Check out the details of this ACC organised conference in Auckland in March next year. Seems they want to involve everyone except the claimants. The registration is $900, so how many claimants could afford it anyway. But how about a big protest outside.

Welcome to the Bold Perspectives, Shared Objectives conference website

In 1974 New Zealand began a bold experiment. A personal accident scheme for all New Zealanders that fostered prevention, care and recovery from injury. And over the last 30 years ACC has been delivering that experiment.

A key part of ACC's job has been to create and manage a series of partnerships - with claimants, with medical providers, with funders, with employers and with community groups, such as sports organisations.

Now as part of our 30th celebrations we are proud to invite those partners from New Zealand and abroad to listen and learn about the next bold injury prevention and rehabilitation ideas.

As an organisation unique in the world much of what we have learned and developed has come from within the organisation or within New Zealand. The conference will draw on and share that expertise.

But equally relevant is the research, the ideas and the different perspectives that international speakers can provide. We have pulled together some of the leading thinkers in the world to challenge and motivate delegates as we head towards the next 30 years.

We look forward to delivering a thought provoking conference and to meeting you there.

Garry Wilson
Chief Executive, ACC

Now that is what I call ample time to get organised. Oh yum yum yum! Ben showed us how to spoil a birthday party. Can you imagine the panic at Shamrock when they here we are going to protest it. Can the Auckland group immediately seek aproval from the police to stage a protest?
The question of money now becomes important. This is something we have all shied away from. But it is rapidly becoming apparent that we need a part of the organisation to accept donations or apply for funding from the Community Organisation Grant Scheme. (The real COGS, not the one ACC used to bluff the levy payer they were doing something about claimant issues)
We need to advertise so more people can learn we are here. We need an account we can draw on to set up and advertise a protest for things like this conference. Any opinions?

One of their keynote speakers at the conference in March is a guy called Steve Longford. Here's his CV:

Steve Longford is a former Australian Police Officer who served as a Detective, a Senior Intelligence Analyst and a Behavioural Analyst.

He resigned in 2000 as the head of the Queensland Police Service’s Violent Crime Analysis Unit where he trained with the FBI as a profiler and worked on serial violent crime.

He was also engaged in detection of deception in written and oral statements and compilation of interview and investigative strategies in relation to homicide, sexual assault, extortion and kidnapping offences. He has tertiary qualifications in Psychology and Intelligence.

Since his resignation he has been a Senior Consultant with The Distillery, an Australian company providing intelligence solutions to law enforcement, intelligence and compliance agencies in Australian, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

As Manager of the Distillery’s Corporate Intelligence Division, he has spent the last three years researching and combining different facets of profiling, psychology, deception detection, body language, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and interview methodologies into a single tool called Behavioural Intelligence.

He is presently concluding the commercialization of Behavioural Intelligence as a concept through compilation and delivery of behavioural training programs and consulting services.


Let's all play "Spot The Malingerer"!!! It's enough to scare you shitless!!! What the hell are ACC doing getting an FBI trained criminal profiler to be a keynote speaker at an injury prevention and rehabilitation conference? Or has Garry been watching too much CSI and NCIS?

Ahaa the great witch hunter purveysant, Longford himself no less. What a speaker like this does is establish the lunatic paranoia that controls ACC. Umm Gary; they have been having a we bit of a problem with behavioural modification at the corrections dept. lately and ACC claimants are victims. There is only them to pay compensation too if your bold new rehabilitation initiatives are anything like your last lot. This is a very dangerous mindset to have at the helm of such a huge empire. He surrounds himself with heavies like SIRVA and this weirdo who has convinced Wilson he can read minds. If he is so brilliant what is he doing in the company of all the wankers at Shamrock? A load fo rubbish and another lame attempt to have the legitimate claimant presented as a fraudster to justify the EXIT programme.

ACC’s keynote speaker sends wrong message
Sue Bradford MP, Green Party ACC Spokesperson

13th October 2004


Green MP Sue Bradford is questioning whether a criminal profiler is an appropriate speaker for an ACC rehabilitation conference.

“There is a widespread perception amongst ACC claimants that the corporation is far more interested in getting them off compensation rather than rehabilitating them back into meaningful work,” said Ms Bradford, the Green Party’s ACC Spokesperson.

“Hosting a speaker who is developing methodology for detecting fraud at a conference that is supposed to be about rehabilitation can only reinforce this concern.

Ms Bradford asked Ruth Dyson in the House this afternoon why Steve Longford, a former head of the Queensland Police’s Violent Crime Analysis Unit who has trained with the FBI, is a keynote speaker at the ACC’s ‘Bold Perspectives, Shared Objectives’ conference next March.

In answer, Ms Dyson said Mr Longford has expertise in family violence and that ACC had invited him after hearing him speak at an Australian injury prevention conference earlier this year.

