Police Stress: A Selected Bibliography.
Duncan, J. T. Skip, Comp.; And Others
The need to perform effectively under stress is a concern in many professions. For police officers and managers, who make split-second life and death decisions, the problem takes on added significance. The annotated documents compiled are in three sections: an overview to describe types and effects of stresses, police stress causal factors, and management approaches to reduce stress. Appendices describe 33 training films that depict stressful situations and promote successful management techniques, and give a source list of annotated documents. (Author/BMW)
