About Survive Institute:

Debbie and Mike Gardner met in the Cincinnati Police Academy over 30 years ago. During their distinguished law enforcement careers, their training was extensive. Due to life-threatening personal challenges, they were forced to respectfully question traditional survival/personal safety concepts, which emphasized complication instead of focused simplicity. In a crisis, the Gardner’s learned that “less is more … but LESS must be RIGHT.” Since going “public” with their discoveries in 1982, their candid, straight forward yet healing information has empowered and inspired civilian and law enforcement audiences world-wide.

About the Center for Aggression Management:

The Center for Aggression Management was established in 1993 in response to a request from law enforcement leaders for more effective, lower impact methods for confronting aggressors and de-escalating aggression. Research and training in those areas brought our founder, John D. Byrnes, to the realization that workplace, campus and school violence could be prevented by applying methods developed by the Center for recognizing and managing aggression.
