Upcoming Workshops In 2017 with
the New WAVR-21 Third Edition

Drs. Stephen White and Reid Meloy will conduct their two-day workshop on

The Assessment and Management of Workplace & Campus Violence Risk

November 30th to December 1st Mountain View, CA
Hosted by Intuit

This dynamic two-day workshops offer a blend of didactic and video case presentations, case vignette practice, and focused discussion of common issues.  Topics addressed include targeted violence dynamics, the “pathway to violence”, stalking, mental illness and violence, intimate partner violence, psychopathy and bullying, and the lone actor terrorist, as these are encountered in workplace and campus contexts. As always we will include updates on research and recent, illuminating cases.

Attendees will be thoroughly acquainted with the “WAVR-21 V3″ -the Worksheet and “Grid”, a new comprehensive Intake and Documentation form, and how to integrate the WAVR-21 into dynamic threat case management.

Who may attend: The workshop is open to members of threat management teams – typically representatives from corporate and campus security, legal, human resources/labor relations, mental health, student judicial affairs, residence deans, campus police, and EAP. Welcome also are other law enforcement and forensic and mental health professionals interested in improving their violence risk assessment skills.
