Law enforcement officers are experiencing a high propensity of violent and life-threatening confrontations. As a result, law enforcement officers find themselves dealing with physiological and psychological issues that stem from such terrorizing incidents and events. Many law enforcement officers are found to have a condition known as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), yet often are not identified as needing competent therapeutic treatment for management of its symptomology. This thesis investigates the issues that surround therapy of those law enforcement officers who are diagnosed with PTSD, the methods they have been involved with for the management of PTSD, and if the use of Stress Inoculation Training (SIT) is best suited for positive outcomes of treatment.
