Sociology Research


The Trauma Resilience in UK Policing project explores how to better support the brain's ability to process trauma exposure and maintain resilience in contemporary operational policing. The 2017-2019 national pilot is sponsored by Police Care UK and works in collaboration with the Department of Sociology. Together, we are providing practical techniques, training material and evidence-based insight to bring real effective change to trauma management for police officers, staff and their families. Initial results were reported by BBC News on 9th May 2019.

Dr Jessica (Jess) Miller is working with Dr Brendan Burchell on this project. More details are available at:
