Risk Rubric & Glossary
TARGETED: The attacker considers and selects a particular target prior to attack. The consideration occurs through the process of an idea with motive, planning, preparation and eventually action.
REACTIVE OR AFFECTIVE: The attacker acts in an emotional or highly aroused state in response to a perceived challenge, threat, insult or other affront. Is often a temporary, explosive or impulsive act without premeditation, planning, plotting or specific targeting. Reactive behavior can be a function within a pattern of socialization as some attackers search for excuses or opportunities to be angry and aggressive, without any predetermined target.
MILD TO MODERATE AGGRESSION: Harmful behavior that is directed at another person(s) and does not cause serious or lethal injury.
EXTREME OR VIOLENT AGGRESSION: Harmful behavior that is directed at another person(s) and causes or is intended to cause serious or lethal injury.
