Behavioral Threat Recognition and Prevention (BTRAP) and Crowd Manager Training (Afternoon Session)

**These classes will be combined to address critical issues for the upcoming holidays where both sets of skills will be necessary**

Registration closes at noon, November 15, 2019

Behavioral Threat Recognition and Prevention (BTRAP is a four (4) hour seminar that introduces participants to a conceptually sound, operationally relevant, sustainable method of assessing those on a pathway to targeted violence. Participants will learn techniques and methodologies designed to improve community safety and establish a collaborative and comprehensive community safety net. Case examples of successful outcomes achieved through collaboration and partnerships with public and private stakeholders will illustrate the benefits of an informed and integrated community with a common mission.

Dr. Tony Beliz, Ph.D. is a licensed clinical and forensic psychologist. He has lectured nationally and internationally on Behavioral Threat Assessment, Targeted School Violence, Emerging Trends in Targeted Violence, and Trauma Event Management. He currently is a consultant to private and public threat management teams. Dr. Beliz retired in 2014 after 14 years as Deputy Director, Emergency Outreach Bureau, County of Los Angeles Department of Mental Health (LACDMH), and developed various field-based programs focused on critical incidents and psychiatric emergencies in Los Angeles County. Teams responded to incidents such as the 2013 LAX shooting, barricade or hostage situations, acutely suicidal or homicidal persons, and celebrity or high-profile stalkers or persons-of-interest. A lecture worldwide, with extensive "expert" appearances in the media, U.S. and overseas, Dr. Beliz is one of the foremost authorities on this topic, and an amazing instructor.
