Fixated Risk Management: Training & Briefing Modules


An important source of risk to individuals and organisations are the actions of obsessive and isolated loners. Their motives can be difficult to discern and their communications can be threatening, abusive, distressing to read or hear and can persist for years.

Such communications may be warning signs of existing or impending risk. Yet, because they can be difficult to interpret and no common baseline-standard exists to deal with them, they are often ignored, consigned to the bin (or 'mad-drawer' to gather dust), or are responded to in inappropriate and counter-productive ways.

The ability to identify which communications need further investigation, triage fixated risk, and control appropriate management responses are vital to preventing or reducing the human and financial impact on individuals and businesses.

Our briefings and courses are designed to help our clients achieve this.


Our courses and briefings are delivered on client site by a combination of clinical and non-clinical personnel. They can be tailored for any business type and operating structure, can range from one hour to one day in duration depending on requirements, and are delivered by a combination of presentation, discussion and vignette exercises. Delegates may bring current or past cases of their own to aide discussion and learning.
