Policing is a consuming profession with incredibly high elements of stress. Research suggests that police divorce rates are more than double the national average of ordinary marriages. The spouse's fear of physical danger, adjusting to shift work, transfers and changes in the officers' personality are only a few of the contributing factors, but the most crucial problem is the breakdown of communication within the relationship. From the beginning of the officers' careers they are trained to control their emotions, and thus are accused of being cold-hearted. Spouses agree that law enforcement officers grapple with the real-life horrors on the job and that the bitter belief that 'cops don't cry' is sadly untrue.

In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, he saw it all to be good except for one thing: man was alone. It was then that God created a suitable helper, a wife. Man would no longer be alone but the two would become one flesh. Being a wife is a journey of its own and being the wife of a law enforcement officer is a unique journey. As a wife on duty, whether it be through law enforcement, fire, or military, we share the protection of our spouse with our cities, counties, and country. Take a journey with a wife whose marriage had an uncertain future and see how God transformed her life once she surrendered it all. It was realizing that her role as a wife was prewritten and ordained by her maker which made her put her faith into action. With marriages falling apart every day in the law enforcement community, there is no better time than now to fight for our marriages with God by our side. Who better to seek council and guidance from than the one who created marriage in the first place?

Patterned on the outstanding success of I Love a Cop, this is the first book of its kind written exclusively for fire fighters and their families. Challenging two-dimensional stereotypes, Ellen Kirschman portrays fire fighters as they really are: complex men and women doing one of the world's toughest jobs and trying to fit comfortably into two families - the one at the firehouse and the one at home. I Love a Fire Fighter takes us on a journey from stationhouse to four-alarm blaze, from a harrowing ride with paramedics to a family dealing with shift work. Along the way, Kirschman addresses occupational health and safety issues along with domestic concerns including unpredictable schedules, lack of communication, and anxiety. Vivid anecdotes and practical tips show families how they can pull together when job stress threatens to spill over onto home turf, and shed light on what spouses and partners can do to help themselves, their mates, and their children live with the 'best job in the world.'

Nightmares, flashbacks, anger, concentration problems, emotional detachment, avoidance of people and places... These are some of the signs of PTSD. As many as one in three cops may suffer from PTSD, a condition that could lead to depression, suicidal thorughts, addictions, eating disorders, as well as job and family conflict. CopShock prepares police officers for the aftermath of horrific trauma, helps families understand PTSD's effect on their loved ones, tells true stories of officers-men and women-with PTSD, and offers over 200 support sources. In the second edition of this much praised book on police trauma survival, almost 50 percent of CopShock has been expanded, revised or updated with new material, including self-tests for PTSD, Panic Disorder, and Depression. Law enforcement officers throughout the United States, Canada and 8 other countries have used this book in their peer support programs, police academies, and post-trauma units. Therapists recommend it to their patients, and many law enforcement college programs include it in their curricula. Since the publication of CopShock's first edition in 1999, the book has been reviewed and praised around the world. The A&E Television Network produced a documentary based on CopShock that is shown today in police academies, colleges, and peer support groups. In this new second edition, and in the aftermath of 9/11, the war on terror, and the consequences from natural disasters like hurricane Katrina, CopShock will help many more police officers, firefighters, first responders, and war veterans cope with the damaging effects of PTSD.
