The Original Tactical Biopsychology Class
is the original body language class and the most popular CBLTAC seminar. "Fundamental
Body Language" is based upon the physiological "fight, flight, or comply (FFC)
mechanism" and is considered to be the prerequisite for the other classes
available, from tactical communications to combat.
As a stand alone
class, "Fundamental Body Language" provides insight into the physiology and psychology
of both the learner and the learner's interactions with other people.
This is a fast paced four hour class divided into two distinct
halves. The first half explains the human physiological responses to stress,
from simply lying or during the involvement of a critical life threatening
The second half of the class outlines specific FFC
indicators. These indicators are divided into seven categories: body posture,
hand movements, eyes, facial, body function, vocal, and proxemics. Each
indicator is explained and its origin and association with FFC is explained.
There are over 50 indicators explained in all.
This class is very
informative and very entertaining with an array of multimedia to engage every
type of learner. The presenter interacts heavily with the audience. "Fundamental
Body Language" is California Peace Officer Standards and Training
(P.O.S.T.) certified, under "Tactical Communications", and Colorado Peace
Officer Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.) certified, under "Officer Safety."
This class has been presented to public safety professionals at every
level of government, including city, county, state, and federal entities. This
class has also been presented to citizens as a seminar. This class won the 2008
Annual Reserve Peace Officer Conference's "Best Class" award.
Language" suits public safety professionals, especially employees who are not
armed, and/or who work in very rural areas with limited support in the event of
a critical incident. The presentation provides the base knowledge for people to
understand what happens to a person under acute stress. This leads to a further
understanding of how to deal with people throughout the stress spectrum, from
verbally abusive to an actual attack.
This class is also appropriate for
corporate professionals who have a need to further understand their clients
during high pressure business meetings or negotiations. A wealth of knowledge
can be obtained just from observing another person. "Fundamental Body Language"
enhances safety, awareness, and predictability.
While this is a stand
alone class, CBLTAC has designed "Fundamental Body Language" to be a direct prerequisite
for all of the combatives seminars as well as "Para-Language", "Controlling
Rapport", and "Express Interrogation" or "Rapport-Based
Often, people leave "Fundamental Body Language" with a new
perspective about their interactions in public. When the audience leaves
this class, they are reminded of the darker side of body language.
Body Language" is the official introductory class to any of our other classes. It is available in the popular 4 hour format or the more detailed and informative 8 hour format.
