    This is the 3rd edition of this popular threat assessment tool. First published in 2007, the WAVR-21 has quickly become the go-to resource for threat assessment in the workplace, campus and community settings.

    The WAVR-21 is the first scientifically developed instrument for assessing risk of violence in the workplace. It was first introduced in 2007 and is currently in use in numerous Fortune 500 companies, large and smaller universities, secondary school districts, government agencies, and law enforcement and security departments throughout the US and Canada. With proper training, the WAVR-21 is an easy to use, highly effective tool for assessing risk and determining whether risk is increasing or decreasing, thereby assisting with the appropriate threat management response.

    The revised WAVR-21, Third Edition, features a coding form appropriate for all users in their risk screening or threat assessment roles. The instrument and manual content now address both campus and workplace contexts. The manual includes a new comprehensive Intake and Documentation Questionnaire, four extensive post-incident analyses of workplace and campus homicide cases, and updated and new material.
