Australian Government-Sponsored Webinar
We draw your attention to the upcoming Webinar on Monday 18 March 2019 (this evening), Mental illness, terrorism and grievance-fuelled violence: Understanding the nexus sponsored by the Australia New Zealand Counter-Terrorism Committee, the Australian Department of Home Affairs and produced by the Mental Health Professionals’ Network.
Through a facilitated panel discussion about Emir, at the completion of the webinar participants will:
• understand the non-causal link between mental illness, extremist ideology and abnormal fixation
• identify fixated behaviour, radicalisation to violent extremism and potential for grievance-fuelled violence
• have an awareness of the referral pathways and take appropriate steps if they are concerned that a patient may be radicalising to violence or on a pathway to grievance-fuelled violence.
