Drs. Stephen White and Reid Meloy will conduct their two-day workshop on
The Assessment and Management of Workplace & Campus Violence Risk
March 1st & 2nd Calgary
Hosted by the Behavioural Sciences Unit of the Calgary Police Services
March 23rd & 24th Orlando
to be held at Disney World

May 16th & 17th Chicago

These dynamic two-day workshops offer a blend of didactic and video case presentations, case vignette practice, and focused discussion of common issues. Topics addressed include targeted violence dynamics, the “pathway to violence”, stalking, mental illness and violence, intimate partner violence, psychopathy and bullying, and the lone actor terrorist, as these are encountered in workplace and campus contexts. As always we will include updates on research and recent, illuminating cases.
Attendees will be thoroughly acquainted with the “WAVR-21 V3” -the Worksheet and “Grid”, a new comprehensive Intake and Documentation form, and how to integrate the WAVR-21 into dynamic threat case management.
Who may attend: The workshop is open to members of threat management teams – typically representatives from corporate and campus security, legal, human resources/labor relations, mental health, student judicial affairs, residence deans, campus police, and EAP. Welcome also are other law enforcement and forensic and mental health professionals interested in improving their violence risk assessment skills.

Discounts: Early bird registration and ATAP/CATAP member discounts will be offered for all workshops.
