Summary
  • "Consistently being immersed in violence, tragedies, danger, and evil often scars the spirits of our emergency first responders, resulting in PTSD, depression, suicides (the number one cause of death for police officers), substance abuse, broken families, and emotional pain. Firefighters, police officers, soldiers, medics, and emergency room workers are vulnerable to feelings of helplessness and suffering, and many do not know where or how to find help. It's a crisis in our first responder communities, and these men and women need training to protect, nurture, and sustain their spirits. Based on 25 years of service as a police officer, Captain Dan Willis's unique handbook presents essential keys and time-proven approaches to emotional survival and well-being. This innovative and practical resource provides dozens of effective methods for first responders to protect and heal their minds and hearts based on lessons learned in the line of duty. Topics include warning signs and self-awareness; sustaining one's spirit; wellness practices; understanding the psychology and mitigation of trauma; tapping into support from home and peers; and faith in service. These principles - plainly outlined by a police captain who has himself suffered and healed - act as a bulletproof vest for the mind, heart, and spirit"--
  • ""Advice for soldiers, firefighters, police officers, EMTs, emergency room nurses, etc. about PTSD, depression, insomnia, panic attacks, alcoholism, and domestic violence, divorce, and suicide. Topics include spiritual wellness, the psychology of trauma, and finding support and motivation. Author is a police captain and former SWAT commander"--Provided by publisher"--
