Dr. Scott Poland will be presenting Assessing Threats of Violence and Suicide in Schools: Legal Issues and Case Review
The incidence of threats of violence and suicide requires that schools have well trained threat assessment teams. Many questions have been raised about the ethical and legal responsibilities for school psychologists in threat assessment. Dr. Poland has been an expert witness in more than a dozen cases where schools were sued after a tragedy and will share the outcome of those cases and the lessons learned for prevention and intervention. Several of those cases questioned the competency of the suicide and/or violent assessment done by school personnel. Practical best practices for school psychologists in conducting thorough assessments of threats and how to avoid liability will be outlined.
