How to withstand torture

Tried googling "withstanding torture," "surviving torture," "how to survive torture," etc.

I'm looking for websites, books, etc. that detail specific techniques used to withstand torture. Everything I've found on Google is geared towards recovery from past torture/ritual abuse, rather than techniques used while torture is taking place to stay sane. I know that military personnel are taught this kind of thing, but I can't seem to find a resource that gives details on what they are taught.

I've got a character who is an experienced spy, and he is waterboarded and interrogated/emotionally abused early on in my story. I want to establish how horrific the torture is, but I also want him to come across as someone who's been tortured before and knows how to deal with it.

Any help would be appreciated!
