Kansas City First Responders Mindful Of Being In The Moment
Teaching mindfulness to first responders could produce a better decision process in high-stress situations.
Mindfulness teachers Erik Hulse and Angela Caruso-Yahne believe their practices can help first responders at home and while on duty. "Had I had some kind of mindfulness training in the police academy or earlier in my career, I think it would have profoundly impacted the trajectory of my career and my personal life and my health as well," Hulse says. They both hope their teachings can help public safety workers during more difficult and stressful moments in their duties.
