NIC News & Updates


Health and WellnessRecently added to the National Institute of Corrections website, you will find a new Projects page on Health and Wellness for Corrections Professionals.   This webpage focuses on the personal well-being of corrections staff and provides resources and information for maintaining the safety and sanity of corrections professionals.

In addition to the NIC training webinars, resource list and research on organizational stress, health and wellness, a broad selection of material on Corrections Fatigue is available. Corrections Fatigue refers to the emotional challenges faced by correctional personnel and the potentially cumulative negative side effects of what staff experience through daily interactions with justice-involved individuals and immersion in uniquely challenging workplace conditions.

And be sure to attend NIC’s upcoming Virtual Conference New Directions in Corrections: Staff Wellness on June 10, 2015.
