About the Session:

The primary purpose of this two-day training is to teach school administrators, counsellors, police officers, and other related partners (community mental health, social services, probation, etc.) the multidisciplinary process of determining if a threat maker actually poses a risk to a target or targets they have threatened. Teams also assess students who already have histories of violence and are concerned about further and/or more serious violence potential. Serious violence is an evolutionary process and most students leave (intentionally or unintentionally) signs and indicators. Teams are trained to become local experts at collecting data that helps to paint a clear picture of how high risk a student may be to carry out an act of violence towards themselves or others and what the appropriate intervention should be based on that data.

School Administrators, Counselling Staff who either coordinate or participate in the VTRA process in school settings. Mental Health Therapists, Human Services, Law Enforcement and other interested community partners
