The work of threat assessment and management, practiced by groups such as the Secret Service, is designed to prevent targeted violence against politicians, celebrities, and other highly valued individuals. Now imagine that one of society’s least protected classes, battered women, could have access to the same knowledge and insight. Lynn Fairweather, M.S.W., an abuse survivor and 22 year veteran of the domestic violence field has trained extensively alongside private protection firms and government entities in the art of evaluating and managing deadly threats. She now brings these skills to the fight on violence against women in an effort to instruct those who deal with victims and offenders on preventing intimate partner homicide in their own communities. Through threat assessment concepts such as “leakage” and “target hardening” the Prevention Through Foresight training teaches participants how to recognize potentially lethal situations and construct effective, collaborative interventions. Learning objectives for attendees include: Increase knowledge of Domestic Violence and Intimate Partner Homicide Understand the core principles of threat assessment and management Recognize the signs of imminent risk Appreciate the unique challenges of assessing and managing high lethality domestic violence cases Establish a framework for creating high risk safety plans Learn new management strategies Examine the coordinated community response model Beyond just defining a problem and providing statistics, this workshop offers concrete tools and new ideas for practitioners struggling with the highest risk cases. Participants will leave with an enhanced understanding of interpersonal violence, workable practice initiatives, and unique perspectives on how to reduce domestic violence. Appropriate for all audiences with a general understanding of domestic violence.
