START’s practitioner-focused trainings are designed to advance the empirical basis for understanding terrorism, counterterrorism, and community resilience and to support real-world application of research findings. Training content is based on objective data and analyses resulting from cutting-edge, original research conducted by START’s multidisciplinary network of scholars.

Through these trainings, START improves participant knowledge using factual baselines and proven methodologies while building new skills to support the integration of research into policy and practice.
