This on-demand professional training program on the Multi-Level Guidelines Version 2 (MLG-V2) is presented by Stephen D. Hart, PhD in partnership with Protect International Risk and Safety Services.

Group-based violence (including organized crime, hate crime, and gang violence) is a prevalent and a serious international problem and it is critical that professionals engage in best practices to prevent future incidents and tragedies.

 This program is the official launch of the newest version of the Multi-Level Guidelines (MLG), a  structured professional judgement guideline for assessing and managing risk for group based violence. Significant updates have been made to the guidelines, reflecting advances related to research, practice and the law and incorporating feedback from diverse professionals around the world.

This program is designed for professionals whose work involves risk assessment and management, including those working in criminal justice, security, victim services, forensic mental health, civil mental health, general health care, social services, human resources, occupational health and safety, and legal services.
