Thin Blue Mind Courses

The Thin Blue Mind Courses

The Jaws of Life for the Police Soul

Dr. Gary Aumiller is launching an online teaching series dedicated to helping men and women in law enforcement achieve their mental health goals. These courses will run up to around 90 minutes, broken up into 5 to 7 minute videos and will be dedicated to topics such as: divorce, suicide, stress, panic/anxiety attacks, PTSD, morale, motivation leadership, and much more. Our goal is education and entertainment.  Think of it as BlueTube videos.  We want to be the best thing you will see on a computer and the most memorable.  We want to do experiences that hold the attention of our audience.  The listing of programs to start in the fall is below.

The world has changed, and we are trying at Inside Police Psychology to match that change. While the world has been living on YouTube videos and webinar programs for education, there has never been such a such a service particularly for public safety personnel and their health and well-being. Perhaps one video could help an officer keep his job, or keep an officer from swallowing his gun, or stop an officer from having a heart attack, or stop a panic attack, or mend irritable bowel syndrome. Or, maybe stop an officer from using his hands when it is not necessary. Helping this segment of the population helps us all.

Dr. Aumiller has a way of presenting that can help all people in uniform and without a uniform. The courses will be offered to all, as anyone can benefit from the techniques. We expect, however, that most of our viewers initially will be from law enforcement because after 32 years in the population, they have built up the trust for Dr. Aumiller and his list of guest authors, presenters, and developers. But just as with the website Inside Police Psychology, anyone can join and learn.
