Unpacking the Relationship Between Mental Illness and Mass Violence

Podcast cover
Read more

Mental illnesses are extremely common; mass violence is not. Despite the fear and public scrutiny, mass shootings are statistically rare events. But it is hard for most people to imagine that a mentally healthy person would deliberately commit an act of mass murder; thus, it is often assumed that the perpetrators of mass violence must be mentally ill. There is a tendency to overuse mental health problems as an explanation for violence, but the relationship is far more complex than typically presented. While there is a modest link between mental illness and violence, there is no basis for a generalized fear of people with mental illness. Having a mental illness does not predispose someone to violence of any type, and certainly not mass violence.

In our Season Four finale, Steve Crimando of the New Jersey Department of Human Services’ Disaster and Terrorism Branch joins us again to unpack this complicated relationship and offer insights into the programs and resources that address both mental health and mass violence in the State.

Developing the 21st Century Analyst: Analysis of Competing Hypotheses

Podcast cover
Read more

Continuing our discussion of the structured analytic techniques toolbox, we come to Analysis of Competing Hypotheses (ACH), which is an unbiased methodology that identifies a set of hypotheses and systematically evaluates data that is consistent or inconsistent with each hypothesis. ACH is an eight-step procedure grounded in basic insights from cognitive psychology, decision analysis, and the scientific method. The use of ACH compels analysts to set aside preconceptions and look for inconsistencies in the data that may indicate a flaw in their reasoning or deception by the target. It ultimately forces analysts to disprove hypotheses rather than allowing them to jump to conclusions before they properly evaluate the evidence.

In this episode of the Developing the 21st Century Analyst series, we discuss the steps of ACH and how our office uses this technique in real-world scenarios.

Developing the 21st Century Analyst: Sources of Information

Podcast cover
Read more

Our previous episode discussed gathering information as a crucial step in the intelligence cycle, allowing analysts to provide actionable intelligence that ultimately improves how an agency performs its public safety responsibilities. There are several different sources of information, and knowing what these are and where to obtain them makes any public safety employee invaluable to their organization. Although there are six basic intelligence sources, or collection disciplines, the continual growth of different data repositories has tremendously increased the amount of information available to research for intelligence.

In the fourth installment of our Developing the 21st Century Analyst series, we delve deeper into the collection steps of the intelligence cycle by exploring the various resources that can be researched and utilized.

Developing the 21st Century Analyst: The Intelligence Cycle

Podcast cover
Read more
The Intelligence Cycle is the process of developing raw information into finished intelligence for policymakers to use when making decisions and taking action. There are hundreds of intelligence cycle models, which all generally include five or six distinct phases: Planning, Collection, Processing, Analyzing, Disseminating, and Feedback. Each organization may take a slightly different approach developing their intelligence model based on their needs and what suits their organization best. Join us in the third installment of our Developing the 21st Century Analyst series as we discuss different models of the intelligence cycle and what happens at each step of the process.

Developing the 21st Century Analyst: The History of Intelligence

Podcast cover
Read more

Intelligence gathering is known from our earliest recorded accounts. Egyptian hieroglyphics describe voyages to foreign lands dating to 3200 B.C. Sun Tzu wrote about intelligence in The Art of War circa sixth century B.C. During the Revolutionary War, intelligence operations focused on military actions under our first commander in chief.

Today, intelligence gathering remains a key practice for military and government entities, and also for commerce, finance, and other critical enterprises. Tune in to the first episode of our six-part series, Developing the 21st Century Analyst, where we will discuss the history and evolution of intelligence over the centuries.

Tune in to today’s episode as Steve Crimando of the New Jersey Department of Human Services' Disaster and Terrorism Branch joins us to discuss the Incel movement, how extremist groups might exploit their grievances, and what role mental health has in such cases.
