Behavioral Threat Assessment & Community Resources

Defuse the threat of violence before it reaches a crisis. We will review the safety fundamentals for preventing school violence. National leaders from the LEA and SEA levels will explain the behavioral threat assessment process and address the importance of a multi-agency approach that creates a collaborative network of school, law enforcement, juvenile justice, community behavioral health, and others. Holistic violence prevention in our schools and community is achievable through best practice and we’ll use real cases to show you how.
