Since Columbine and Virginia Tech, and despite elaborate campus safety and active shooter plans, we continue to have a disturbing number of campus shootings. We know that prevention is the best intervention. When campus violence occurs, there are often identifiable signs prior to a violent incident that make prevention possible. Now more than ever, increased awareness and relevant training on how to prevent and respond to violence are essential in today's environment.
Violence is a byproduct of the interaction between the physical setting, triggering conditions, and individual factors. This webinar by expert speaker Peggy Mitchell Clarke will explain the spectrum of violence and review how these factors contribute to the escalation of a violent attack. Evaluating behaviors of concern and selecting appropriate and proportional responses helps in assessing and mitigating risks associated with campus violence.
Peggy will help you learn to recognize behaviors of concern and identify pre-incident indicators to violence. You will also learn strategies for preventing campus violence and creating a culture of safety. But if there were an active shooter on your campus, would you know what to do? Peggy will also clarify what to do when someone poses a risk of violence and how to respond in an active shooter incident.
Examples of topics that will be examined during this session include the following:
