Course Description:

This seminar explores developing a Threat Assessment and Management Team (a multi discipline team to assess the behaviors of workers, clients, students, and visitors that may be pre incident indicators of workplace violence).

Topics that will be covered: 
- History of Threat Assessment Teams (Case Studies) 
- Typology of violence (Developed by the FBI)
