Threat Management

This course discusses the legal, psychological, criminal, and case management areas of practice related to managing ongoing risk.

This course focuses on challenges often encountered following the assessment of violence risk.

From managing affective, emotionally driven violence to responding to potential targeted or predatory violence, the presenters will discuss the larger challenges related to the oversight and ongoing supervision and treatment of those who remain at the institution with a significant risk profile.

Covering closed communities and marginalized populations, the presenter(s) will address the unique challenges and opportunities to build rapport and tie interventions to specific populations including: individuals with mental illness, those with addictions, marginalized communities, non-traditional students, LGBTQ+, those with suicidal or self-injurious behaviors, athletes, fraternity and sorority life members, and individuals struggling with anger and impulse control.

Special conditions will also be reviewed such as: working with suspended and expelled students, the use of private detectives and fusion centers, return to campus and the public relations issues when individuals show up at board meetings or talk to the press.

In this course, you will:

  • Overcome challenges related to the ongoing management of heightened risk levels following a violence risk assessment
  • Review how to adjust specific interventions to match the needs of individuals from closed communities and marginalized groups
  • Discuss the legal concerns related to the separation and/or ongoing management of those with increased risk levels
