Sharpening The Warrior's Edge is the first text which examines survival and combat performance from a scientific perspective. Author Bruce K. Siddle methodically brings together one hundred years of research which identifies the relationship between survuval stress, the heart rate and combat performance. Beyond mere theory, the test explains ... why combat performance and reaction time deteriorates under the effects of survival stress, why and how perceptual and visual narrowing occurs during combat, an insight into Survival Stress Management techniques designed for combat, how to develop a training methodology which combines educational psychology, neurobiology, principles of learning and motor learning research. Most importantly, Siddle explores the psychological and spiritual components which establish the warrior mindset. This pioneering text is a must read for present -day warriors, or anyone involved in use of force, combat or martial arts training.

"Counterpredators" is a modern solution to an ancient problem: Parents face the overwhelming responsibility of training their children to navigate the threat environment and safely molding them into powerful, self-aware, authentic adults. At the same time, many parents do not themselves possess the necessary skill set-and when their children sense this, they begin to adopt questionable heroes and role models. In the natural world, animal parents train their young by repeatedly exposing them to hazard, while demonstrating efficient risk management, yet our society teaches us to do the exact opposite: Shelter and protect our children from whatever might harm them. As a result, many children are profoundly unprepared to deal with real threat. Since both animal and human young are equally vulnerable, it is easy to spot the weak link: The unprepared human parent. To solve this problem, parents need to assume a powerful new identity, something unique and elemental that rivets the attention and imagination of their children. They must become counterpredators: individuals who have the skill and the will to engage and overcome human threats. "Counterpredators" is the story of how to achieve this transition using cutting edge methodology. Survival Response Conditioning --the re-activation of dormant, subconscious survival skills combined with high pressure, scenario based experiences--produces rapid, permanent change and provides the launch pad for an unbreakable bond of love and respect between parents and children.

The Handbook of Police Psychology represents the contributions of over thirty police psychologists, all experts in their field, on the core subject matters of police psychology. Police psychology is broadly defined as the application of psychological principles and methods to law enforcement. This growing area includes topics such as screening and hiring of police officers; conducting screening for special squads (e.g., SWAT); fitness-for-duty evaluations; investigations, hostage negotiations; training and consultation, and stress counseling, among others. The book examines the beginnings of police psychology and early influences on the profession such as experimental investigations of psychological testing on police attitude and performance. Influential figures in the field of police psychology are discussed, including the nation’s first full-time police psychologist who served on the Los Angeles Police Department, and the first full-time police officer to earn a doctorate in psychology while still in uniform with the New York Police Department.

Emergency Services Leadership: A Contemporary Approach offers a comprehensive view of the historical developments of leadership models, presents a variety of leadership theories, and explores how various theories apply to current emergency services leadership roles. The authors address how leadership has evolved from the theories of “position and authority” to more contemporary approaches in which leadership is expressed in terms of influence relations, servitude, risk agencies, and transformational change agents. Best practices for making ethical, compassionate, and competent leadership decisions are also discussed. The ideal introduction to leadership concepts in modern-day emergency services agencies, Emergency Services Leadership: A Contemporary Approach is appropriate for EMS, fire services, law enforcement, emergency management, and military courses and is an ideal resource for department-specific training programs, especially for officer development. The authors weave personal experiences, interviews with current emergency services leaders, and leadership points to ponder throughout the chapters. End-of-chapter activities allow readers to explore their leadership capabilities and apply concepts presented in the text. The author team brings their extensive experience in emergency services, military application, and leadership research to this text. All of the authors are involved in higher education levels and serve in leadership capacities in various arenas.
