Student safety is always of the highest importance. The field of threat assessment is well researched, and relies on strong theoretical foundations to provide the safety your students need to reach their highest potentials. The practices you will learn in this training cut through fear and poor decisions to give you the tools you need to effectively develop and maintain a threat assessment protocol for your institution. By the end of the day, participants will be able to: 1) Identify risk and protective factors, 2) Detail the development and maintenance of a threat assessment team, and 3) Set a threat level regarding students of concern.
