Training Driven by Neuroscience
Designed to Improve Behavior, Mitigate Risky Behavior, Enhance Performance, and Harness the Mental Capacity of Law Enforcement Officers
The Science of Implicit Bias and Diversity Training
This course is designed to provide officers with an understanding of the science of bias, including the science underlying mechanisms for mitigating and managing biases. Officers will learn how bias might manifest in their own behavior, what they should practice to prevent it, and how to implement a plan of action that is designed to produce fair & impartial policing.
Stress Conditioning and Trauma Processing Technique
The course is designed to provide participants with an objective, scientific, and empirical understanding of stress, patterns of negative thinking and their association with negative behaviors, habits, aggression, violence, anxiety, and decision making processes. It explores the concepts of resilience, short and long-term stress management, teaching participants to become more immune to stress-triggered stimuli.
THE RESILIENCE TRAINING
Designed to improve resilience, performance, mental health and cognitive skills of aw enforcement officers
The Officer's Mind: Cognitive, Emotional, and Behavioral Conditioning
How can an officer gain a stronger sense of self, conquer negative thoughts and feelings, stop reinforcing self-deteriorating behavior, and improve mental self-control?
Officers will learn about the correlations between the brain and the mind, the mind and behavior, thinking processes and emotions, as well as mental health problems.
Our mission is to improve and enhance the performance, mental capacity, and the emotional and mental health of law enforcement professionals through the use of neuroscience, psychology, and metacognitive science.
IMPROVING MENTAL HEALTH BY IMPROVING THINKING
WHY SHOULD WE BE CONCERNED WITH HUMAN BIOLOGY WHEN TRAINING LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS?
We are biopsychosocial systems, in which biological, psychological, and social-cultural factors interact to influence behavior. It is the brain that enables our humanity: our thinking, feeling, and acting. As we go about our days, tens of billions of neurons communicate with thousands of other neurons that form the way by which we conduct ourselves in different environments.
By understanding cognitive science and neurological functions, we are able to engineer our behavior, increase resilience, accelerate our ability to coexist within society, perform appropriately in stressful environments, interact with other people without unnecessary conflicts, and thrive psychologically.
Use Stress for Self-Development
Stress is often defined as having two components: the psychological perception of pressure, and the physical manifestation of physiological mechanisms and biological systems. There are many scientific and social studies that identify stress and emotional instability as having devastating impacts on individual police officers, their supervisors, the department, and society.
Unlock Potential and Optimize Performance
It is crucial for every law enforcement agency to supply its officers with the necessary resources to sustain their physical and mental well-being. Due to the stressful demands of the job and the high-level responsibilities that the position of a police officer holds, taking a proactive approach to secure officers' mental and emotional stability equips them with behavioral tools that allow them to function and handle the dynamic demands of 21st century policing.
A NEW APPROACH TO LAW ENFORCEMENT TRAINING
Our training is a combination of cognition and situational awareness. We believe that the application of metacognition to the trained thought processes of law enforcement officers allows for greater awareness of the self and therefore greater awareness of the environment.
We use behavioral psychology to teach first responders how to develop a relationship between one’s internal cognition and external expression, as the two as irrevocably linked.
How an individual acts must first be determined by their thought processes; henceforth an analysis of an individual's behavior can provide insight into that individual’s thoughts and emotions.
