Emotional Survival for Law Enforcement

Kevin M. Gilmartin, Ph.D.

Subtitled "A Guide for Officers and Their families", this book is designed to help law enforcement professionals overcome the internal assaults they experience both personally and organizationally over the course of their careers.

These assaults can transform idealistic and committed officers into angry, cynical individuals, leading to significant problems in both their personal and professional lives.

Officers and their families can experience a law enforcement career as emotional survivors instead of falling by the wayside as victims of predictable and preventable challenges.
