Abstract:The FIRST training (Functional Intuitive Replication Scenario Training) has been developed to increase resilience. This study focusses on whether the FIRST training has an effect on the behavior of people in an unexpected, threatening situation. The main question of this study is: What effect does the FIRST training have on the behavior during an unexpected (ambush) situation? Behaviors which are observed are divided into flight-, freeze- and fight reactions. Almost all behaviors that are included in the schedule were visible in practice. The respondents after the training, the experimental group, showed more behaviors that are subdivided into the category ‘fight’. The respondents before the training, the control group, showed the most behaviors that are subdivided into the category ‘flight’. There is no sequence in which the behaviors are shown. There are only behaviors that are often shown in groups. The respondents before the training showed virtually no tactical responses. The respondents after the training showed more often a tactical response. A goal of the FIRST training is to reduce the time between the flinch reaction and the first tactical response. It seems that the time between the flinch reaction and the first tactical response decreased after the FIRST training.
