Law Enforcement Peer Support Team Manual
The Manual is designed so that peer support team members and others may examine the Contents and select topics of interest. The individual topic documents are designed so that they may be used independently of one another. Therefore, some information pertinent to the topic title may appear in more than one document. Some documents are in outline form and are best understood in conjunction with the Police Peer Support Team Training (PPSTT) program.
The Manual includes documents and information created by the author and others. In cases where the source of specific information is known, the source has been cited. The author acknowledges the contributions of sources and authors whose thoughts and ideas have been incorporated into general knowledge and are no longer readily identified or cited. The Manual is intended as a companion publication to Reflections of a Police Psychologist (2nd ed) and Contemporary Issues in Police Psychology.
