Schools, colleges, and communities react in their own unique way to trauma. Traditional crisis response in schools, colleges and universities is typically a short-term intervention immediately following the incident.
The approaches to understanding and intervening from a systems perspective is one factor that makes the Canadian Centre for Threat Assessment and Trauma Response (CCTATR) approach truly pioneering.
VTRA has been referred to as the “ missing link” in violence prevention. It is the process of deliberately trying to “connect the dots” or data that paints the picture that someone is moving on a pathway towards serious violence before the violent act occurs.
In Level II VTRA Training, Kevin will review the foundational concepts which ground the science of Threat Assessment, continue to encourage the development of common responses within communities and regions, expand on the nature and value of the multidisciplinary approach and promote early identification of appropriate interventions.
In addition he will focus on Clinical Interviewing of key individuals in the VTRA process and take the group through a more comprehensive look at types of high-risk youth. Still development using cases will be emphasized.
