November 3rd Safety Assessment & Intervention Training

Safety Assessment & Intervention TrainingThreat Assessment & Intervention is a national evidenced-based violence prevention training program researched and developed by Dewey G. Cornell, Ph.D., a forensic clinical psychologist and Professor of Education at the Curry School of Education at the University of Virginia. This program exists in over 1,000 schools and organizations in the U.S. SHP has partnered with Dr. Cornell to provide and train schools and community-based organizations on Threat Assessment & Intervention nationwide. Schools and community organizations will be able to establish multidisciplinary safety and support teams to identify, assess, and respond to threats of violence. Teams learn to use a decision tree to resolve most threats with only 1-2 team members, and to engage the full team for more serious threats. Research has shown that multidisciplinary teams can be trained with a one-day intensive workshop followed by adherence to a detailed threat assessment and intervention manual.

Who Should Attend?

We are striving for at least 10 multidisciplinary teams (or 10 building teams) made up of 'policy-facing' K-12 staff such as administrators, SROs/Security, district administration, nurses, counselors, and mental health staff/Resource Coordinators.

Lunch will be provided. Register by October 3, 2017.
