Overview

The newly revised second edition of Stress Management in Law Enforcement by Dr. Leonard Territo and Dr. James Sewell is once again a carefully selected collection of the leading articles on stress and its consequences for police personnel. This edition, incorporating new and relevant material, comprises nine sections which cover the following topics: What is Stress All About?; What Does Stress Mean for Cops?; Are There Ways We Can Tell It's There?; What Are Some of the Bad Effects of Stress on Cops?; How Does Stress Impact a Cop's Family Life?; How Does the Worst of the Worst Affect Cops?; What Are the Tools That a Cop Can Use to Better Handle Stress?; What Support is Available for Cops? and How Can the Bosses Better Help Their Cops?

A brief summary precedes each section to assist the reader in readily identifying articles which might be of particular interest. Each article contains end-of-chapter discussion questions which are answered in detail in the instructor's manual. The sections are also accompanied by a glossary of terms and a list of additional recommended readings.

This book will specifically interest the criminal justice academic community as an adjunctive resource in police management courses or as the primary text in upper division seminars on the topic of police stress management. This book will also be of considerable interest to police administrators and officers who must deal on a daily basis with the negative side effects of stress. Stress Management in Law Enforcement is relevant for police administrators as well as police psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, social workers, and other mental health professionals who are called upon to provideguidance and assistance to police officers.

This new edition is accompanied by a 200's manual which provides the instructor with learning objectives; answers to the end-of-chapter discussion questions; a comprehensive list of videos dealing with police stress and how they can be purchased; and a list of recommended readings.

"It is a worthy addition to the library of any thoughtful student of police behavior and culture."
