SEMINARS FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT
The seminars are one day classes. Content can be abbreviated for shorter classes.
PERFORMANCE UNDER EXTREME STRESS: IMPLICATIONS FOR TRAINING AND INVESTIGATIONS
Dr. Artwohl presents an evidence-based analysis of the human performance dynamics of police combat and other extreme stress incidents. The multiple peer-reviewed research areas she discusses include perception, memory, decision making, and the implications these have for physical, emotional, and legal survival. Understanding these human dynamics will help agencies improve their training, their community relationships, and maximize the accuracy of their investigations.
IT’S A TOUGH JOB
Stress is an inevitable part of all employment. For police officers, these sources of stress include critical incidents on the street and organizational stressors inside their agency. Personal stressors also take their toll as they do for everyone. Dr. Artwohl reviews the research that analyzes the mental health of police officers and presents findings that you may find surprising. This evidence-based information will help officers and agencies better allocate their efforts and resources for assisting officers in coping with stress.
SEMINARS FOR THE CCW COMMUNITY
LESSONS LEARNED FROM POLICE COMBAT
Dr. Artwohl covers much of the same human performance research contained in the law enforcement seminar PERFORMANCE UNDER EXTREME STRESS. However, this seminar is edited to be relevant for community members who want to better understand and prepare for their physical, legal, and emotional survival when faced with extreme events.
