The 2022 Homeland Security Human Factors Summer Institute

Now more than ever, powerful emotions, attitudes, and beliefs are shaping the threat landscape and behavioral response to disasters and emergencies. From concerns about active shooters and mass violence to the ongoing pandemic, 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 our most popular and useful training programs in a condensed 8-week institute format. The eight one-hour classes are offered individually and as a certificate program. Just in time for the warm weather, those who register for the entire series will receive our Homeland Security Human Factors 2022 Summer Institute ‘warrior-scholar’ T-shirt! For groups larger than 10, please call or email for pricing options.

Participants can join the live instructor-led online classes each Wednesday from July 13 through August 31 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.

Give yourself a strategic and tactical advantage by applying accurate behavioral assumptions in all of your emergency and security-related preparedness, response, and recovery efforts.
