An experiential, scenario-based course designed to improve situational awareness and decision-making skills in situations characterized by uncertainty, unpredictability, changeability, time pressure, and potential danger—with an emphasis on de-escalation and use-of-force decisions. After an introductory lesson, you will go through a series of eight ShadowBox decision exercises in each of which you will be required to make multiple assessments and decisions. Then you will get to compare your answers to a panel of recognized experts to learn from their experience. The objective is to build up your experience base, allowing you to recognize patterns more quickly.
