An insider perspective from a 'cop doc on the job,' this book is the first of its kind written in response to a need for a specialized guide for clinicians that operationally defines and responsibly treats what Dan Rudofossi terms Police and Public Safety Complex PTSD. In reading this book, you are led through an understanding of how to work with police officers who experience cumulative loss in trauma. "Doc Dan" initiates you into an original cultural competence of how and why his theory works in practice. You will leave the journey with a practical sense of how the ecological context and ethological motivation are part of the psychological presentation of almost all officers suffering from complex trauma and loss.This guide is crucial reading, original in its breadth and scope of perspective on how to intervene with the traumatized officer. Toward that end, Rudofossi presents his Eco-Ethological Existential Analysis of Police and Public Safety Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Emotive, affective, cognitive, behavioral, and existential ranges of expression of trauma are vast, diverse, and often intense in police officers. This book delivers applied theory with clinical examples, including practical interventions for the clinician and handouts for the officer-patient. The clinician will be assisted in encountering officers' existential suffering from the edge of despair to the precipice of meaning. The guide is at once stimulating, exciting, and very serious in its potential for clinical interventions.

From the Inside Flap:

"Dr. Dan Rudofossi's Working with Traumatized Police-Officer Patients will be the standard clinical text for a population likely to increase with the war on terrorism. This is a careful and sensitive work written by a clinician who spans both worlds. The scholarship and clinical acumen are impeccable. Clinicians who serve this population, as well as those who are interested in trauma, will find this a needed and necessary work. It is a wonderful text." —Kenneth J. Doka, Ph.D., Professor, The College of New Rochelle, Lutheran Minister, Senior Consultant, The Hospice Foundation of America "Dr. Rudofossi's comprehensive volume is intended for all those concerned with the care of psychologically traumatized workers in the field of public safety. From the first page to the last, it engages the reader in a conversation with a learned and experienced fellow therapist who is committed to his work and who has himself spent years as a police officer in New York City. The book contains illuminating case histories and an extensive review of the pertinent literature. Its author exhibits an admirable balance of enthusiasm and humility. He conveys to his readers how complex and difficult is the task to which he and they are committed, without losing any of the optimism and determination that are necessary to overcome its difficulties." —Charles Brenner, M.D., Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, State University of New York, Past President, American Psychoanalytic Association, Past President, New York Psychoanalytic Society "Dr. Daniel Rudofossi presents rare insights and demonstrates extraordinary clinical skills in his colossal work, Working with Traumatized Police-Officer Patients. He offers originality and creatively blends existing therapeutic modalities into his eco-ethological approach, which establishes the dignity and prizes the uniqueness of each individual officer-patient who has suffered Complex PTSD. Written by an insider—who was the street cop and became the cop-doc-this treatise will be an invaluable training manual for those attempting to work with traumatized public safety professionals. May it serve to heal the invisible wounds suffered by many in their tour of duty to protect public safety." —Ann V. Graber, Ph.D., Author, Viktor Frankl's Logotherapy "Dr. Rudofossi's book gives clinicians working with public safety professionals a solid understanding and theoretical foundation. An excellent resource for professionals, this guide should be on every clinician's bookshelf. The integration of Psychoanalysis/Psychodynamic Therapy and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy in the treatment of this population is the first of its kind." —Kristine Doyle, Ph.D., Associate Executive Director, Albert Ellis Institute "Dr. Dan Rudofossi's Working with Traumatized Police-Officer Patients is thorough, clearly expressed, and, most important, sorely needed. His book will prove of great value to clinicians, police administrators, and anyone concerned with learning about real trauma and its effect on law enforcement personnel. Because he is both a "street cop" and so astute a clinician, Dr. Rudofossi was able to straddle an imposing gulf and secure the trust of those he treated. This book is a rare piece of scholarship. It's also essential reading." —Vincent M. Mansfield, Commanding Officer, Medical Division, NYPD Retired Chief, NYPD (1966-2002) "Dr. Rudofossi's book is a breath of fresh air. It looks at an important and underdiscussed topic-the impact of job-related trauma on front-line public safety officers—from a wide array of psychological, social, clinical, and therapeutic perspectives, and does so in a clear, thoughtful, and meaningful way. We are all indebted to Dr. Rudofossi for taking on this major endeavor." —Michael L. Perlin, Director, International Mental Disability Law Reform Project, New York Law School "This book approaches PTSD sensitively and from various perspectives. Dr. Rudofossi bridges the crevasses among theories of how to deal with one of the most difficult tasks facing clinicians today." —Nando Pelusi, Ph.D., Contributing Editor, Psychology Today "I have had the distinct pleasure of seeing Dr. Dan Rudofossi's unique interventions. As both a uniformed member of the service and a psychologist, he was able to gain the trust of members, break down barriers, and develop a rapport with his patients that was often not possible with the civilian psychologists employed by the Police Department. I am not a clinician, but my 37 years with the NYPD (the last seven as commanding officer of the Medical Division) afforded me an insight into the personalities Dr. Rudofossi presents. . . . Dr. Rudofossi realizes the limits in compartmentalizing, realizes his limits in reaching all personalities, and, most importantly, realizes that "putting a time frame on . . . grieving . . . is illusory at best, a shared delusion at worst." This book, delving into the experiences of trauma and loss, is a multifaceted tool that can be shared by the therapist, student of psychology and criminal justice, and layperson and should be required reading for any clinician practicing in the public safety sector." —Viktor Werbkay, Commanding Officer Medical Division, NYPD Retired Deputy Inspector NYPD (1965-2002) "Working with Traumatized Police-Officer Patients is a scholarly and clinically sensitive work that illuminates the daunting emotional challenges confronting police officers in their everyday work life. Having served as a police officer himself, and as a psychologist who treats police officers, Dr. Rudofossi knows what he is talking about. In this inspiring and highly insightful volume, he clearly depicts the complex issues involved in assisting individuals who routinely place themselves in harm's way for the good of their communities. This much-needed text will prove invaluable to mental health professionals who work with police officers and with other individuals in high-risk professions." —Steve Southwick, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry, Yale School of Medicine, Deputy Director, Clinical Neuroscience Division, National Center PTSD - Veterans Administration Healthcare "This book is fascinating reading for therapists and every person intrigued with the human psyche and soul. Dr. Rudofossi, with great sensitivity, succeeds in getting officers at the edge of despair to reflect upon the value of their own lives—and the genuine meaning that can be found in reconnection with a higher spiritual force." —Rabbi Kalman Packouz, Founder, Aish Hatorah: United States and Jerusalem