However, the NZ conference programme promotes Longford as a specialist in behavioural analysis for intelligence and compliance agencies. His seminar is titled ‘Using behaviour intelligence to obtain more focused and direct results’. (See p5.) His seminar at the Australian Conference was on ‘deception detection’.

“If Mr Longford’s relevance is around reducing family violence, why does ACC’s programme not mention it and instead emphasises his background in criminal profiling?” asked Ms Bradford.

“Just yesterday the media reported that ACC has been claiming people are ‘ready to work’ and no longer require compensation after being shoved through inappropriate courses and awarded bogus qualifications.

“It is unreasonable and unfair for ACC to presume that long-term claimants, almost by definition, don’t want to get back to work. The vast majority, around who policy should be formed, are people who are more than willing to take whatever practical and realistic steps are needed to be rehabilitated.

“On the ‘Bold Perspectives’ homepage, ACC Chief Executive Garry Wilson proudly proclaims that ACC has been delivering on a ‘bold experiment’ for 30 years. The Green Party calls on Wilson and ACC to deliver on the original spirit of the scheme and start treating claimants as people to be helped and not statistics to be adjusted.”

Accident Compensation Corporation—Bold Perspectives, Shared Objectives Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation Conference

3. SUE BRADFORD (Green) to the Minister for ACC: What is the purpose of the Bold Perspectives, Shared Objectives Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation Conference that ACC is hosting in March 2005?

Hon RUTH DYSON (Minister for ACC): The conference will bring together a number of top national and international experts on injury prevention and rehabilitation. It will provide a valuable opportunity to learn from international experience and research, and for New Zealand to share the outstanding results of our unique and successful accident compensation scheme.

Sue Bradford: Why has the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) selected as a keynote speaker Steve Longford, an FBI-trained criminal profiler who works on counter-terrorism and serial violent crime, and how does that fit in with the purposes of the conference?

Hon RUTH DYSON: Mr Longford was a guest speaker at the Australian Rehabilitation Providers Association conference in March this year, and appealed to ACC because of his outstanding work in the area of family violence injury prevention. It is not an area on which we have particular expertise, and I am looking forward to hearing his views.

Hon Mark Gosche: What proportion of accident compensation claimants are successfully rehabilitated within a year of their injury?

Hon RUTH DYSON: I am advised that over 90 percent of claimants are successfully rehabilitated, measured by a combination of the rate of return to work and positive assessments of claimants gaining maximum independence. By world standards, this is a first-class achievement.

Peter Brown: Can the Minister give the House some idea of the estimate of the costs of this conference, and will she guarantee that there will be benefits in the long term for accident compensation victims; if so, how?

Hon RUTH DYSON: I am unable to give the final total costings for the conference, but I am quite happy to forward that information to the member when it becomes available. I am confident, when I look at the 30 or so speakers, both from within New Zealand and international, that it will be very worthwhile.

Sue Bradford: Does the Minister consider that Steve Longford’s presence at the conference creates an appropriate perception among claimants of the corporation’s role in rehabilitation, given that his current focus is on providing behavioural intelligence and deception detection expertise to counter-terrorist, corporate, and Government bodies around the world?

Hon RUTH DYSON: I think it is an added bonus that he is also an expert in counter-terrorism activities, but that is not the primary reason we have invited him to an injury prevention conference in New Zealand. The reason for the invitation is his expertise in family violence prevention.

Peter Brown: Can the Minister give us even the slightest indication of what this will cost, or is it what we would term a “blank cheque” conference?

Hon RUTH DYSON: No, I cannot give the member any vague indication, because I do not think that would be helpful to the member. It is certainly not a blank cheque. The fact is, as I outlined in my answer to the previous supplementary question, that I do not have the finalised costs available. When I do have them available, I will be very happy to forward them to the member.

Sue Bradford: Is the Minister concerned at all that despite her efforts to change the attitude of ACC towards claimants over the last 5 years, ACC often retains its old culture of blaming rather than supporting accident victims—particularly long-term claimants—and risks intensifying that culture by viewing them via Mr Longford as potential terrorists and serial criminals?

Hon RUTH DYSON: No, I do not agree with that suspicion at all. In my view, it would be more helpful for the member to acknowledge the reason Mr Longford is coming here, and not add to any suspicion that would fuel the very concern she has about ACC.

Here is what the Australian conference advertised as Steve Longford's contribution -

9.20am to 10.30am
Keynote Steve Longford - One of our four forensic profilers in Australia, Steve delivered the world's first course on behavioural intelligence last year. The detection of deception is based on criminal intelligence and incorporates body language social psychology. Detecting deception through behavioural Intelligence. Do You know when someone is being deceptive? Is someone purposefully hiding information from you? Want to know the best way to get information across to an unreceptive person?


You don’t need to be an expert in deception detection to detect who is being deceptive here.

I guess he will now have to swot up on preventing family violence injuries, since Ruth has told Parliament that is what he will be talking about.

