Predictive Behavior Training

Predictive Behavior and Aggression Management Training is one of the key components of the Prevention portion of our PAAD program. Certification is received through the Center for Aggression Management for two of our programs, Aggression First Observer Training and the Aggression Manager Training.

The Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) Solution is based on years of research into aggressive behavior, and the recognition that practical tools to identify, measure, and assess specifically emerging human aggression. As a result, CAPS is the most effective “system” for achieving maximum safety and security in a practical, scalable and affordable way.

Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) provides the means and methods for Aggression First Observers, along with Certified Aggression Managers to reliably prevent conflict and thereby prevent any subsequent threats and potential crisis. Because CAPS addresses only “aggressive behavior,” it does not violate HIPAA, FERPA regulations and the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) is uniquely built upon measuring the emergenceof aggression, providing Aggression First Observers along with their Certified Aggression Managers the opportunity to reliably prevent the next Moment of Commitment (shooting) as well as any violence or aggression with its proprietary Primal and Cognitive Aggression Continua.
