Firepsyche:
Mental Toughness & The Valor Mindset for the Fireground

FIREPSYCHE advances mental toughness concepts and skills using the platform of the VALOR Mindset. While obviously speaking to the nobility and character of firefighters, the term is also meant to serve as a reminder to firefighters of essential psychological skills that characterize their profession and enhance their efforts. VALOR is an acronym for Vigilance, Awareness, Leadership and Optimal Resilience. The overriding goal of FIREPSYCHE and the VALOR Mindset is to provide firefighters with a foundation in the psychological skills of mental toughness that can promote optimal discipline, safety, survival and success on the fireground and for all emergency calls.

Going Deep by Michael Asken, Ph.D.

Click here for Frank T. Masur's biography.

Going Deep is an invaluable tool in keeping the undercover officer healthy; mentally, physically, and professionally, allowing them to perform effectively even under the most demanding stresses of covert operations.

Going Deep is a first-rate journey into the unforgiving world of undercover operations. It describes the potential pitfalls that may touch undercover operatives and provides a holistic approach to addressing and possibly preventing them.

Major (Ret) Mark E. Lomax, MBA, MS, Pennsylvania State Police

Going Deep represents a kind of psychoemotional body armor needed for undercover operatives and those wishing to go undercover. Even though Going Deep was written to help undercover officers survive the psychoemotional stress of covert operations, this book has broad-based applicability to police work in general. Using the strategies and techniques in Going Deep can help improve and, perhaps, even save your life both physically and emotionally. Its beneficial effects will extend to your family, friends and loved ones.
