Welcome back everybody to the conclusion of my interview with the “Cop Doc” Dr. Ellen Kirschman.  

For over four decades, Dr. Ellen Kirschman's specialty has been treating first responders, cops, firefighters, and their families who are suffering with work-related traumatic stress.

Dr. Kirschman is also an award-winning and best-selling author of fiction and non-fiction. She is best known for the gold standard book for cops and their families, “I Love a Cop: What Police Families Need to Know” along with “Counseling Cops: What Clinicians Need to Know” and “I Love a Fire Fighter: What the Family Needs to Know.”
