Through the use of case studies and demonstration training videos, attendees in this course will learn how to conduct violence risk assessments. Violence risk assessments (VRAs) are non-clinical assessments designed to better understand an individual’s likelihood of engaging in violence or harm.
In this course, you will:
- Explore case studies and practical examples involving threats of harm to others.
- Apply a structured interview and objective assessment tool to conduct an assessment related to the risk an individual who poses for harm to others.
- Assess online and written content for potential threatening or dangerous statements.
Visit the National Association for Behavioral Intervention and Threat Assessment (NABITA) website for more information.
