CONCEPT Professional Training and The Forensic Training Academy offer training on Violence Triage


TAMPA, Fla.May 3, 2016 — CONCEPT Professional Training, a global leader in online professional training in forensic mental health and the Forensic Training Academy, announced today they are partnering to host Summer Training Institute 2016 at John Jay College of Criminal Justice June 13 – 17, 2016. Attendees will participate in in-person workshops with internationally renowned experts in the forensic mental health field. Violence Triage is a 1-day workshop presented by Drs. Stephen Hart and Kelly Watt. Both Drs. Stephen Hart and Kelly Watt are experts in threat assessment, workplace violence and violence risk assessment.

This workshop will focus on principles of Violence Triage for prioritizing cases and actions. Skills for triaging violence are important to assist professionals and workplaces in fulfilling their professional obligations under statutory law, common law, and professional codes of ethics to screen for and respond to warning signs related to violence risk. Failure to do so could result in legal liability if actions failed to meet professional standards and resulted in harm to others.

The Violence Triage will help professionals and workplaces to make immediate decisions about receiving and assessing information concerning warning signs for violence risk, develop an action plan for resolution, and meet organizational reporting requirements. By using an evidence-based process to make these decisions, workplaces will be protecting themselves from potential liability and protecting others from future harm.
