Psychological surveillance and structured interview training is part of the psychological support programme launched by Oscar Kilo, the National Police Wellbeing Service (NPWS).

It was designed to help police forces improve the mental health support offered to officers and staff when undertaking structured psychological interviews and preparing reports for employees and management.

Is this course for me?

Structured interview training covers the following areas:

  • recognising the need for psychological surveillance for high risk roles

  • explaining the results of a screening report

  • undertaking a structured interview

  • recording the results of an initial and follow-up structured interview

  • demonstrating rational decision making

The training will provide the skills to undertake the interventions in your force or by exception and only in agreement with your force as part of mutual aid.

What previous delegates are saying about this course

It was informative, a great way to change practice and a proactive way for results and reports.

Self assessment has been useful to avoid burnout and compassion fatigue. We can support others in a different way to counselling. 

The use of the online screening process and the report produced was very helpful to see and clearly, it has a lot of applications clinically and for research.
