A core concept in the field of threat assessment & threat management is the notion of the “pathway to violence.”  It is a trajectory of behavior – shown through empirical research – that typically precedes school shootings, assassination, workplace violence, stalking, and other types of targeted attacks.  Understanding what the “pathway to violence” is, and what to look for, helps make it possible to prevent these types of targeted violence.  SIGMA created this video to help explain the pathway to violence and the FBI and Secret Service research behind it.  The video also includes a discussion of how we can prevent violence by moving someone off the pathway to violence and onto a better path.  Run time approx 30 minutes.  CLICK HERE to see the video.
