Training Description
The Workplace Assessment of Violence Risk, Version 3 (WAVR-21 V3) is an evidence-based structured professional judgment instrument.  Studies are supporting both its reliability and validity in assessing threatening behavior in the workplace, and an updated 300 page manual has recently been published. Dr. John Monahan has written, “The WAVR-21 has been enriched to address intended violence on campus as well as in the workplace.  Firmly anchored in cutting-edge research and yet remarkably practitioner-friendly, the WAVR-21 is now the authoritative ‘go-to’ guide for threat assessment and management teams everywhere.” The present training offers an introduction to Version 3 of this innovative instrument.
