‘Where has this training been all my life?’: How healing trauma could actually reform policing

Commissioner Michael Harrison (Baltimore Police Department) and Commissioner Michael Cox (Boston Police Department) are helping officers heal their trauma with an approach called Rewire CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy). This approach allows officers exposed to trauma to become aware of their emotions and connect with how they think, feel, and act. Through this approach, officers may better regulate their emotions and have more positive interactions with the public.
