The root causes of aggression can be mental illness, criminal intent,
religious fervor, political extremism, stress in the workplace, domestic
challenges, or even stress from traumatic experiences.
Aggression can result in a wide range of behavior that at a minimum
can be very costly to any organization and at its worst can threaten the
safety of the workplace, campus, religious organization, or school. It
can also threaten all of us in all facets of our everyday lives. Among the
ways that aggression can manifest itself are shown below.
Although many organizations have some form of behavior or crisis
intervention program, most programs and efforts of this nature do not
prevent the damage of aggression -- they either just do not work or they
respond to the crisis that results from aggression.
You need to be able to recognize the signs of aggressive behavior early,
so your programs can move from being reactive to truly proactive in
preventing the damage caused by aggression!
The Aggression Management training and systems brought to you by
the Center will allow the early recognition of aggressive behavior you
need using objective, measureable observations that transcend:
> the root cause of aggression,
> the Primal or Cognitive nature of the aggressor, and
> the aggressor's social or ethnic background.
The training and systems offered by the Center will provide the missing
pieces that will make your existing behavior and crisis intervention
programs truly effective. You also will achieve the consistent
communications, responses, and documentation that are needed for
these programs to maximize violence prevention, avoid wasted time and
expense, and reduce liabilities related to untimely or inappropriate
actions. You will know how to productively deal with aggressive behavior
on behalf of your organization and in every facet of your daily life!

Training and Systems that Prevent Violence
Thank You for taking the time to learn about the Aggression Management.
Today’s workplaces, schools and campuses and the communities in which we live are very challenging
environments. Leaders, managers and administrators are faced with ever increasing demands to protect
employees, faculty, staff, students, and visitors in the workplace and on campus at a time when
aggressive behavior is becoming more common and budgets are under extreme pressure.
The Center for Aggression Management exists to prevent violence. We do this by providing training
and systems that allow users to recognize and respond to aggressors as their aggressive behavior
emerges. With the skills and systems needed to recognize emerging aggressive behavior at its early
stages and to respond appropriately, users truly can be proactive in preventing violence.

The Cognitive Aggressor is
intent driven, may seem very
calm, and is often the more
dangerous aggressor. This is the
person that will become the next
random shooter or terrorist.
