Summary

Transformative Citizenship is a compassion and ethics-based training intervention uniquely tailored for Law Enforcement Agencies (“LEA”) in the US that will focus on empathy, emotional resilience and regulation, and behavioral and cultural shifts.

The Experience

This interactive program aims to provide the opportunity for transformative leadership within the United States Department of Justice Agencies like the DEA, FBI, Homeland Security, CPB, and police forces in all 50 states by exploring the meaning and practice of compassion and ethics-based leadership. The program consists of reflective thinking exercises that help participants observe and overcome biases, some that may be more deep seated than others, and provide active tools for de-escalation. Through interactive discussion and personal assignments, participants will reflect and become deeply aware of conditionings around personal and systemic values, racial and religious biases, to help promote more reflective and intentional actions.
