SHIFT Wellness understands child sexual exploitation and abuse cases can have wide reaching effects on all areas of law enforcement and judicial professions. The negative effects of exposure to such cases, however widespread, can be mitigated through awareness, education and the use of tools and techniques to build resiliency. SHIFT provides training for judicial professionals, including court staff, probation professionals and Child Advocacy professionals to assist with developing wellness practices that enable individuals, teams and organizations to effectively address concerns and effects.
