A Comprehensive System for Threat Assessment & Management in the Schools-Training

 We’ll review the importance of providing an education environment where students and teachers feel safe. The two-day training will review the fundamentals of reducing school violence, detail the Salem-Keizer model of threat assessment and management, and highlight the collaborative, multi-agency structure of the Mid-Valley Student Threat Assessment Team, located in Salem, Oregon.  Furthermore, the training will review the steps necessary to establish a school district centered, multi-agency structure that provides the protocols necessary to assess and manage threats while supporting students and staff.

This workshop will be facilitated by:

John Van Dreal, School Psychologist and the Director of Safety and Risk Management Services for the Salem-Keizer School District
John has 30 years of experience in threat assessment and management, psycho-educational evaluation, crisis intervention, behavioral intervention, and security and risk management systems consultation.  In 1999, he began the development and implementation of the Salem-Keizer Model, a multi-agency student threat assessment system considered by experts to be a leading practice. Through that collaboration, he has worked daily with educators, law enforcement, trial court personnel, juvenile justice, and mental health personnel in the assessment and management of youth and adult threats of aggression within the schools, institutions, and the community.

These workshops are capped at 50 attendees so register early!

Lunch will be provided
