The Calgary Police Service BEHAVIOURAL SCIENCES UNIT
is hosting WAVR -21 Training by Instructors Dr. Reid Meloy and Dr. Stephen Whiteon on March 1-2, 2017 in Calgary, Alberta.
The WAVR-21 – Workplace Assessment of Violence Risk – is a 21-item coded instrument for the structured assessment of workplace and campus targeted violence risk. It is appropriate for assessing adults and students 18 years of age or older, including outsiders who may possibly pose a risk of harm to a member or members of an organization.
The primary focus of the WAVR-21 is to assess the risk of workplace and campus-related targeted violence. A term originally coined by the behavioral scientists of the US Secret Service, targeted violence refers to situations in which an individual intentionally commits an act of violence against a pre-selected target, whether people or places. Also referred to as intended violence, these acts are potentially foreseeable, as they are the result of an understandable, evolving and often discernible process of thinking, behavior, and preparation. Several of the WAVR-21 factors incorporate this “pathway to violence” escalation dynamic.
