How to Predict Violence & Influence Outcomes

Dynamics of Street Engagements and Situational Awareness

The vast majority of attacks on officers begin with communication: They Tell You it’s Coming

If you can predict it, you can prevent it. 

Stopping violence before it starts is a learnable and necessary skill.  Too often, officers are reactive to aggression rather than predictive.  Preparing for a violent encounter requires that you quickly and accurately identify behaviors that indicate vicious intent.  If done effectively, you have the power to influence outcomes.

How to Predict Violence & Influence Behavior begins by delving deeply into the science of Kinesics and the study of body language, stances, gestures, and micro-expressions.  Using videos of recent attacks on officers, we analyze subtle movements, mannerisms and warning signs of the impending aggression.  We will discuss how these same, proven skills can assist in getting confessions.

We then discuss the critical importance of your own behavior and how it can be affected by emotion and stress.  Learn what science tells us about human behavior and how asking the right questions, actively listening and showing empathy can be the keys to controlling, redirecting and influencing others.  Once learned, you can control the outcome of a potentially deadly encounter.
