Behavioral Science Applications has announced the launch of Human Factors in Homeland Security, a new eight-week certified training program featuring current high-level behavioral-based homeland security topics. The first session – Foundations of Human Behavior in Disasters and Emergencies – is scheduled for Wednesday, July 7, 2021.
Now more than ever, powerful emotions, attitudes, and beliefs are shaping the threat landscape and behavioral response to disasters and emergencies. From lingering concerns about COVID-19 to heat emergencies, wildfires, storms, acts of civil unrest, and domestic extremism, the dynamic threat landscape calls for decision-makers and responders to have a comprehensive understanding of the often surprising behavior of people in crisis conditions.
The summer schedule allows Behavioral Science Applications LLC to offer some of its most popular and useful training programs in a condensed 8-week series format. The eight one-hour classes are offered individually and as a certificate program. In addition to receiving the program certificate, those who register for the entire series can also enjoy a $100.00 discount.
Participants can join the live instructor-led online class each Wednesday from July 7 through August 25 at 1:00 PM (ET), or view the recorded programs at their convenience. Attendance to the live classes is not required for the certificate program. The complete list of class topics and dates are listed on the Behavioral Science Applications here.
The Summer Institute classes are taught by Steve Crimando, the founder and principal of Behavioral Science Applications. Steve is a 30+ year veteran disaster behavioral health professional and violence prevention expert. He is a Certified Threat Manager (CTM), Certified Homeland Protection Professional (CHPP), Disaster Response Crisis Counselor (DRCC), and Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress (BCETS). Steve was deployed to the 9/11 and 1993 World Trade Center attacks, as well as New Jersey’s anthrax screening center and other acts of international terrorism.
