Join the Hawai‘i Afterschool Alliance's four-part training series on SEL, behavioral management, and threat assessment with Leslie Baunach and Traci Effinger from the Hawai‘i Association of School Psychologists. This training is designed for afterschool and youth development professionals and educators. Each session will build off each other and culminate with a Community of Practice session for participants to ask questions, reflect and share challenges or successes in implementing what they’ve learned. We highly encourage people to attend all four sessions.
According to the U.S. Department of Education: Guide for developing high-quality school emergency operations plans (2013), research shows that perpetrators of targeted acts of violence engage in both covert and overt behaviors preceding their attacks. They consider, plan, prepare, share, and in some cases, move on to action. One of the most useful tools a school or facility can develop to identify, evaluate, and address these troubling signs is to develop a systematic way to addressing threats. The threat assessment initiative serves to protect the interest of those students or people involved in the incident and assist with follow through of aftercare.
