This training will introduce participants to effective practices in working with individuals who engage in violence. The Three Trees of Change (Emotional Resilience, Cognitive Consonance, and Behavioral Efficacy) will be explored within the framework of static, stable, and acute risk factors. We will use real-life examples from the 15 years of this model’s implementation to illustrate these concepts and to engage participants in an experiential learning process.

Speaker: Ben Motley, Founder, Three Trees Center for Change

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will understand how to identify Static, Stable Dynamic, and Acute Dynamic factors of individuals who engage in violence.
  • Participants will understand how to use Static factors for the assessment of violent behaviors.
  • Participants will be able to define and use the Three Trees of Change (Emotional Resilience, Cognitive Consonance, and Behavioral Efficacy) into treatment practices for individuals who engage in violence.
  • Participants will be able to mitigate Acute Dynamic factors through case management and community teamwork for individuals who engage in violence.
  • Participants will understand and be able to identify red flags in unhelpful violent behavior interventions.
