Identifying Signals of Deadly Intent
Many individuals are exposed to potential violence or assault in their professional lives. Our most recent studies have allowed for the identification of facial expressions that have been reliably associated with imminent attack or physical assault. This course aids trainees in quickly identifying the nonverbal cues associated with imminent attack, allowing for a few seconds extra time for defensive or evasive courses of action.
Participants learn how to:
- Understand the basics of emotion and the scientific basis of facial expressions of emotion
- Improve their ability to identify these expressions quickly and to differentiate them from other similar signals that are distracters.
