Desert Waters Correctional Outreach, Inc., (DWCO) helps correctional agencies counter Corrections Fatigue in their staff by cultivating a healthier workplace climate and a more engaged workforce through targeted skill-based training and research.

The term Corrections Fatigue, coined in 2000 by DWCO’s founder, Caterina Spinaris, PhD, describes the combined and cumulative toll of three types of occupational stressors inherent to corrections work—operational stressors, organizational stressors, and traumatic stressors. Corrections Fatigue results in negative changes in corrections staff’s personality, health and functioning, and in the workplace culture.

DWCO’s signature course, “From Corrections Fatigue to Fulfillment™” received the 2016 Commercial Product of the Year Award of Excellence by the International Association of Correctional Training Personnel.
