Assessing and Managing Risk of Violence on Campus and in the Workplace
with the WAVR-21 V3
Date: November 1, 2022
Speaker: Stephen White, Ph.D.
This one-day introduction to using the WAVR-21, co-developed by Dr. White and Dr. Reid Meloy, will focus on the practical application of the instrument, using case studies and interactive exercises to illustrate the relationship of the factors on the WAVR to violence risk. The instrument is an evidence-based “SPJ” (structured professional judgment guide) for use by multi-disciplinary teams and practitioners in work and campus settings, and is increasingly recognized as the go-to SPJ for these settings. Dr. White will explain how case data is integrated with professional or clinical judgment, informing the many challenging case management decisions that threat assessors must make, and the do’s and don’ts of strategic interventions. The steps on the pathway to targeted violence will be discussed, as well as the motives, commonalities, and differences among perpetrators who choose violence.

Advanced Threat Assessment and Threat Management: Front Line Defense for Evolving Threats
Date: November 2-3, 2022
