Survival mentality : the psychology of staying alive

Zarse, Nancy, (on-screen presenter.). Teaching Company, (production company,, film distributor.).

The latest research shows that people almost never "rise to the occasion" when faced with a life-threatening challenge, regardless of how often we hear that phrase. Instead, as Professor Nancy Zarse explains in the 12 empowering lectures of Survival Mentality: The Psychology of Staying Alive, people generally revert to their lowest level of training and preparation. And Professor Zarse knows this firsthand. She brings not only her academic knowledge, consulting experience with the FBI, hostage negotiation experience, and more, but also her personal experience fighting for her life in unexpected and dangerous situations.
