Police psychology is broadly defined as the application of psychological principles and methods to law enforcement. This growing area includes topics such as screening and hiring of police officers; conducting screening for special squads (e.g., SWAT); fitness-for-duty evaluations; investigations, hostage negotiations; training and consultation, and stress counseling, among others. The book examines the beginnings of police psychology and early influences on the profession such as experimental investigations of psychological testing on police attitude and performance. Influential figures in the field of police psychology are discussed, including the nation’s first full-time police psychologist who served on the Los Angeles Police Department, and the first full-time police officer to earn a doctorate in psychology while still in uniform with the New York Police Department.

Wer Konflikte und schwierige Situationen anpackt und mit der Macht des Dialogs löst, schafft es, das eigene Potenzial und das der Mitarbeiter auszuschöpfen. So kann vermieden werden, dass das Unternehmen, das Team oder die eigene Person an den schwelenden Konflikten zerbricht oder durch die - meist nur in den Köpfen existierende - Ausweglosigkeit dauerhaft gelähmt wird. George Kohlrieser, der sein enormes Wissen nicht nur aus seiner Arbeit als klinischer und als Organisationspsychologe, sondern auch aus seinen Erfolgen als Verhandlungsführer bei Geiselnahmen schöpft, vermittelt dem Leser Schritt für Schritt, wie man selbst immer Herr der Lage bleibt. Anhand von realen Geiselsituationen beschreibt der Autor die Schlüsselfaktoren, die den Leser befähigen, mentale Blockaden zu beseitigen, die uns alle immer wieder zu Gefangenen werden lassen. Führungskräfte erfahren, was sie tun müssen, um eine vertrauensvolle Zusammenarbeit und eine positive, engagierte Einstellung im Team zu erreichen: - Sprechen Sie die Situation klar an. - Bauen Sie echte Beziehungen auf - auch zum "Feind". - Denken Sie niemals wie eine Geisel. - Nutzen Sie die Macht von Dialog und Verhandlung. - Seien Sie selbst eine verlässliche Basis und bilden Sie so Vertrauen. - Verstehen Sie, dass eine Person niemals das Problem ist. - Richten Sie Ihr geistiges Auge auf Erfolg.

Conflict and crisis communication is the management of a critical incident which has the potential for resolution through successful negotiations. This can include negotiating with individuals in crisis, such as those threatening self-harm or taking individuals hostage as part of emotional expression, and also critical incidents such as kidnapping and terrorist activities. By focusing on the empirical and strong theoretical underpinnings of critical incident management, and including clear demonstrations of the practical application of conflict and crisis communication by experts in the field, this book proves to be a practical, comprehensive and up-to-date resource. Discussion of relevant past incidents – such as the 1993 WACO siege in the United States – is used to enhance learning, whilst an examination of the application of critical incident management to individuals with mental disorder offers groundbreaking insight from clinicians working in this area. Conflict and Crisis Communication is an excellent source of reference for national and international law enforcement agencies, professionals working in forensic settings, and also postgraduate students with an interest in forensic psychology and forensic mental health.

This updated and expanded new edition emphasizesthe need for law enforcement and emergency service workers to handle critical incidents in a positive manner when encountering people in public crises. The book's focus is on the approaches, stratagems, difficult circumstances, and the ability to effectively advance the course of the negotiations in the best interests of all concerned. Active listening is presented in an enhanced form with several important objectives and innovations: (1) in addition to basic techniques, advanced techniques are taught to increase the range and variety of negotiator response; (2) the material is geared more specifically to law enforcement and emergency service officers; (3) several means of skills practice are offered to help the trainee become more comfortable and more proficient; (4) explanations, examples, and applications that make the material sensible, practical, and comprehensive; and finally (5) advanced techniques, drawn from many fields, allow both novices and experienced negotiators to find challenge and skills enhancement. As author Slatkin advises: 'Do each exercise thoroughly. Work closely with others in and outside of formal training settings and value the feedback you get so that you can hone your skills. Get to the other side of your unfamiliarity, awkwardness, and insecurity through practice. Make effective communication and active listening not just what you do when you negotiate but something you do in all aspects of your work and home life.' Written exercises and a role-play (with training scenarios) are included to help negotiators acquire and practice the basic communication techniques that appear in the book. This text will be of interest to all police and corrections agencies, fire and rescue emergency personnel, medical service personnel, and chaplains.
