Event description


InfraGard Los Angeles & C-T Watch, Inc Present:


Instructor 1: Former USMC Combat Hunter Program Instructor & Behavioral Recognition Lead

Instructor 2: CIA Operations Officer (retired)

Derived from the US Military's ASAT training this 4-hour course on advanced situational awareness will teach attendees about the human sensory system (five senses and the brain), the six domains of human behavior (heuristics, biometrics, kinesics, proxemics, geographics and atmospherics), principles of GSA (human pace, sign recognition), enhanced observation (why we see things, why we don’t see things, signatures and cues), how to establish a baseline (an initial set of critical observations to confirm the norm of an area), critical thinking (problem-solving, anomaly-detection), decision-making (legal/moral/ethical, observe-orient-decide-act loop, ASA algorithm), how to think like the enemy and how to employ this knowledge and experience to be "left-of-bang."

This course was specifically designed to coincide with Pre-Incident Indicators (PII's) training in order to combine both situational awareness and spotting PII's through various exercises throughout the training. The following topics will be covered:

Introduction to Behavior Analysis

  • Why we create patterns and habits

  • Exploiting patterns and habits

  • Where these behaviors come from

  • Left of Bang Mindset

  • B + A = D

Physiological Responses to Stress

  • The body's response to stimulus

  • You can mask but you cannot stop them

  • Observing for violence before it happens

The Distances We Keep

  • What distance communicates

  • Proximity pulling and pushing

  • Rock in the Pond Theory

Kinesics (Non-Verbals)

  • The power of non-verbals

  • Kinesic slips and Deception

  • Bypassing the thinking brain

Speeding Up Your Decision-Making

  • The Clusters

Course will be highly interactive and will test the attendee's level of situational awareness.
