This one day event will contain state of the science information about threat assessment and threat management in the workplace utilizing the WAVR-21, a structured professional guide developed by the presenters. This is a "can't miss" event for any individual working in a profession which requires the evaluation of risk of violence and/or the management of the subject of a risk based investigation, including law enforcement, security, mental health, education, human resources, corporate administrators, etc. While this program will be presented at a high level, those with no experience in threat assessment and threat management will derive a significant amount of information by attending.

This two day workshop will provide the most up to date information on threat assessment and threat management. Taught by Dr. Reid Meloy, a leading expert in the field, this program will showcase the threat assessment process, look at the warning behaviors seen prior to targeted violence, summarize what we know about mass murderers, examine ideologically driven (terrorist) acts, the stalking of public figures and prior sexual intimates, look at new research on threats, describe the WAVR-21 (Workplace Assessment of Violence Risk) and its contribution to workplace and campus threats, consider the “dark triad” of targeted violence, present a factual look at mental illness and violence risk, and describe contemporary risk management strategies. All allied professions to the threat assessment process are invited to attend.
