Dr. Alex Rodrigues will be joining host David Prescott for a Safer Talk Webinar on Wednesday, March 15th, to discuss the serious issue of school shootings.
You can delve into this subject by reading this recent article by Dr. Rodrigues, which offers eight questions to ask school personnel in order to help prevent future mass attacks, such as school shootings. These questions focus on the process of managing threats, creating a response team, the information needed to make a report, the type of reporting system, where reported information is stored, and what can be done to address threats other than calling the police. They also help parents, adults and community members understand the importance of reporting possible threats, and encourage them to ask their local school or institution about their approach to dealing with threats.
The article includes a request form to get a free school safety guide.
