TRAP-18 Live Webinar Training with Dr. Reid Meloy, 12th April 2017

Lone Terrorism refers to violent acts carried out in support of some group, movement, or ideology by a single individual in the absence of assistance of an outside group. How do we ensure a comprehensive assessment of risk factors for such tragic acts before they happen? This exclusive training from the Global Institute of Forensic Research presents the development and utility of the Terrorist Radicalization Assessment Protocol-18 (TRAP-18). The instrument is designed to code for 8 proximal warning behaviors (such as pathway, identification, fixation, and novel aggression) and 10 longer term distal characteristics (such as personal grievance, ideological framing, virtual networking, and psychopathology). Research concerning the TRAP-18 is ongoing in both North America and Europe, and findings are demonstrating both inter-rater reliability and criterion validity. Presented by the developer of the TRAP-18, this live and interactive webinar is eligible for 3 Hours of valuable Continuing Education Credit.

11 th North London Forensic Service Conference, 26 th – 27 th September 2016, Queens’ College, Cambridge

International Conference on Terrorism, Extremism and Mental Health Services

This conference will be of interest to mental health professionals – psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses and managers – and also to counter-terrorism practitioners and academics in terrorism studies. The growing evidence that mental disorders are of importance in this area, contrary to the previous consensus, will be explored. More importantly, the conference aims to begin to consider the practical implications of this for practitioners and how multi-agency approaches may be helpful.
