Sadly, there have been too many school shootings and other episodes of extreme school violence. This session will provide participants with initial training to conduct assessments of specific threats that students make in schools. Threat assessment is the only research-based method for evaluating students’ danger in school settings. Join us to learn how to use recent data and FBI guidelines to promote and support school safety.
