Observy Mobile App

This Observy Mobile App is the Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) in the palm of your hand!

Observy Mobile App is a Security Aggression Management Mobile System that identifies, defines and measures human-based body language, behavior and communication indicators of Emerging Aggressive Behavior in progressive stages (Bullying, Harassment, Abuse and Violence) using the Meter of Emerging Aggression (MEA) and subsequently suggests Best Practice actions for prevention and response relevant to aggression’s type and threat level. Using methods sited by the US Secret Service and the FBI, Observy offers “reliable” prevention of Bullying, Harassment, Abuse and Violence.

The Secret Service and the FBI have stated that the only reliable way to identify a future shooter is by identifying “someone on the path to violence.” This Observy Mobile App contains scientifically-validated, objective, measurable observables of "someone on the path to violence."

Observy's The Meter of Emerging Aggression

WHAT CAN THIS OBSERVY MOBILE APP DO FOR YOU?

1. This Observy Mobile App is the Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) in the palm of your hand! CAPS is a system that enable you to identify, analyze, diffuse and track aggressive behaviors (escalating or de-escalating) over time; aggressive behaviors such as bullying, harassment, abuse and violence. Further, it offers progressive diffusing and security responses, so you are never seen as being “heavy handed.”

2. As an example, there are 0-9 levels of aggression behavior in our Observy Mobile App's Meter of Emerging Aggression: Bullying is at the 4th Aggression Level of our Meter. Once you realize this, and you learn what the 3rd, 2nd, and 1st Aggression Levels look like, you are seeing the precursors to Bullying which allows you to prevent Bullying. The same can be said for the precursors to violence.

3. Observy Mobile App determines the level of aggression and thereby the degree of threat (Low, Moderate and High). This App’s findings can be shared with a Threat Assessment Team, Human Resources, Management or any other individual with an Observy Mobile App.

4. The Secret Service and the FBI have stated that the only reliable way to identify a future shooter is by identifying “someone on the path to violence.” This Observy Mobile App contains scientifically-validated, objective, measurable observables of "someone on the path to violence."

5. Observy Mobile App uses no mental health, culture, gender, education, age or sexual orientation in its aggression assessment, it therefore does not conflict, nor contravene, HIPAA or Privacy regulations.

6. On the off chance that you are threatened by an active shooter, a knife wielding aggressor, a suicide bomber, or someone trying to take you or others as a hostage, the Observy Mobile App will offer suggested Best Practice responses.

QUESTIONS:
1.   Do you want control of Aggressive (bullying/harassment/abusive) Behavior around you?

2.   Do you want to reliably prevent bullying, harassment, abuse and violence around you?

3.   Are you tired of Security/Law Enforcement simply reacting to violence, instead of preventing it?

4.   Do you feel less safe today than you did just five years ago?

The murder rate in most major cities is on the rise. Too often, people seem uncaring, less considerate and more negatively “aggressive.”

Do you know what to do if someone becomes overtly aggressive with you? Do you know what to do if someone starts shooting while you are at work, your children are at school, or when you and your family are at the mall?

Because these scientifically validated indicators use no mental health, culture, gender, education, age or sexual orientation in its aggression assessment, it does not conflict, nor contravene, HIPAA or Privacy regulations.

In addition to the above, Observy also provides recommended diffusing responses to all levels of aggressive behavior. In addition, on the off chance that you are threatened by an active shooter, a knife wielding aggressor, or someone trying to take you or others as a hostage, Observy will offer suggested Best Practice responses.

FOR INDIVIDUALS:
You hear people in schools and workplaces suggesting we should “prevent” bullying, harassment and abuse, but these terms (bullying-harassment-abuse) suggests identifying someone who is already exhibiting bullying, harassment and/or abusive behavior. In other words, because you are witnessing these maladaptive behaviors, you are reacting to bullying, harassment and abuse, you are not preventing them. To prevent these behaviors, you must get out in front of them, what the FBI referred to as “identifying someone on the path to . . . .“ Observy gives you the “the path to . . .” or the precursors or antecedents to bullying, harassment and abuse, so that you can prevent these “aggressive” behaviors!

