Presentation #1:
Title: Preventing impulsive and predatory acts of violence; The basics of understanding the violent mind
Speaker: Totti Karpela
In Singapore where commerce, trade and fiercely competitive business practice from the heart and soul of economic life, organizations and their employees are frequently challenged by the ugly side of human behaviour. It can manifest in the form of workplace violence, sexual harassment, criminal intimidation, blackmail, criminal extortion and unsavory debt-collecting practices; spreading worry and fear throughout an organization; affecting employee morale and productivity. Human behaviour – and therefore manmade threats -can be analyzed and even predicted in the form of a person’s or group’s motivations, capabilities and opportunities to carry out their intentions and so effective strategies can be developed to manage and prevent these situations.

Totti will look at the typical forms of threatening behaviour and the mean in which they may be communicated. He will impart advice on how such threats should be analyzed and interpreted and outline planning strategies for organizations to prevent, manage and investigate these incidents; factors which are often overlooked by corporate HR and psychologists.

Mr. Karpela (ret.) police sergeant of the National Police of Finland with 24 years of experience from law enforcement. During his years of service Mr. Karpela worked as a unit supervisor for Helsinki Police Department’s threat management service as well as hostage negotiator for the national SWAT team. He is still working as a subject matter expert for the European Council human rights project and for OSCE trainer for law enforcement organizations in conflict resolution issues. Since the mid-1990s Mr. Karpela has worked with threats related to intimate partner violence, organized crime, stalking, threats against government officials and others that have affected large, multi-national corporations. He has written several manuals and books and hundreds of articles about preventing violent crime, personal security and managing harassment cases. He is currently an executive board member for the Association of European Threat Assessment Professionals (AETAP) and an active member of ASIS Finland Chapter 210. Mr. Karpela lectures globally to audiences on the topic of prevention of violent crime.
