Dr. Jameca Falconer, a licensed psychologist with Argosy Universiy, Online Programs, was recently interviewed by “The Dallas Morning News” regarding her work with police officers and families after the shootings in Dallas.
Dr. Falconer worked with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department in Missouri after the shooting of Michael Brown. She says that large group meetings and counseling are effective ways for officers to process emotions after a tragedy.
"Peer support is still seen as an innovative technique in police departments," said Falconer. After the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Falconer worked with officers and community members who witnessed Brown's murder. "A lot of children saw everything that happened," she said. Falconer went door-to-door in the community offering support and tools such as arts and crafts kits to children.
