The Profile of Failed Prevention, Looking Beyond the People Profile
A lot of research has focused on the profile and risk factors of those that commit violent acts. However studying incidents where violence did occur can teach us a lot about gaps in systems, and misguided prevention attempts. In this webinar Rick Shaw will speak about his study of the profile of failed preventions which exists in various contexts such as education, organizations, government, law enforcement, and communities. This profile persists because conventional playbooks and guidelines are not updated with such evidence-based findings.
Researching failed preventions reveals a particular profile of failed preventions. In Australia, United States, France, and around the world we see incidents that had more than enough red flags and warning signs observed and reported before incidents and tragedies occurred, yet they weren’t prevented. This begs the question of how and why is this happening again and again?
While significant research has focused on the profile of the attackers and evil doers, Rick has focused on the profile of failed preventions themselves. This profile of failed preventions exists in various contexts such as education, organizations, government, law enforcement, and communities. This profile persists because conventional playbooks and guidelines are not updated with such evidence-based findings. This session will help organizational leaders and Threat Assessment Team members to better understand:
- What the research on the profile of failed preventions has revealed
- Why failed preventions keep happening around the world
- What can be done to update and immediately improve prevention efforts
- Why conventional approaches are making it more difficult for TATs and prevention
- How common barriers with information sharing and intervention can be removed
By understanding the profile of failed preventions, leaders will gain the knowledge to take immediate actions using the new prevention model for the new world and new challenges. The timing to understand this new prevention model is critical as increasing grievances and stressors are leading to more at-risk individuals and more challenges than ever before.
SPEAKER BIO: Rick Shaw
Rick Shaw is a Prevention Expert, author of The First Preventers Playbook, and trusted advisor to organizations and communities. He is also the founder of Awareity and First Preventers. For over 20 years Rick has been researching post-incident reports, lawsuits, and lessons learned in an effort to identify the profile of failed preventions.
Rick’s research not only exposed the profile of failed preventions but also lead to identifying the 6 Stages of Preventing as well as strategies and tools designed to eliminate the dangerous gaps, silos, and disconnects found in the profile of failed preventions, allowing threat assessment teams, organizations, and communities to proactively prevent more incidents, saving lives, reputations, and bottom lines.
