About this item

Reorganized into two sections, this guide explains threat assessment and management strategies for human resources staff, mental health professionals, staff attorneys, employee assistance professionals, educators, and law enforcement and security specialists managing potentially violent situations or problem individuals. It describes the threat management process: conducting protective fact finding, assessing the facts to determine the level of risk, and selecting threat management strategies, including identifying, assessing, and managing individuals who purposefully intend to cause problems. The second section discusses two types of problem individuals, howlers (who seek physical injuries through lethal violence) and hunters (who seek emotional and mental injuries through harassment and intimidation), how they behave, and how understanding these behaviors can be used to manage each type, with examples from real-life events and discussion of the intimacy effect and case law. This edition has new chapters, including a new section on threat assessment and management strategies; new charts and illustrations; and updated cases. Calhoun is a teacher and author who developed threat assessment processes for law enforcement and curriculum and training on threat management, and Weston has worked as a teacher, author, consultant, and highway patrol officer and manager of a threat investigation unit.
