Critical Dynamics™ leverages and incorporates cutting-edge Force Science clinical and academic research and evidence-based studies regarding the science of human learning and human performance, along with andragogical best practices into the development of each and every training curriculum offered. Moreover, the techniques and tactics instructed result from a never-ending process of researching the results of their practical application in actual duty (law enforcement) and defensive (private citizen) use-of-force engagements.  A significant number of Critical Dynamics’ staff are directly involved in course creation and content development for state and national-level law enforcement training academies and contract security firms.  As such, courses developed by and delivered through Critical Dynamics™ utilize both scaffolded and interleaved instructional methodologies, with emphasis on the staging of 'desirable difficulties,' thereby encouraging the development of the student's recognition-primed and adaptive decision-making skills through the induction of 'effortful retrieval' learning techniques. Crucial aspects of the curriculum are primed prior to and boosted throughout the training sessions to reinforce and promote consolidation into the brain’s long-term procedural memory and increase the transference of materials learned into critical arenas of performance while maximizing opportunities for motor learning and adaptive decision-making development.  Our core goal is to advance the standards of use-of-force training by leveraging cutting-edge research to enhance and increase both officer and public safety.
