A Cop Doc's Guide to Public Safety Complex Trauma Syndrome

"Cop Doc's Guide to Public Safety Complex Trauma Syndrome" is written in response to the need for an advanced, specialized guide for clinicians to operationally define, understand, and responsibly treat complex post-traumatic stress and grief syndromes in the context of the unique varieties of police personality styles. The book continues where Rudofossi's first book, "Working with Traumatized Police Officer Patients", left off. Theory is wed to practice and practice to effective interventions with police officer-patients. The 'how' and 'why' of a clinician's approach is made highly effective by understanding the distinct personality styles of officer-patients. Rudofossi's theoretical approach segues into difficult examples that highlight each officer-patient's eco-ethological field experience of loss in trauma, with a focus on enhancing resilience and motivation to - otherwise left disenfranchised. Thus, this original work expands the ecological-ethological existential analysis of complex PTSD into the context of personality styles, with an emphasis on resilience - without ignoring the pathological aspects of loss that often envelop officer-patient trauma syndromes.

"One need not hold a Ph.D. or M.D. to appreciate the clinical sensitivity and useful insights that Dr. Rudofossi brings to this study of personality types of troubled police officers. He not only presents a classification model that is comprehensive in scope and rich in detail, but formulates a series of thoughtful treatment steps for use by experienced clinicians and novices alike." - Professor Theodore Millon, Ph.D., D.Sc., Dean and Scientific Director Institute for Advanced Studies in Personology and Psychopathology "Following his acclaimed Working with Traumatized Police Officer-Patients, in which 'Doc' Daniel Rudofossi spelled out what we are most often treating in officer-patients, this new book takes the next step: it searches out, for perhaps the first time, the commonalities in whom we are treating. We are offered the most effective words for psychotherapy: "By understanding..." The author's dictum: By understanding the common features of each police officer personality, we can effectively treat that individual. Dr. Rudofossi is police officer-patient centered. While not eschewing complexities, he presents an expert guide to treating complex post-traumatic stress and grief syndromes in police officers with an evidenced-based approach. This is both health-enhancing and better policing." - Antoon A. Leenaars, Ph.D. Author, Psychotherapy with Suicidal People: A Person-Centered Approach "Once again, in this sequel to his earlier book on traumatized police officers, Dr. Rudofossi has blended theoretical and practical applications of psychology and law enforcement. His approach of identifying the five varieties of public safety personality styles provides critical information for both mental health practitioners working with law enforcement personnel and law enforcement managers. This is an excellent book that should be read by all who work with, or are interested in, law enforcement officers!" - Thomas Creelman, M.A., CEAP, Employee Assistance Program Coordinator, New York State Office of the Attorney General "With his brilliant mind, amazing writing skills, experiential background, and psychological insight, Dr. Rudofossi offers the gift of his expertise in his profoundly interesting new book, A Cop Doc's Guide to Public Safety Complex Trauma Syndrome. A broad spectrum of readers will find complicated clinical theories coming alive with Dr. Rudofossi's use of case studies born in actual field experiences. This book promises to be stunningly useful in facilitating the healing process even when facing the most disenfranchising trauma." - Robert C Barnes, Ph.D., President, International Board of Directors Viktor Frankl Institute of Logotherapy"
