February 26-27, 2020
Drs. Stephen White and Reid Meloy
will conduct their two-day workshop on
The Assessment and Management
of Workplace & Campus
Violence Risk with the WAVR-21 V3
This dynamic two-day workshop offers a blend of didactic material and video case presentations, case vignette practice, research updates, and focused discussion of common issues.
Now an annual event: A Bay Area WAVR-21 winter workshop, bringing together multi-disciplinary threat assessment practitioners from around North America and beyond. Please come and celebrate with us the first of these annual workshops, networking and benchmarking with fellow professionals.
Attendees will be thoroughly acquainted with the WAVR-21 V3 – the Worksheet, Grid, and Intake and Documentation forms, and how to integrate WAVR-21 data into dynamic threat case management.
Continuing topics include targeted violence dynamics, the “pathway to violence,” stalking, mental illness and violence, intimate partner violence, psychopathy, bullying, interviewing strategies, integrating data with professional judgment, communication issues, managing fear, and common program and intervention obstacles.
Note: This workshop is sponsored by Work Trauma Services Inc. Other threat assessment and WAVR-21 workshops are scheduled for 2020 that will be sponsored by Specialized Training (specializedtraining.com).
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. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer continuing education credits, but attendees will be given a signed certificate of completion.
THE WAVR-21 V3:
First published in 2007 and now in its third edition, the WAVR-21 includes 21 empirically based criteria for assessing different forms of workplace and campus violence risk. Studies have demonstrated good to excellent inter-rater agreement for the WAVR-21 summary ratings of level of risk and potential for serious injury. Recent validation research at the University of Nebraska concluded that, “The WAVR-21 V3 would be a useful risk assessment measure of workplace violence in corporate organizations, educational environments, and government agencies. The findings were well within the range of results for validity studies of other violence risk structured professional judgment guides.”
THE WAVR-21 MANUAL:
The WAVR-21 3rd edition manual is now available for purchase. Attendees are encouraged to purchase beforehand and bring their copy of the new manual, or a previous edition of the WAVR-21. The 3rd edition manual can be purchased directly from the publisher by going to http://specializedtraining.
