Book Information:

Educate yourself on violence or violence will educate you. - Author Unknown

Reality Based Training, often described as high fidelity, scenario-based training, has become the standard for preparing police officers to perform when it is a matter of life or death.

Until recently, law enforcement instructors delivered this style of training guided purely on intuition, feedback and what little academic resources were available. A Scientific Approach to Reality Based Training provides law enforcement with a scientific foundation on how to use Reality Based Training to maximize officer performance under stress. The Assess-Diagnose-Prescribe-Train (ADAPT) Model is introduced to achieve a balance between the training and testing aspects of Reality Based Training scenarios. Readers are provided the ADAPT Model Scenario Builder software free of charge from the publisher.
