Title: Breaking the Code of Silence


Presenters: Kareem C. Puranda, NCC, LPC, LCAS, CCTP

Kareem is a former cop turned counselor. During his law enforcement career, Kareem served as a Police Officer, Detective, Special Response Team Member, School Resource Officer, Coach, Mentor and Volunteer. He witnessed the good, the bad and the ugly of police work. Seeing a dire need for counseling within the agency and the multi-cultural communities he patrolled, Kareem changed careers to become a dual licensed clinician who is also certified in treating trauma. With his distinct professions, Kareem brings a unique therapeutic approach to populations on both sides of the law. He specializes in counseling law enforcement officers, first time offenders, and juvenile delinquents. His private practice, Self-Talk Counseling & Consulting provides group, family, and individual counseling services. Kareem also provides trainings & workshops to police officers, teaches CBI & Drug Ed classes, offers mental health services and conducts various presentations in the community.  Kareem is relatable, practical and sincere. He is very passionate about healing people and building trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve.

In 2004 Kareem founded a nonprofit called Achieving Success on Purpose for the youth.  ASOP helps adolescents develop social and emotional intelligence to refute negative societal narratives. Kareem is also a speaker and author of two publications; COPS (Constructs of Policing Self) - a self-help manual for law enforcement, and Breaking the Code of Silence: A Cop’s Journey to Triumph and Truth.
