Mr Adeleke Taiwo of the Arogi Team, while presenting the lecture, touched on some topics that included: Stress, Anger Management, Substance use and Emotional Intelligence. He explained that stress is an inevitable challenge for police officers, therefore every police personnel should know how to manage stress. According to the seasoned psychologist, “stress sometimes come by the virtue of occupation one is into and it can come in the form of sleeplessness, anger, fear and anxiety”.

The officers were also enlightened on how anger as an emotion can affect them while on the job and the importance of the need to control anger through following some anger management tips. In the words of Mr Adeleke, “Anger is a natural emotion that happens to everyone but when it is not checked, it becomes a big problem. You can control your anger through expressing your concerns, walking away during a heated argument, looking for possible solutions and laughing it off.’’ He further admonished the officers to practice emotional intelligence which is the ability to understand one’s emotions as well as the emotions of others while showing empathy.
