Event Description

Threat Assessment and Management of Targeted Violence (FOR-0002)

This two-day course examines those individuals who communicate threats or other inappropriate communications or exhibit threatening behaviors to others, be they political or public figures, celebrities, schools, the workplace or just “average citizens”.  This includes those who are referred to as the “lone-actor terrorist” or the “violent true believer,” who are considered a major national security threat in the United States.

Identification of the offender, his motivation, evidence of mental illness and the role it plays in targeted violence are examined with an emphasis is identifying the difference between those who make threats and those who pose a threat.

Threat management is developing strategies to minimize the risk and to prevent such violence, rather than an effort in prediction. Threat assessment and management distinguishes those individuals who have a legally protect right to have extreme beliefs from those who intend to act violently on their beliefs.

This course includes specific case studies such as stalking/threatening political and media persons, mentally ill threateners, workplace violence, anti-government “true believers” and the “school shooter.”
