    Here you will meet several children helped by Cornerstone who suffered from tragic losses and tragic circumstances. This chapter is essentially practical in its orientation to technique, describing several forms of treatment of bereaved children, with a minimum of theoretical essay. Probably the best definition of "mourning" for our current purposes is, "the totality of reaction to the loss of a loved object."

    7/7/2015 · Security
    A report of shots fired at the Navy Yard in Washington, D. C. brought a huge response from law enforcement from all areas. The response was immediate and overwhelming. As it turns out, the report was false. The incident remains under investigation at the time of this writing.

    5/26/2015 · Security
    Coordinating security for corporate offices, hotels, apartments, convenience stores, and just about every other possible location can have its challenges. Coordinating security at major events, however, is especially challenging. This article will focus on some of the challenges I faced when coordinating security for several events and locations in Houston, Texas for Super Bowl XXXVI.

    Not long after I promoted to sergeant, I was training in a patrol division. I was riding with another sergeant when we received a call from two patrol officers. They were at an apartment complex and had chased a male into an apartment. They requested a supervisor go by with them. So, as part of my training, we went.

    I have read a number of books, studies, and court cases in my career to support the fact that eyewitness identification, by itself, is never sufficient enough to send a person to prison. This is not news. Over the past 20 years, more and more people are being exonerated for violent crimes due to DNA . This article is not to rehash old arguments. Instead, it is more of a reminder to investigators everywhere to not finalize a case, charge a person, and send them to prison based solely on an eyewitness' identification.

    3/26/2015 · Law Enforcement
    During my 22-year law enforcement career, I became involved in countless situations in which I personally dealt with people in mental health crisis. My first incident involved a Hispanic male armed with a pistol. I learned a significant amount from that single incident: so much, in fact, that I made the decision to join the Houston Police Department's Hostage Negotiation Team. The techniques I have learned over the years can be applicable to almost anyone, at any time, in just about any situation. In the following paragraphs, I will recount a few incidents in which I was involved and discuss the techniques used to end each the situation safely. Understand that this is not a specific "how-to guide" that may be applied to every situation. Instead, the use of these techniques will simply allow a person that becomes aware of a certain situation - to be able to attempt to stabilize the incident prior to first responders' arrival.

    Laura Streyffeler Mental Health Expert PhotoLaura Streyffeler, PhD, is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress specializing in individual, couples and family psychotherapy.

    Dr. Streyffeler believes that an being an expert means not only having education, knowledge, and experience , but integrity as well. She wants for you to understand that being an expert in domestic violence, does not mean being an expert only for victims, but for truth.

    As an expert, Dr. Streyffeler is able to discern between those who are truly victims and those who are claiming to be victims in order to get a ‘leg up’ in the court process. Sadly, all too often non-victims use domestic violence allegations, when going through a divorce (or other legal matter), in order to manipulate the court (i.e. attorneys, mental health professionals/ parenting evaluators, judicial outcome).

    “Guns for hire” are not experts. They are people who use their credentials and experience to financially prey on those struggling in the legal system. “Guns for hire” often make sure that their opinion matches the retainer, even if it doesn’t fully match the facts. Dr. Streyffeler will only accept cases that she believes her expert testimony (and/or consultation) will bring justice, not just dollars.

    Dr. Streyffeler provides both forensic and victim related expert witness testimony in both and criminal and civil court cases. She has provided trial consulting services to the State Attorney offices throughout Florida. She has testified and consulted in battery and murder cases on the issue of Domestic Violence, Battered Spouse Syndrome, and/or Sexual Violence. Dr. Streyffeler has also provided forensic services in civil court cases on behalf of numerous victims of domestic violence who are or have been victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault.

    In addition to being a Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress and a Diplomate of the National Center of Crisis Management, in Collaboration with the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress, Dr. Streyffeler is certified as an expert in both domestic violence and forensic counseling by the National Association of Forensic Counselors.
