The Post-Incident Workplace Employee Reference "POWER" Program Resource Page
The Post-Incident Workplace Employee Reference, POWER, Program supports the Department of Correction's initiative of employee wellness by providing support, informational resources, and referrals to victim services, counseling, and trauma-centered services following a critical incident-staff assault.
The purpose of this webpage is to provide information to anyone who has experienced trauma (whether physical, emotional or vicarious), in the hopes of minimizing the negative effects it can have on one's life.
It is my sincere hope that the information located on this page will assist those affected by trauma with the healing process.