Have you been told “When you see something, say something?” Do you know what you are supposed to be seeing, and how, what, and with whom you should be sharing? Observy offers scientifically validated indicators of Emerging Aggression. Using Observy, you can objectively determine someone is aggressing and at what level of aggression they are. You will identify, record and track Objective, Measurable Observables on your Observy Mobile App.

OBSERVY MOBILE APP FOR EMPLOYERS
(Human Resource and Security Professionals):

1. Do you represent an organization or institution?
2. Are you tired of employees using subjective references to describe co-worker’s aggressive behavior?
3. Security/Human Resource Directors: Do you have difficulty justifying the amount budgeted for your team?

The use of subjective references by accusers in your organization/institution can lead down a rabbit hole that produces claims and counter-claims that cost significant human capital and produce human resource and security quagmires.

Too often, employees will not put their reputation or their jobs on the line based upon subjective references alone, so they say nothing until an incident occurs, or worse yet, a death occurs. How often have you heard from co-workers, after the fact, “We knew that Bob was an exploder; it was only a matter of when!” This acknowledgement too often comes too late to prevent loss of life or limb.

Now you no longer need to address aggressive behavior with subjective reference. Observy Mobile App offers objective, measurable, definable observables that you can use to identify, record, analyze and track human-based aggressive behavior. Observy Plus Mobile App offers the ability to reliably prevent issues like: bullying, harassment, abuse, and loss of trust, all of which have a profound negative effect on Teamwork, Leadership and Loyalty.

Security/Human Resource Directors: The lack of evidence-based reporting can make your budget justification difficult. The Observy Mobile App produces the highest form of evidence-based Best Practices, which demonstrates your teams' value and more!

Because these scientifically validated indicators use no mental health, culture, gender, education, age or sexual orientation in its aggression assessment, the Observy Mobile App does not conflict, nor contravene, HIPAA or Privacy regulations.

In addition to the above, Observy also provides recommended diffusing responses to all levels of aggressive behavior.

Trainer of US Army Special Ops Terrorism Division Calls for Action from Parkland School Board

Orlando, FL – John D. Byrnes, Founder and CEO of Center for Aggression Management proposes the most effective way to prevent incidents such as the Parkland shooting is not gun control or mental health profiling, but rather school boards like Parkland’s making an immediate commitment to creating a common language and process for threat detection and prevention.

In an article describing why mental health assessments can’t reliably predict potential shooters, Byrnes references the Report to the President on Issues Raised by the Virginia Tech Tragedy. It was noted that most people who are violent do not have a mental illness, but those that are mentally ill are more typically victims of this behavior. Byrnes believes that the dialogue surrounding the Parkland shooting will be most effective when it shifts from mental health assessments or gun control as the solution, to more scientifically-validated and empirical solutions such as threat/aggression management and the creation of a common language and process for detecting and preventing this behavior.

In a study conducted as a collaboration between the US Secret Service, Dept of Education and the National Institute of Justice called the “Safe School Initiative Study”, it was found that the only “reliable” way to identify a future shooter was to identify someone “on the path to violence.” By implementing a process like the Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS), a common language and thorough process for assessing a potential threat and reaching someone trained to handle this threat are created. CAPS’s most important contribution is that it determines a person Stage (Level) of Aggression and thus the presumption of threat (Low, Moderate, High Threat Levels), which creates the sense of urgency that was missing from the 45 times that Nikolas Cruz was reported.

While many schools, college campuses, and workplaces have their own Behavior Intervention services in place, many of these programs operate based off of vague reports of “weird” or “menacing” behavior. This completely subjective language fails to effectively target the source of the problem. Byrnes believes that people need to be trained to effectively evaluate communication, body language and behavior in order to encourage a potential aggressor to seek help, or de-escalate the issue themselves.

About Center for Aggression Management

The Center for Aggression Management was founded by John D. Byrnes in 1993 to provide organizations with Aggression Management skills through training. The Center for Aggression Management developed the Primal and Cognitive Aggression Continua. All of the body language, behavior and communication indicators offer a reliable and definable method of assessing “aggressive behavior”. This identifies and ranks the precursors to bullying, harassment, abuse and violence in order to provide the opportunity to prevent such incidents. The center uses a mobile-based software product called the Meter of Emerging Aggression (MEA). Because the MEA uses no mental health, culture, gender, education, age, or sexual orientation in its aggression assessment, it does not conflict with HIPAA or Privacy regulations.
