Alexis Artwohl and Loren W. Christensen

Written by Dr. Artwohl and retired police officer, martial artist, and author Loren Christensen, DEADLY FORCE ENCOUNTERS is a science based guide for police officers and their families on how to prepare for and cope with the aftermath of a violent encounter. Dr. Artwohl has received many thanks from officers who have found the book an invaluable resource when a criminal threatened to take their life or the life of a community member. Although some of the material is specific to law enforcement, any citizen can benefit from much of the advice should they find themselves in life or death situations.
