Event Description

The Menace of Targeted School Violence needs to be stopped. Learn to Understand the Motives and Put a Stop to them.

When targeted school violence occurs, it usually doesn't just happen out of the blue and often other people know about the attacker's idea or plan to attack. There are also often pre-incident indicators to violence that we can recognize before violence occurs. School personnel, students, family, and community members sometimes fail to recognize or report pre-incident indicators to violence and behaviors of concern because they haven't been trained to know what to look for or haven't been empowered to tell someone. This webinar by expert speaker Dr. Peggy Mitchell Norwood will give you a better understanding and awareness of motives and pre-incident indicators that are related to targeted school violence. You will also learn how to respond when someone poses a risk of violence to an identified or identifiable target in a school setting.

Examples of topics that will be examined during this audio conference include the following:

  • Targeted School Violence
    • Definition and Examples
    • Motives for School assault
