Ottawa, ON

Dec. 2021 – Present

Progress for Mental Health, in partnership with the North American Center for Threat Assessment and Trauma Response, is conducting training sessions on violence prevention with local community organizations.

Training Topic

Community-Based Level 1 Violent Threat Risk Assessment (VTRA) training

Benefits of the Program

  • Violence Risk Threat Assessment (VTRA) is a practical approach to building teams that can
    monitor, assess, and intervene to prevent violence within a communitv. It teaches behavioral
    analysis and threat assessment and provides a foundation for intervention around high-risk
    individuals. VTRA processes are applied to meet the needs of entire communities, individual
    school districts, colleges and universities, workplaces, and corporations.
  • NACTATR's VTRA model trains multiagency/ multidisciplinary professionals in the practical
    applications and deeper understanding that there is a "inseparable connection that exists
    between trauma and violence".
