The headlines seem to come nonstop. When there is a new incident of targeted violence – a school shooting, a hospital shooting, we are bereft along with the victims. Often, people turn to mental
health professionals to solve the problems. However, we are not taught about violence in our
professional programs. The task can seem immense. However, the field of threat assessment and management has decades of research and practice. We can follow the research, follow a plan, and
prevent most acts of targeted violence if we work together.
This one day primer will expose you to the basics of threat assessment and management from the perspective of a mental health provider. Practitioners will leave understanding the cornerstones of TAM and the building blocks of processing a threat as a practitioner or as part of a threat assessment team.
