New Book "Dignity in Policing: How Emotional Well-Being Saves Lives, Families, and Careers" Explores the Critical Role of Emotional Literacy in Law Enforcement

In their new book, “Dignity in Policing: How Emotional Well-Being Saves Lives, Families, and Careers,” authors Marcel Brunel and Dan Newby present the often overlooked but important aspect of emotional well-being within the realm of law enforcement. From their deep experience working with practical emotional literacy, they present us with a compelling case for incorporating emotional awareness and regulation into the skill set of all first responders.

Demands on law enforcement personnel are increasing daily. This book proposes that emotional literacy is a tool that is indispensable for the complex challenges faced by those in this field. According to the authors, decades of research have shown that the way individuals handle traumatic events is crucial in determining their overall life satisfaction. It also emphasizes that it is not about the number of traumatic events encountered, but rather how one navigates through them.

The current state of policing which is marked by issues such as understaffing, societal division, and high tension levels, is not the result of a deliberate plan. Instead, it has evolved over many decades. “Dignity in Policing” encourages law enforcement agencies and individuals to take a proactive approach to emotional well-being. It tells us that we could and should be using emotional regulation as a powerful tool to improve decision-making, problem-solving, and relationship-building.

Author Dan Newby is a champion for emotional literacy who brings his extensive experience in teaching, coaching, and mentoring to the conversation. He is the author of several previous works which include “The Unopened Gift: A Primer in Emotional Literacy” and “The Field Guide to Emotions: A Practical Orientation to 150 Essential Emotions.” Newby has a practical and logical approach to understanding emotions and provides readers with insights into how emotions can be harnessed as an essential life skill.

Co-author Marcel Brunel has decades of experience working with organizations on emotions and performance development. He brings a special perspective on emotional intelligence in the context of law enforcement. Brunel collaborates with dozens of government organizations and police agencies providing innovative tools to assess and enhance his clients’ emotional understanding and competence.

“Dignity in Policing” is a call to action for first responders to prioritize their emotional well-being throughout their careers and beyond. It underscores the importance of emotional regulation, resilience, and the impact of emotional intelligence on individuals and organizations. It presents not just theory but straightforward ways of putting those concepts into practice. The book highlights the role of dignity in self-care and its significance in shaping a person’s standing in the world. It promotes a sense of unity and shines a light on the belief that when we individually do better we all do better.

In a society where people often view emotions as a sign of weakness, “Dignity in Policing” helps us see that emotions can support us individually and collectively in ways we never imagined possible.
