Student and Staff Safety: Addressing the Significant Rise in Mental Health Needs and Violence
In this webinar, attendees will learn the observable behaviors people exhibit as they head down a path of violence so we can help prevent the preventable.
The impacts of prolonged stress, loss, grief, anxiety, depression and other mental health effects related to the pandemic have started to manifest themselves in challenging and concerning behaviors this school year.
In some parts of the country, schools are even shutting down due to the increase in violence that they are seeing. Leaders must prepare for and address the significant increase in social, emotional and mental health needs, as well as very real threats of violence.
As a mid-school year follow up to the session that Joe Hendry, PSP, CLEE gave at the Campus Safety Conference in San Antonio this past July, he will be providing updates on what schools across the nation have seen so far and how to mitigate risks moving forward, including the role active threat response training plays in a well-rounded safety program and how this life skill can be used in virtually any setting.
In this webinar, attendees will learn:
- The observable behaviors people exhibit as they head down a path of violence so we can help prevent the preventable
- What a trauma-informed approach is and why it is essential to active threat response training in K-12 schools
- The importance of providing life-saving personal safety skills to staff and students that can be used any time and anywhere
