Attorney Scott Lewis, Dr. Brian Van Brunt, and Officer Jeff Solomon will host two 90-minute sessions to finalize your Looking Glass Behavioral Threat Assessment training.  This session will focus on taking the theory learned in Part 1 and honing your skills in conducting an actual case-assessment. Attendees will leave with confidence in analyzing key elements of social media and written threats, along with gaining practical experience in report writing.

Three Case Studies in Looking Glass (10am – 11:30am PST)
Upon signing up for this training, you will be given three case studies to complete. Your results will be graded by one of the course instructors and returned to you with comments and feedback. Each case will include a brief contextual narrative and include details related to social media, written threat and creative writing. To receive feedback from the instructors, the cases must be turned in by Friday July 10th. Cases submitted after this date will be graded and given feedback but may not be returned prior to the course.

Three Case Reports using Looking Glass (12:00pm – 1:30pm PST)
The instructors will provide three reports for each case written from a legal, psychological and law enforcement perspective. Report techniques from each of these areas of expertise will be shared and the intersectionality of these reporting styles will be discussed. Common “do’s” and “don’ts” for reporting will be discussed and opportunities for questions will be provided.
