Coping with the Stress of First Responder Life
A traumatic way of life: First responders have the incredibly difficult job of running toward danger while the rest of us run away. No training can prepare them for what they will see and endure. Kim Colegrove understands what it’s like to watch someone go through that. After 30 years in law enforcement, her husband took his own life. This agonizing experience opened Kim’s eyes to the desperate need for an effective form of stress-relief and support for first responders.
The power of meditation: No matter our profession, taking care of our mental health needs to be a priority. For first responders like cops and EMTs, ensuring that their heads are in a healthy place is crucial because each day can bring them face-to-face with another trauma. With 40 years of experience, Kim Colegrove is here to share with readers that there is a viable and practical resource for first responders found in meditation.
A source of hope: In 2017, Kim founded The PauseFirst Project, Mindfulness for First Responders. Kim offers the PauseFirst block of training to organizations across the country. She teaches techniques that help reduce stress, regulate emotion, and improve overall health and well-being. Colegrove’s work to bring awareness is a tribute to both her husband and the countless other first responders who struggle with the realities of their jobs.
Readers of Kim Colegrove’s Mindfulness for Warriors will find…
- Evidence-based practices to help first responders and their families deal with stress
- Interviews with first responders who share their stories of overcoming, surviving, and thriving
- Colegrove’s own raw and intimate story of her husband’s troubles and how she continues each day fighting in his memory
Readers who have looked for encouragement messages and aid in books like Bulletproof Spirit, Bullets in the Washing Machine, and I Love a Cop (Third Edition) will find a further source of healing in Mindfulness for Warriors.

Get the Medical Help You Need
Leverage the system. Many know from experience that the medical system can be difficult to navigate. Take it from Randy Pherson, who struggled with a medical condition for five years before getting a proper diagnosis—and once he did, had to undergo a major surgery to save his life. Because of his experience, Pherson decided to help others facing similar situations. Using his background of analytics from the CIA, Pherson offers his readers precise, analytical techniques for using the system to their advantage.
Learn from the trials and triumphs of others. As traumatic as Pherson’s situation was, it is not an isolated experience. Pherson cites a network of individuals who have tried, both successfully and unsuccessfully, to navigate the medical system. By using their stories as examples, Pherson gives value to their experiences, using the lessons learned to potentially save the lives of others.
Get the help you need and deserve. Because of the sheer number of patients that doctors and medical staff see each day, it can be difficult to get the medical attention that you deserve. Learn how to better describe your pain and the specific questions to ask your doctor to get the proper medicine and treatment you need for your condition.
Take advantage of the advice Randy Pherson has to offer in his book, How to Get the Right Diagnosis, and find:
- Eighteen informative and applicable stories from others who have struggled with navigating the medical system
- Techniques to spur a correct diagnosis and obstacles to overcome when seeking treatment
- The right questions to ask to ensure you are getting the most accurate information
- Tips for building an effective partnership with your doctor
If self-help and medicine books such as How Doctors Think, Attending, and The Patient Will See You Now have been valuable to you, then Pherson’s How to Get the Right Diagnosis is the next book for you.
