This course will train students how to assess and respond to threats before they materialize. In our 16-hour (2 day) course, students will learn how to identify behaviors associated with targeted threat violence. Identifying pre-assaultive behaviors will allow students to create management strategies based on behavioral threat assessments. This will assist to limit targeted threat violence and mitigate risk factors. Behavioral Threat Assessment is a vital tool in predicting and stopping preventable crimes before they happen. Whether in the arena of active shooters, domestic violence, stalking, workplace violence, juvenile crimes or any number of violent crimes, this training will help students see the signs of what’s coming before it’s too late.
