LIVE VIRTUAL Violence Threat Assessment Planning and Response

Apr 27, 2021 (9:00 AM - 4:00 PM Central Time)

Online Live Virtual

Trainer: Janelle Jackiw

Price: $249.00 CAD (regular rate) + tax

Workshop Description

This is a live virtual event using Zoom, an online meeting platform. Please check system requirements prior to registering.

Offered through Crisis and Trauma Resource Institute

After a violent incident, it is not uncommon to find that people were aware of clues that violence was being planned. This is because most violent incidents often follow an evolutionary process where signs and indicators can be seen. Yet, without a clearly defined process to gather information and assess the situation, violence prevention is extremely difficult. This workshop provides a communication and decision-making model to help businesses, schools, organizations, and communities become more effective in their management of threats. Participants will learn strategies to help them identify, assess, and manage individuals who may be escalating towards violence.
