Topic: Mental Health and Resilience Factors

Dr. Brandi Burque is currently a psychologist with the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office where she is responsible for providing psychological treatment for deputies and their families, teaching classes for the academy, and on call with their Crisis Negotiation Unit. She formerly was a staff psychologist for the San Antonio Police Department from 2013-2019. In 2010, Dr. Burque and Dr. Deloria Wilson from Air Force Security Forces developed an innovative stress management program for military and civilian law enforcement based upon principles from sports, law enforcement and military psychology. This program has since been implemented at SAPD entitled Performance & Recovery Optimization (PRO) starting in 2013 and has flourished and grown with the needs of the department thanks to officers teaming up in developing and enhancing the program. PRO has received recognition from the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), the Center for Naval Analysis (CNA), and the Department of Justice (DOJ). She has worked with CNA and IACP on the 21st Century Policing Initiative, consulting with departments across the United States. Dr. Burque-DeCarlo has presented at the FBI National Academy on topics such as PTSD and Critical Incident Stress Management and Crisis Intervention Teams. She has also presented on the risk and protective factors and case studies of school violence to several law enforcement agencies in the Midwest as part of an FBI collaboration.

This session is available in person and via Zoom.
