The professionalization of policing has been a hot topic recently. Dr. Lauren D. Eisler, the dean of the faculty of Human and Social Sciences at the Brantford Campus of Wilfrid Laurier University tackles education in policing and its relationship to resilience, as well as lifelong learning for leaders in law enforcement.

She explains the value for officers in taking a new, free course from Laurier Online, a special edition based on modules within the school’s Positive Psychology Certificate. She also addresses the connection between education and well-being overall as well as advice for online and remote learning platforms as the world pivots due to COVID-19.