ACC conference speaker - rehabilitation or criminalisation?
Sue Bradford MP, Green Party ACC Spokesperson

General Debate, Parliament, 13th October 2004



Mr Speaker,

This afternoon during question time I asked ACC Minister the Hon Ruth Dyson a question in the House about the invitation to Steve Longford from Australia to be a keynote speaker at ACC’s forthcoming ‘Bold Perspectives, Shared Objectives’ conference to be held in March next year.

The Green Party raised the issue because we cannot really understand why the ACC felt inspired to feature Mr Longford, given that his web profile identifies him as an FBI-trained criminal profiler with a specialisation in ‘deception detection’, unless the underpinning aim here is to use his expertise to get more people off income related compensation more quickly through a presumption that ‘deception detection’ will achieve this.

In response to my questions, among other things, the Minister suggested that this gentleman was invited because of his specialisation in family violence. Well we’ve looked again at the material readily available on the web, and at this stage we have not found anything in his resume that indicates anything to do with family violence.

Instead, Mr Longford’s contribution to the Australian conference the Minister mentioned earlier, says, in part, ‘Keynote Steve Longford – one of our four forensic profilers in Australia… the detection of deception is based on criminal intelligence and incorporates body language social psychology. Do you know when someone is being deceptive? Is someone purposely hiding information from you?” and so on.

That was the focus of his speech at the conference in Australia. This is why the ACC has invited him here. When this is allied to the fact that Mr Longford’s company focuses on intelligence and investigations management for counter terrorism, and government and corporate fraud and compliance, I think it is pretty clear what it is that ACC has invited him over to do.

I do realise that some MPs in this House probably think that countering claimant fraud and getting people off income-related accident compensation is actually ACC’s core purpose. The Green Party, however, subscribes to a somewhat different view - that the rehabilitation part of ACC should be primarily focused on helping and supporting people until they have genuinely recovered to the point where they can achieve real vocational independence; not on pushing people off because of dodgy computer certificates or treating people as criminals by case managers using behavioural profiling techniques such as those so expertly espoused by Mr Longford.

Claimants report that individual rehabilitation plans often seem to be a token exercise, with a speedy exit from weekly compensation entitlement through the vocational independence assessment process being the goal, rather than restoring the claimant's participation to the maximum extent practicable.

That perception is reflected in the petition currently before the Transport and Industrial Relations Select Committee calling for a Committee inquiry into ACC claims management. I hope the petition’s call is picked up the Committee.

I am afraid that the “Step by Step” computer course that attracted media attention yesterday is not an isolated incident. ACC claimants around the country are reporting that the inclusion of similarly short and inadequate courses in individual rehabilitation plans under the guise of retraining is widespread. These courses give claimants no real skills that enhance their employment opportunities. Rather, they result in just a piece of paper that shows they have completed the course so that they can be entered into the vocational independence assessment process and thereby have their weekly compensation stopped.

When experiences like these are combined with the invitation to Steve Longford to next year’s conference, the Green Party can’t help but feel that this is indicative of an ACC mindset that all claimants are potential malingerers, and that the primary focus is to exit them from entitlements as quickly as they can.

Restoring an injured person’s participation to his or her maximum extent practicable should mean what it says. It does not mean making a token effort at vocational rehabilitation. It does not mean treating all claimants as criminals, malingerers, or deceitful fraudsters and profiling them so as to exit them from the scheme as soon as possible. It does not mean forcing people off ACC and onto the dole, if they are lucky, or in many cases, onto nothing at all.

alot of the cases that have been EXITED may not be for long term. this is still a liability so until that person dies he corporation has to keep that personon the books. every time a person does get reinstatement the Corporation has not only pay the Compensation but could be asked to reinburse the profit that the corporation has made out of there money.

Welcome to Bold Perspectives, Shared Objectives
In 1974 New Zealand began a bold experiment. A personal accident insurance scheme for all New
Zealanders that fostered prevention, care and recovery from injury. And over the last 30 years ACC
has been making that experiment a success.
A key part of ACC's job has been to create and manage a series of partnerships – with claimants,
with medical providers, with funders, with employers and with community groups, such as sports
organisations.
Now, as part of our 30th year, we are proud to invite those partners from New Zealand and abroad
to listen and learn about the next bold injury prevention and rehabilitation ideas.
As an organisation unique in the world, much of what we have learned and developed has come
from within the organisation or within New Zealand. The conference will draw on and share that
expertise.
But equally relevant is the research, the ideas and the different perspectives that international
speakers can provide. We have assembled some of the leading thinkers in the world to challenge
and motivate delegates.
We look forward to delivering a thought provoking conference and to meeting you there.

:lol: You will notice that
Dyson's name is not mentioned any where. Funny eh, and she is supposed to be the Minister. They have not even had the courtesy of giving her any speaking time.
Perhaps they don't want her to meet Mr Longford and ask about his family violence theme??
