Practical Tactical Psychology Workshop

April 1 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


This program is designed to provide ‘brain fuel’ to help individuals create their own
strategies for dealing with high-stress situations and to help them identify their limitations
as well as their own innate, hidden tools. Learning and understanding the complex world of

lessons of psychology and will present them in a condensed, useful format for the group.
This is not a ‘self-help’ clinic but a presentation of how individuals in high-stress, highdanger situations exercise self-control techniques to succeed. It is very easy to become
hijacked by one’s own physiological and mental self-defense mechanisms in a high-risk,
high-stress situation, and our goal is to help individuals understand the mechanisms and
adjust their own tactics and thinking to stay in self-control and prevail. Knowing is the first
