Advances in Structured Professional Judgment: An Inter-disciplinary Workshop
PRESENTER: Quazi Haque & Christopher Webster
DATE: June 24, 2019
TIME: 9am - 5pm (Full Day)
COST: $250 CAD
The workshop centers on the contents of a new book the presenters have edited on the topic of Structured Professional Judgment (SPJ). Although designed as a “practical text” on the subject, the various contributors have written short pieces which take into account “up-to –the-moment thinking and research. The authors stress the range of SPJ devices which have stood the test of time but also, and more importantly the rigours of scientific field testing. The workshop also aims to provide a preliminary platform to stimulate new research.
This will be a full day workshop framed around sections of the new book “Structured Professional Judgment and Violence Risks: A Practical Guide (Eds. Derek Eaves, Christopher D. Webster, Quazi Haque & Joanne Thalken-Eaves). Sessions will include several group workshop exercises and discussions linked to the main learning objectives.
The facilitators will particularly focus on exercises designed to provide greater insights into the robustness of different risk assessment approaches; the construction of research trials when evaluation risk schemes; and, novel approaches toward training colleagues and implementing such schemes effectively into services.
