Youth Violence Prevention

Can school and community attacks by young people be prevented? Dr. John Van Dreal believes that when school and community members understand threatening behavior, know how to identify signs of attack, and can move quickly to assess and de-escalate a situation such attacks can be prevented. With the Salem-Keizer Cascade preventive behavioral threat assessment system as a model, this presentation will provide a template for building a sustainable, school-based prevention and threat assessment system composed of school behavioral intervention teams and community-based collaboration. The program will highlight how threats of violence can be systematically investigated and the degree of risk those threats indicate. This program will assist professionals from schools, mental health, juvenile justice, youth service agencies and related professionals to identify risk factors, prevention strategies and management options for potential violent behavior among children and teens.
Workshop Content:
• Youth violence, examining research and best practice prescriptive recommendations for assessment and management
• Dynamics and risk factors for reactive aggression, bullying behavior and targeted violence within in K-12 schools
• The use of preventive behavioral threat assessment, equity, inclusion, restorative practice and trauma informed care to decrease expulsions, arrests and dismantle the school to prison pipeline
• The application of the research and best practice recommendations into twenty essential assessment questions
• An examination of bias and how to avoid it through collaborative assessment and training
• A review of a two-tiered, preventive behavioral threat assessment process—school-site based (level 1) and community-based (level 2) which provides support and resources to each school’s Level 1 team—as exemplified by the Salem-Keizer Cascade Model
• Local and regional implementation resources and implementation issues within each school district and community
• Case study exercises as example of application

Workshop Objectives:
• Describe preventive behavioral threat assessment and management system for K-12 schools
• Identify the tools necessary to refine an existing violence prevention system and/or begin implementation of a new system
• List the best practice recommendations and risk factors for assessment and management
• Describe the assessment process that examines the dynamics and risk factors for reactive aggression, bullying behavior, and targeted violence within in K-12 schools
• Identify the components of preventive behavioral threat assessment, equity, inclusion, restorative practice, and trauma informed care to decrease expulsions, arrests, and dismantle the school to prison pipeline
• Show an awareness of bias and how to avoid it through collaborative assessment and training
