This one-day training is split into two halves, the morning session led by Dr. Laura Guy, and the afternoon with SSA Molly Amman.

 

Morning

Professionals in various fields, such as police, mental health, education, and security, must conduct threat assessments as part of their job or as a matter of law. In this workshop, an overview of key conceptual and historical issues in the field of threat assessment will be reviewed, and basic principles and procedural issues in threat assessment and management will be discussed in more depth. Attendees will learn about issues related to conducting interviews, obtaining and reviewing collateral sources of information, using analytic or risk assessment tools, communicating about risk for targeted violence, and managing individuals who are believed to pose a violence risk.

 

Afternoon

During the afternoon session, SSA Amman will present the audience with a recent case study, featuring investigative actions from initial report through execution of a cohesive threat management strategy. Audience members will be able to hear the case from a joint law enforcement--threat management perspective and apply lessons learned to their own case work and experiences.
