Workshop Description
America has seen a growing amount of extremist and hate-based violence in the last several years. Many individuals mobilized to such violence show warning signs to those around them long before they act. This course is designed to teach mental health and social work practitioners how to identify the warning signs and indicators of violent extremism.  Participants will learn about current research on intervention techniques to demobilize clients from violence. The instructor will also cover information about New York’s Red Flag Laws and how to use Extreme Risk Protection Orders.

After the completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Define violent extremism
  • Identify the risk factors of violent extremism
  • Identify the warning signs of mobilization to violence
