Nothing that is worth doing is easy, and that includes loving a cop. Being a member of the Law Enforcement community is a source of pride for officers and families. But long hours, unpredictable changes and the nature of the profession can turn home life into an emotional roller coaster.
Dr. Ellen Kirschman, a psychologist who has worked with police officers for over 30 years, gives you practical ways to face the challenges that come with the territory. Packed with cop stories, this book explains how to reduce the impact of stress in the workplace and cope with loneliness or worry during extra hours of work.
Dr. Kirschman recognizes the difficult realities of law enforcement in the twenty-first century and offers frank and realistic suggestions for dealing with serious problems such as alcohol abuse and domestic violence. It also covers special topics for women and minorities in force. Whether you read it from one blanket to another or when you encounter it when you have problems, "I Love a Cop" is an indispensable tool that everyone in your family can rely on.
