This on-demand professional training program on Specialized Violence – Intersecting Risks is presented by Kevin Douglas, Ph.D., LLB, in partnership with Protect International Risk and Safety Services.

This program focuses on the nature of intersecting risks for violence perpetration, victimization, suicide-related behavior, and self-harm. Often, when an individual is at risk for one of these adverse outcomes, he or she will be at risk for others as well.  Settings where multiple intersecting risks occur commonly include mental health, corrections, law enforcement, forensic, and workplace settings. These adverse outcomes are associated with one another both in terms of occurrence, as well as common risk factors. Discussion focuses on (a) the proportion of people who experience multiple types of adverse events; (b) whether each adverse outcome acts as a risk factor for the other adverse outcomes; (c) common vs. unique risk factors for these adverse events; and (d) assessment and intervention approaches that can use helpful in reducing the risk of multiple adverse, violence-related outcomes.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this program you will be able to:

  • Describe the intersection between violence perpetration, victimization, suicide-related behavior, and self-harm

  • Describe unique and shared risk factors for intersecting violence-related outcomes

  • Describe assessment and management approaches for intersecting violence risks
