Nothing 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 alike. But long hours, unpredictable shifts,
and the crisis-driven nature of the profession can turn life on the
home front into an emotional roller coaster. Dr. Ellen Kirschman, a
psychologist who's worked with police officers for more than 30
years, gives you practical ways to deal with the challenges that
come with the territory. Packed with stories from cops and their
significant others, this book explains how to reduce spillover from
on-the-job stress and cope with loneliness or worry during extended
deployments. Dr. Kirschman acknowledges the tough realities of
21st-century law enforcement and offers frank, realistic
suggestions for handling serious issues like alcohol abuse and
domestic violence. She also covers special topics for women and
minorities on the force. Whether you read it from cover to cover or
reach for it when problems arise, I Love a Cop is an indispensable
tool that everyone in your family can depend on. Mental health
professionals, see also Counseling Cops: What Clinicians Need to
Know, by Ellen Kirschman, Mark Kamena, and Joel Fay.
