Lone Terrorism refers to violent acts carried out in support of some group, movement, or ideology by a single individual in the absence of assistance of an outside group. How do we ensure a comprehensive assessment of risk factors for such tragic acts before they happen? This exclusive training from the Global Institute of Forensic Research presents the development and utility of the Terrorist Radicalization Assessment Protocol-18 (TRAP-18). The instrument is designed to code for 8 proximal warning behaviors (such as pathway, identification, fixation, and novel aggression) and 10 longer term distal characteristics (such as personal grievance, ideological framing, virtual networking, and psychopathology). The TRAP-18 provides a means by which mental health, intelligence, law enforcement, and security professionals can organize accumulating operational data on a person of concern, and therefore plan for his or her risk management to reduce the threat of targeted violence. Research concerning the TRAP-18 is ongoing in both North America and Europe, and findings are demonstrating both inter-rater reliability and content validity.
More cost-effective and time-efficient than attending an in-person workshop but covering the same content, this innovative On Demand training is the first-of-its-kind.
