This session describes violence risk assessment, which applies to school violence, mass casualty violence, and terrorism. Since there is no profile for a shooter, participants will learn to base their assessment on behavior. Risk factors and warning signs of violence will be discussed as well as signs of escalation and protective factors. The Pathway to Intended Violence will be covered as well as the importance of basing the assessment on known facts and behaviors. The challenges of assessing violence will be explored, including reporting concerns and the Threat Assessment Team. Participants will learn to ask, is there movement from thought to action?
