15th AETAP Conference

From April 22nd to April 25th, 2024, the 15th AETAP Conference took place in Paris and we’d like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who contributed to the success of our recent bilingual conference. The event was a remarkable gathering of threat management experts from around the globe, sharing insightful and engaging presentations.


A special thank you goes to our sponsors Google, Protect International, Peoplesafe, Swiss Police Institute, Institut Psychologie und Bedrohungsmanagement and Peace of Mind Ltd. for their significant contributions, which played a key role in making the conference a success.

The highlight of the conference was undoubtedly the unforgettable conference boat dinner, offering unique views of Paris and creating lasting memories for all attendees.

With great anticipation, we look forward to our next conference scheduled for April 7th – 10th, 2025 in Lugano, Switzerland.

Thank you once again for your participation and support. We can’t wait to see you at our next event!

Kind regards,

Workshop Day

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Stephen D. Hart from Canada will be presenting an “Violence Risk Triage Using the AVRT”

Violence risk triage is a process to identify, prioritize, and respond to cases in which there are reasonable concerns that someone poses a risk of violence. The Aid for Violence Risk Triage (AVRT) is a tool, based on reviews of practice and legal standards and pilot testing in diverse settings, that helps professionals triage violence risk in a structured and time-effective manner. In this workshop, participants will learn to:

  • Define violence risk triage, differentiating it from the more comprehensive process of violence risk/threat assessment and management
  • Describe the general process of violence risk triage and how it may differ across settings
  • Outline structure of the Aid for Violence Risk Triage (AVRT)
  • Administer the AVRT, based on the completion of practice cases
  • Communicate findings and opinions based on the AVRT in oral and written reports
