William James College - November 1st
Instructor: Nancy Rappaport, MD
This full-day workshop will provide schools with a roadmap to creating a safety assessment team, allowing them to understand how this team should work as part of a robust approach to school safety. Dr. Rappaport will detail her comprehensive school safety assessment approach for students whose behavior raises concern about their potential for violence. Individuals are welcome, but schools may wish to send their entire safety assessment team.
Participants will learn how to create guidelines for safety assessment and get buy-in from the school, how the safety assessment team fits with other parts of a school safety plan, how to differentiate transient versus substantive threats, which key questions to ask, and how to effectively communicate with families. They will collaborate to use role-play to practice interviewing students and reaching out to families and will work on case studies that will allow them to apply the principles they have learned and learn from each other’s rich experience.
WHEN: Friday, November 1, 2019 | 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM
