What people are saying
Gary Schofield, Captain, Training Bureau , Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department
“The lessons learned and taught about Emotional Survival need to be taught in every class of new recruits and to every officer working. The need to do so is great. We as a profession need to consider emotional survival as a part of officer survival.”
Brian Adkin, President, Ontario Provincial Police Association, Ontario, Canada
“Emotional Survival is an incredible book about the journey through the maze of police work. If you’re a front line officer, supervisor, or command officer, you will see yourself in this book. It is the first book I have read that describes what really happens to police officers in their careers, with incredible insight into the stress and difficulties of being a police officer. Dr. Kevin Gilmartin sets out proactive strategies for police officers and their families to survive the most dangerous profession.”
Paul N. Conner, Chief of Police , Round Rock Police Department, Texas , Retired Deputy Chief, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department
“Dr. Gilmartin’s book, Emotional Survival for Law Enforcement, is the tool we need to keep focused on the emotional well-being of our personnel. In addition, it provides those uninitiated to Gilmartin’s concepts the opportunity to experience his dynamic class as he guides us step-by-step through the personal challenges faced by every cop.
Armed with Gilmartin’s book, officers can learn to successfully cope with one of the toughest jobs in a free society. Law enforcement can be a rewarding career that leaves one fulfilled, not bitter, caring, not isolated, and most important, a survivor, not a victim. Gilmartin’s work is a significant tool to help us achieve this goal.”
Douglas L. Bartosh, Chief of Police and Director of Public Safety , Scottsdale, Arizona
“I have been through Dr. Gilmartin’s Emotional Survival training at least twice in my career and I found his lessons on surviving a law enforcement career the most valuable tool to my success and emotional survival both professionally and personally. . . . This book should be required reading for all new police officers and their loved ones.”
Ronald J. Guilmette, Director, Massachusetts Police Leadership Institute, Lt. Colonel, Massachusetts State Police (Retired)
“Emotional Survival is a must read for the men, women and families of those who enter the field of law enforcement. Kevin Gilmartin shares his tremendous insight into the real “roller coaster journey” that police officers will take during their careers. Reading this book could save your life, your marriage and the lives of your children. Thank you Kevin for sharing with all of us your insight and strategies for survival.”
Sergeant Alan Green , Los Angeles Police Department
“As a twenty-six-year veteran of law enforcement, I have had the opportunity to read many books and observe many trainers. Emotional Survival is a work of art! This book is perhaps the best law enforcement–related reading I have ever experienced. Whether you have twenty minutes on the job or twenty years, this book will make you a better officer and a better person, and just might save your life. Any person who wears a badge must read this book to better understand the climate of the profession. Dr. Kevin Gilmartin’s experience and background in this field make him a definite asset to the law enforcement community and their families. Kevin has hit a home run with Emotional Survival, and will ultimately impact thousands of lives.”
Robert J. King, Sergeant – President, Portland Police Association
“For years I thought my number one job was to live through 25 years of street encounters. After 13 years of experience I realize my goal is not just to survive the street but is to live a life filled with relationships that bring me happiness and fulfillment. Police work is a great profession but it is the kind of work that without intervention destroys people and families. Dr. Gilmartin’s book Emotional Survival breaks us out of our denial about the effects of the work and gives us helpful, practical concepts we can use to make our work and home life better. Dr. Gilmartin’s book Emotional Survival is good for cops, families, police departments and communities.”
Ann Marie Doherty , Superintendent Boston Police Dept.
“The unique and increased value of this book . . . is that it can easily be revisited periodically. There are many occasions where reading (and rereading) this book can be immensely beneficial—these include when an officer is hired, reassigned, and/or promoted. From a command perspective, this book provides insights which can directly influence how certain management decisions are made and, sometimes more importantly, delivered. Finally, this book provides guidance to agency heads and senior management as to the tone that must be set in order to increase survivors and decrease victims within their organizations.”
Deputy Kevin Ortiz – Taken from Command Magazine: The Journal of the Texas Tactical Police
“Dr. Gilmartin is a behavioral scientist who specializes in issues related to law enforcement. With twenty years of police experience under his belt, he currently provides service to the law enforcement community as a consultant. In writing this book, it was his goal to aid officers and their families in maintaining and/or improving their quality of life both personally and professionally.” Read the full article.
