Workshop: Advanced Threat Assessment and Management

June 24, 2022 | 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM Pacific
The live professional training program on Advanced Threat Assessment and Management is presented by Kostas A. Katsavdakis, PhD, ABPP in partnership with the American Board of Forensic Psychology (AAFP).
This program focuses on threat assessment for targeted or intended violence. Content includes differences between threat assessment and more traditional violence risk assessment, data on affective (reactive) v. predatory (instrumental) violence, a theoretical typology of warning behaviors--accelerating patterns of risk in such cases--and some confirmatory empirical data, and specific findings from various domains of targeted violence, such as stalking, lone-actor attacks, radicalization, and domestic terrorism.
The program will include a review of the relevant language, ethnic, cultural, and racial differences applicable to the process of threat assessment. We will review several structured assessment methods to manage threats across a variety of settings. The program will identify emerging empirical research on threat assessment and review multiple management strategies tailored to the reduction of threats.
