About the Author

Ellis Amdur balances two careers, that as a crisis intervention specialist, through his company, Edgework and as a 50+ year practitioner of traditional Japanese martial arts. His writing meets right in the middle. Through his company, Edgework Books, he has self-published ten books on the verbal de-escalation of aggression and calming of agitated mentally ill people, many co-written with a subject matter expert in the field, one each for those in the social services personnel, for hospitals, for families, for police officers, for firefighters and EMTs, for parole/probation officers, for 911 call-takers, for security guards, correctional officers in a jail setting and for worksite safety (HR, threat assessment professionals, etc), some co-written. In addition, he has released a video and instructional book on verbal de-escalation for the armed citizen, through the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA).
Amdur has also published Body and Soul: Toward a Radical Intersubjectivity in Psychotherapy, a combination of a lyrical description of how phenomenology and dialogal philosophy can be applied to psychotherapy, followed by two heart-wrenching accounts showing how these abstract principles are embodied in the real world; The Coordinator: Managing High-Risk, High-Consequence Social Interactions in an Unfamiliar Environment, and two volumes on crisis/hostage negotiation, with Shapeshifting: Effective Scenario Training for Hostage Negotiation Teams, co-written with Fmr. Sgt. Lis Eddy.
He has written and published three books on martial arts, the iconoclastic Dueling with Osensei: Old School, a work on classical martial traditions and most recently, Hidden in Plain Sight, on esoteric knowledge within various Japanese martial traditions. All three of these books, in revised, expanded editions are published by Freelance Academy Press.
Along with authors Neal Stephenson, Charles Mann & Mark Teppo and artists Robert Sammelin and Dean Kotz, Ellis has released the Jet City Comics graphic novel, the Cimmaronin.
Finally, Amdur published his first novel, The Girl with the Face of the Moon. He is currently working on his second novel.
His books are considered unique in that he uses his own experiences, often hair-raising or outrageous, as illustrations of the principles about which he writes, but it is also backed by solid research, and boots-on-the-ground experience.
RET. SGT. LISABETH EDDY- Lis obtained a BA in Speech-Communications from the University of Washington, and was hired by the Seattle Police department as an officer in 1979. She retired after thirty-one years of service. As a police officer, she worked over 10 years in the patrol division, as well as working as an officer-dispatcher in the communications division. In 1988 Lis was assigned to the basic training division, where she taught Criminal Law. In 1992, Lis was promoted, and went back to patrol as a sergeant. In addition to being a patrol supervisor, and a Community Policing Team supervisor, she served in the Internal Investigations Division and as a Detective Sergeant in the Domestic Violence Unit. In addition to these regular assigned duties, Lis was a member of the Hostage Negotiations Team, since 1981, and became the team leader in 1992. As a Hostage Negotiator, Lis has been involved in numerous incidents involving persons in crisis. She has attended basic and advanced hostage negotiators school, in addition to annual training seminars in negotiating crisis situations. Lis was selected to attend the two week Crisis Negotiations School, sponsored by the FBI in Quantico, VA. Because of her involvement with the Hostage Negotiations Team, and her experience in dealing with persons in crisis, Lis was chosen to be a member of the committee that developed and implemented the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) program on the Seattle Police Department in 1997. This unit trains officers on suggestions and options to use when encountering persons who are in crisis due to emotional disturbance or mental illness. Lis was selected to be the CIT coordinator in January of 2000. In 2002, Lis received the Jefferson Award for her contributions to the community in working to assist mentally ill persons to reduce their involvement with the police, and ensure their safety, and the safety of the community. She was recognized in 2003 by Good Housekeeping magazine, as one of the recipients of their annual Women in Government awards. Lis is considered to be a nationally recognized expert on issues involving police response to dealing with the mentally ill. She has participated in national panels exploring best practices (PERF) involving police interactions with both mentally ill individuals as well as working effectively with the mental health system. She has been consulted as a subject matter expert the United States Department of Justice concern- ing the effective utilization of resources in setting up CIT programs. Lis has participated internationally, as well, having presented at Police/Mental Health conferences in England and Australia.
