In response to audience requests for advanced webinar opportunities, we are delighted to welcome back Marisa Randazzo (PDF), Ph.D., principal and co-founder of SIGMA Threat Management Associates, LLC and international expert on threat assessment, targeted violence, and violence prevention, for an intermediate/advanced webinar on threat assessment.

Marissa Randazzo, Ph.D.

In addition to her work at SIGMA, Marisa currently serves as director of threat assessment for Georgetown University. Previously, Dr. Randazzo served for 10 years with the U.S. Secret Service, most recently as the agency's chief research psychologist. Among her various responsibilities, she co-directed the Safe School Initiative, the landmark federal study of school shootings that was conducted jointly by the U.S. Secret Service and U.S. Department of Education. She is co-author of two leading books on threat assessment: The Handbook for Campus Threat Assessment and Management Teams (2008) and Implementing Behavioral Threat Assessment on Campus: A Virginia Tech Demonstration Project (2009). Both books are referenced as best-practice resources in several federal guides on emergency planning and in an American National Standard.

In this 90-minute webinar, Marisa will discuss the most common questions facing threat assessment teams such as: How do you measure if your team is functioning effectively? Is your team struggling with too many or few cases? She’ll cover a checklist of items that teams can consult to gauge their effectiveness and identify any areas where they may want to consider revising or enhancing their operations. She will identify tasks that an institution of higher education’s general counsel or risk manager can undertake to help their threat assessment team’s functionality. Finally, the webinar will conclude with a review of problems common to campus threat assessment teams and suggested solutions.

The intermediate/advanced webinar is appropriate for professionals in public safety and law enforcement, student affairs, counseling / EAP, human resources, emergency management, risk management, and general counsel. Those at the beginner level may also benefit from this information.
