    Police officers represent the front line in the service response to domestic violence. Law enforcement has a unique perspective on this all too common social problem. Officers are often asked to intervene in this life-long problem of citizens in a few minutes. Answering a domestic disturbance call is the second most dangerous call an officer can answer.

Maintaining a working and updated understanding of legal mandates regarding domestic violence is imperative to successful law enforcement.

    Instructor Biography

    Edgework founder Ellis Amdur received his B.A. in Psychology from Yale University in 1974, and his M.A. in Psychology from Seattle University in 1990. He is both a National Certified Counselor and a State Certified Child Mental Health Specialist. Since the late 1960s, Ellis has trained in various martial arts systems, spending thirteen of these years studying in Japan. Since his return to the United States in 1988, Ellis has worked in the field of crisis intervention.

    He has written a number of books on the verbal de-escalation of aggression and communication with mentally ill persons. His new book, The Thin Blue Lifeline, co-written with Sgt. John Hutchings of the Olympia Washington Police Department, is due to be released in the Spring of 2011.

    Ellis is a dynamic public speaker and trainer who presents his work throughout the United States and internationally. He is an experienced and well-known instructor for police officers in the de-escalation of mentally ill and aggressive individuals. His specialty is boots-on-the-ground, face-to-face encounters with the individuals of concern. He is fully aware that police officers must establish and maintain safety. Therefore, Ellis focuses on the recognition of patterns of behavior, rather than diagnosis.  His goal is for street officers to recognize in the subject's behaviors — regardless of cause — patterns that he or she can work with to fully calm problem individuals. Failing that, these verbal tactics can aid in establishing control at whatever force level is required.

    For a number of years, Ellis has presented at the Institute for the Prevention of In-Custody Deaths as well as the Canadian Institute for the Prevention of In-Custody Deaths regarding how to distinguish between Excited Delirium and psychotic episodes. He offers specific verbal de-escalation/control strategies to deal with either of these states. In addition, he teaches basic and advanced CIT classes for police, and conducts specialized courses for tactical and hostage/crisis negotiation teams.

    Ellis Amdur is noted for his sometimes outrageous humor as well as his profound breadth of knowledge. His vivid descriptions of aggressive and mentally ill people and his true-to-life role playing of these behaviors give participants an almost first-hand experience of facing the real individuals in question
