    The Bulletproof Mind
    By: Col. Grossman

    Dave Grossman
    Lt. Colonel, U.S. Army (ret.)

    Lt. Col. Dave Grossman is an internationally recognized scholar, author, soldier, and speaker who is one of the world’s foremost experts in the field of human aggression and the roots of violence and violent crime.

    Col. Grossman was a West Point psychology professor, Professor of Military Science, and an Army Ranger who has combined his experiences to become the founder of a new field of scientific endeavor, which has been termed “killology.” In this new field Col. Grossman has made revolutionary new contributions to our understanding of killing in war, the psychological costs of war, the root causes of the current "virus" of violent crime that is raging around the world, and the process of healing the victims of violence, in war and peace.

    He is the author of On Killing, which was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize; has been translated into Japanese, Korean, and German; is on the US Marine Corps Commandant’s Required Reading List; and is required reading at the FBI academy and numerous other academies and colleges. Col. Grossman co-authored Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill: A Call to Action Against TV, Movie and Video Game Violence, which has been translated into Norwegian and German, and has received international acclaim. Col. Grossman’s next book was On Combat, which has also placed on the US Marine Corps Commandant’s Required Reading List and is translated into Japanese and Korean. His most recent book is Warrior Mindset, which applies sport psychology and performance psychology to military and law enforcement.

    Col. Grossman has been called upon to write the entry on “Aggression and Violence” in the Oxford Companion to American Military History, three entries in the Academic Press Encyclopedia of Violence and numerous entries in scholarly journals, to include the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy.

    He has presented papers before the national conventions of the American Medical Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association, and the American Academy of Pediatrics.

    He has presented to over 100 different colleges and universities world-wide, and he has trained educators and law enforcement professional, in the field of school safety, at the state and regional level, in all 50 states and over a dozen foreign nations.

    He helped train mental health professionals after the Jonesboro school shootings, and he was also involved in counseling or court cases in the aftermath of the Paducah, Springfield, Littleton, Virginia Tech, and Nickel Mines, PA Amish school shootings.

    He has been an expert witness and consultant in state and Federal courts, to include serving on the prosecution team in UNITED STATES vs. TIMOTHY MCVEIGH.

    He has testified before U.S. Senate and Congressional committees and numerous state legislatures, and he and his research have been cited in a national address by the President of the United States.

    Col. Grossman is an Airborne Ranger infantry officer, and a prior-service sergeant and paratrooper, with over 23 years of experience in leading U.S. soldiers worldwide. He retired from the Army in February 1998 and has devoted himself full-time to teaching, writing, speaking, and research. Today he is the director of the Killology Research Group, and in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks he is on the road almost 300 days a year, training elite military and law enforcement organizations worldwide about the reality of combat.

    Course objectives:

    To do, for the mind and the spirit, what body armor does for the torso.


    • A new era of ‘record’ body counts in international and domestic terrorism
    • Salient historical events that may influence terrorist behavior
    • The possibility of school violence, and school/workplace violence prevention
    • A virus of violence in America and world-wide, its causes, and its effect
    • The psychological cost of conflict
    • The physiology and psychology of a conflict situation
    • PTSD: What is it and how to prevent it
    • The resistance to killing in every healthy human
    • Non-firers throughout history
    • A revolution in combat: Use of training to overcome the resistance to killing
    • Training kids to kill: The virus of violence and how kids are being enabled to kill
    • Survival after the battle and in the years to come

    To address your concern, here is RFI's stance. We are a training company and follow the laws of Michigan when it comes to the lawful carry of firearms in the state. We expect all students to do the same, no matter the course we are offering, or hosting. If you have concerns, please refer to the Michigan State Police website, or contact a legal entity to assist.
