Training in Risk Communication and Public Involvement

Based on over 25 years of experience in the nuclear industry, environmental sciences, public health, homeland security, and regulatory arena, my workshops train scientists, engineers, health care leaders, industrial hygienists, communicators, managers, and others to communicate effectively about complex scientific issues such as environmental, safety, and health risks. This training is enhanced by

  • + an in-depth understanding of science and technology
  • + extensive training background
  • + real-life examples
  • + proven training techniques.

The modularized sessions are based on the book, Risk Communication: A Handbook for Communicating Environmental, Safety, and Health Risks, co-authored with Andrea McMakin. Sessions can range from as little as 1 hour to as many as 3 days, depending on the needs of the organization. Students learn through a combination of lecture and practical, hands-on exercises.
