When is a death threat a real threat? – 8 December 2020

You can watch a recording of the event if you were unable to attend on the day.

This talk is of relevance to Occupational Psychiatrists, Occupational Physicians and all health-care staff working in Occupational Medicine who may have to assess the mental health of their patients who report harassment, bullying, feeling threatened or insecure in the workplace. However, the topic should also be of interest to all psychiatric and occupational health trainees and to general adult psychiatrists, including those who work in a forensic setting.

Speaker: Philip Grindell is the founder and CEO of Defuse Global, a Threat Management Consultancy that eliminates the anxiety, fear and uncertainty caused by fixated persons who target high-profile people and organisations with stalking, harassment, abuse, threats and intimidation.

Philip has served as a Scotland Yard Detective for the Metropolitan Police for almost 30 years in specialist roles, including time spent seconded to British Intelligence on Counter-Terrorist Investigations. More recently, he was chosen to build and manage a specialist security team, which includes two forensic psychologists, following the murder of Jo Cox MP.
