Exclamation July 10th 2013, 09:02 PM

Okay so since my dad is practically forcing me into this teen/adult police program then I'm going to have to learn to be a REALLY good actress.

So right now, we're doing scenarios...where I have to yell "Open up this is the police!" and go into this building and find the suspect and once i find the suspect , I have tell him to get up and tell him why he is under arrest and arrest him.

so I'm good at the physical parts such as putting him in handcuffs but.....I cannot Yell.....or direct order.....because It makes me feel really awkward yelling in front of people because everybody is watching you and you know....and yelling "Open up this is the police!"
is just....I don't know if i can do it properly.

anyways....Yeah...How do you be more aggressive or how do you yell without feeling awkward?

umm anyone?

Hi there,

First of all, please don't make multiple posts in a row just to bump the thread. Try to be patient, you'll get responses.

Secondly, I think it just takes practice, such as a shy person trying to be more outgoing. Step out of your comfort zone & do it anyways, even if you're unsure of yourself, & in time, you'll feel more confident.

This is urgent....I promise you and I didn't make 'multiple posts'
that's a complete understatement. I made one other add on.

I need an answer quickly because I dont have much time.
But thank you anyways

I had this problem too, hence why I stopped doing martial arts. I just couldn't get aggressive enough.

My only suggestion is to think about something that makes you angry; you're more likely to feel aggressive and want to shout then.

There is a difference between being aggressive and being assertive. I am sure you mean you want to learn the latter.

You need to keep in the mind the seriousness of your profession. You need to gain a confidence in yourself and a trust in your fellow coworkers. Nothing is going to happen to you in training, so this is where you practice your confidence. Just copy the instructor and follow the rules.

You don't want to be aggressive because anger is not the emotion you want to express. You want to show your in control and calm headed. Being able to yell out a command does not involve anger. Maybe that is where you are are having trouble.

And if all else fails, talk to your instructors on ways to be more confident in your position. As you complete the training it will be easier. You are still learning and it takes practice.

Re: How to be aggressive? - July 20th 2013, 06:11 PM

I did a citizen's police academy for fun once and it was hard for me to be serious except in real situations that weren't really serious most of the time.

Even when I am working, it can be hard to be serious most of the time however I found when the situation calls for it, it is a lot easier. When I was starting an IV with a newer nurse who wasn't sure where the vein was so I was doing it, I was telling a girl who was there for a psych eval not to move an inch because she already messed up two IV starts by the newer nurse. I sounded mean and that's not the type of person I am. However, it was important we get an IV because we weren't entirely sure what was going on at the moment.

Sometimes when I worked the squad, I had to be in back because I was a higher level. So that guy who wants to rip my throat out? Yeah, I had to make him sit his ass down on the stretcher and not to touch a single thing. Or I had to be the one to give the shot in the ass with four or five people holding his limbs.

In a real situation, you'll be surprised at what you can do to get the job done, but it's best if you train for them. Also talking yourself up can be important too. Like you got this. You have to do this. You can do this.
