San Jose, CA (PRWEB) July 27, 2010
This summer, Henley-Putnam's exclusive webinar series continues, this time led by University President and co-founder Michael Corcoran, PhD. In addition to his former career as a U.S. Secret Service Special Agent, Dr. Corcoran is an author and one of the country's foremost authorities in threat assessment and workplace violence and consults regularly with numerous World Fortune 500 companies on the topic.
"Recently, the U.S. government has stepped up to require that all businesses have workplace violence prevention programs in place to identify, prevent, and deal with the potential risk," said Dr. Corcoran. "This month's webinar will address how everyone who deals with determining the threat of violence should be concerned about knowing how to accurately assess the potential risk of someone becoming violent, or at least what to do if they suspect something."
On Thursday, July 29, at 11:00 a.m. PDT, Dr. Corcoran will bring his over 40 years of experience to the conversation during Insider's Guide to Assessing Violence Risks. During the webinar, Dr. Corcoran will discuss how you can recognize and react to potential threats; how violence impacts the daily lives of law enforcement, corporate security, and others at the organizational, local, state and federal levels; and what those entering strategic security careers should know about the inherent risk of dealing with violence.
Insider's Guide to Assessing Violence Risks will take place Thursday, July 29, at 11:00 a.m. PDT (2:00 p.m. EDT). Those interested in participating in the webinar should register at https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/414950418. The webinar is open to the public and completely free of charge.
