About this event

It’s not enough to do a good violence risk assessment, you MUST show your work!

  • Does your practice, department, school, or workplace have a cost effective, user-friendly, research-based system to document how you handle disruptive and dangerous behaviors and threats?
  • Do you have an approach to mitigate bias in decision making to ensure both the assessment of risk and the development of a risk mitigation plan are conducted in a culturally competent manner?
  • Are you able to have triage/gatekeeping system you can easily deploy on each case that comes to the BIT/CARE team?

Join Dr. Van Brunt, Jeff Solomon, and Nina Delgadillo as they share the how stop school and workplace shootings before they occur through violence risk and threat assessment. They will share how to do this through a two-step approach of first identifying risk through the Pathways triage expert system then assessing the risk with the DarkFox violence risk assessment tool. Pathways offers a user friendly, behaviorally based gateway screening for a variety of challenges related to mental illness, threats, and disruptive/dangerous behavior. The DarkFox violence risk assessment system is then used on higher concern threat to other scenarios. DarkFox offers police, counselors, BIT/CARE, and threat team members an easy-to-use system that develops a threat report covering the areas of vulnerability, negative thoughts, environmental stressors, suicidality, attack preparation, attack approach, and threat.

Visit pathwaystriage.com and darkfoxthreat.com for more information and an example case study, showing you how the tools will work for you.
