and Mental Toughness/Resilience Training for Police and Public Safety Professionals
After many years as a police psychologist, Dr. Asken is now available to provide psychological evaluations for police, fire and other public safety professionals and those aspiring to join these HERO (High Expectation and Risk) Occupations. Individuals may seek Pennsylvania required Act 120 or Act 235 psychological evaluations for lethal weapons certification on their own. These evaluations can also be arranged for agencies looking to screen personnel before hiring or promotion.
Those who place themselves in harm’s way are consistently told to focus, concentrate and utilize the survival mind set. However, rarely, or inconsistently, are they trained HOW to accomplish this. It is often assumed that mental toughness will automatically result from physical and tactical training. This is not always true, but mental toughness skills can be trained directly.
