PSI Webinar OnDemand- Threat Assessment in Schools


Miss this webinar?  No problem, it is available OnDemand on our web site.

School personnel such as administrators, school psychologists, social workers and counselors are increasingly faced with complex situations where students have made violent threats toward others or even the entire school. Many of these threats today are posted online or elsewhere.

Unfortunately, there have been schools who have received negative publicity for how they evaluated violent threats and for failing to share information with authorities and parents. School administrators also face a very difficult decision about whether to evacuate the school and many schools have lost numerous days of academic time as a result of receiving violent threats.
