Tragedies, including those at Fort Hood, Texas, Virginia Tech, WDBJ News Station and Mercy Hospital in Chicago, deliver painful lessons. Specifically, they underscore the point that behavioral threat assessments and threat assessment teams are critical to preventing targeted acts of violence. Join a threat and violence prevention expert to examine the threat assessment and prevention best practices that were absent in these highly-publicized incidents. Walk through the practical steps that can ensure that threat assessment teams and policies are equipped to promote prevention and, potentially, save lives.
