how their employees can transcend the effects of workplace stressors and trauma, we will lose our best employees, “Cronk explained. The program is a preventative approach to addressing the challenges that military members face by focusing on the four pillars of a healthy mind – mental, social, spiritual and physical.
Possessing the unique ability to create fast and critical solutions, Cronk has earned a certificate of honor from the U.S. Capitol for having saved many lives within the first-responder population. Additionally, she partners with Fortune 500 companies to provide them with new perspectives in how to gainfully review employee performance and sustainability.
