Conference Information

 

Craig N. Ackley, President of the Behavioral Science Education and Consultation Services, Inc., in Spotsylvania, Virginia, will help participants shift their thinking about intimate partner abuse violence and sexual assault assessments. Craig is a retired law enforcement officer of 26 years, the last 21 as a Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). He retired from the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) of the FBI’s National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime (NCAVC), FBI Academy, Quantico, VA, where he provided behavioral support and training in violent crime matters to federal, state, local, and foreign law enforcement and prosecutorial agencies.

Historically, emphasis has been placed on the presence of risk factors, such as prior physical or psychological abuse, threatening behavior, substance use, and access to weapons. While these and other traditional risk factors are critical to evaluate, they are only part of the equation when trying to understand the dynamics of any given offense. It is equally important to consider the personality traits and characteristics of the specific offender.

This training is designed to provide familiarity with various personality issues involved in intimate partner violence, particularly as they relate to lethality. The motivations and subsequent behaviors in sexual offenses are also as diverse as the offenders themselves. Information will be shared to help participants better understand personality issues as they relate to characteristics and motivations of sexual offenders.

We have limited space for this training, so be sure to getyourself and your co-workers registered soon.
