This is a one-day training event in which the focus lies on one specific form of workplace violence: communicated threats.

People in the public eye and in high positions – such as representatives of organisations, political figures, directors of corporate business and celebrities – seem to be more at risk of becoming a victim of unwanted written communications. The identity of the perpetrator is not always known, and sometimes the victim receives multiple communications from the same person. Our clients often wonder whether this behaviour will escalate to more dangerous levels, if it will continue for long and what they can do to stop harassment?

This event will explain psychological and linguistic assessment techniques, psychological characteristics of perpetrators and methods of risk-assessment. Part of the program will be dedicated to offender profiling and how to translate acquired behavioural data to concrete investigative actions. Over the course of the day, case studies will be used to illustrate assessment and investigative methods.
