Anger Management & Incident Prevention for Officers – Part 1
There are a number of things that can biologically cause us to lose ourselves. Lack of sleep, hunger, irritability, lack of nutrients, hormone imbalance, problems at home, addiction (including alcohol), and being pushed too far.
The biggest problem is not having awareness of when we’re getting to that point. This seminar breaks down the stages of an officer’s threshold buttons so he or she knows when to pull back.
It also includes the “Pre-weapon series” to prevent insiders from happening without our control. This is a mind, body, and spirit approach to holding onto your Executive function in and out of work.
This is part of a Free Webinar that I did that covers a lot about anger management, causes and solutions. There is a PDF that goes with it as well.

Benefits of Meditation
As an example of the results of this work, In a Harvard study of just 6 weeks of brand new meditators, it was proven that the part of the brain that is responsible for fight or flight response shrank in size. This is the amygdala. And The part of the brain that is responsible for compassion and creativity has been proven to grow. This is something we could all use especially for de-escalation of disagreements on or off the job and so many other things.
When high levels of stress hormones are secreted often, they can contribute to a number of stress-related medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, Gastro-Intestinal diseases, adrenal fatigue, and more. Meditation and the other exercises in the program are not only helpful to turn off the fight-or-flight response but to bring the body back to pre-stress levels, which is why it is used by the military including with navy seals, and should be made available to all officers as there are so many benefits.
Tracking – Credit for the work
The seminar also includes a back-end system that can track an officer’s class completion, as well as answers to exercise questions and login time, and new lessons not opening up until previous lessons are completed. So there are multiple tracking methods if you’d like to add the completion of this to a bonus program or mandatory for a promotion as an example. Considering the number of risk factors caused directly by the job, some form of credit should be given for the work and it is trackable.
If as an individual officer, you want to get credit for this seminar with the department then send them the link and I’ll do everything I can to get your department on board to offer it with possible credit, either way, the benefits far excide the price and effort as it will directly affect your happiness and that of your family.
