What people are saying
Laura Cole, Transparency Engagement Advisor, Cole Pro Media
This Guidebook is exactly what we need at this time! The authors have identified a need, unmet until now, and offer practical ways to support the Families of Law Enforcement and First Responders. I highly recommend this book for all agencies, departments, and offices as a resource to support the well-being of their families as they all sacrifice so we have safer communities.
John McGinness, Sacramento Co. Sheriff (ret)
The families of law enforcement professionals are often damaged by vicarious exposure to events that exceed the level humans should be expected to endure. Through the THRIVE program, Janine D’Agostini has worked with her team and developed an effective means to address the development of a first responders family support group. I heartily endorse this Guidebook that describes how to set up and run a family support program
Victoria M. Newman Founder, President, and Author of How2Love Our Cops
This guidebook has the answers. El Dorado County’s (CA) THRIVE With 10-35 was built into a lasting spouse organization that not only knows its role in supporting its agency but understands the power of its influence. Drawing from their tried-and-true experiences with THRIVE, authors Roe, Thompson, and D’Agostini have created a marvelous resource for others seeking to build a group of their own. This guidebook is thoughtful, practical, and loaded with great information—a must-have for all spouse groups!
Kevin Gilmartin, Ph.D., Police Psychologist
We know support for law enforcement families is very important, but can you point us to a program of family support that works and shows us how to get one started at our agency? I believe the book How to Thrive with Back up: a Guidebook for Supporting the Families of Those Who Serve answers those questions. The authors provide not just a philosophical perspective on the importance of supporting the families of those that protect society but give a blueprint of the nuts and bolts of building a program that accomplishes that goal.
Gordon Graham, J.D. , 33-year law enforcement veteran and co-founder of Lexipol
This book should be read by someone who has the ability to say “Yes” in every law enforcement agency in America. Once an informed leader recognizes the need for supporting the family, the next question will be “How do I do that?” The approach used by the authors, Thompson, Roe, and D’Agostini…to build a successful “THRIVE” program in your agency or department is amazingly simple and effective!
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.”
