LDCSB is hosting a Level I Violence Threat Risk Assessment Training program for approximately 100 personnel from area school boards, police services and community agencies this week. The program will be led by Kevin Cameron, one of North America’s leading Threat Assessment and Trauma Response experts.
The two-day program takes place on Thursday, February 11-Friday, February 12.
The goal of the training is to teach school administrators (principals and vice-principals), social workers, police officers, and other related partners (community mental health, social services, etc.) the multidisciplinary process of identifying people who may be on a pathway to serious violence, determining appropriate interventions and if a threat maker actually poses a risk. Serious violence is an evolutionary process and most people leave (intentionally or unintentionally) signs and indicators.
Participating groups include:
- School boards (LDCSB, Csc Providence, Conseil scolaire Viamonde)
- Area police services (London, Waterloo Regional, Woodstock, Elgin OPP)
- Community agencies (Craigwood Youth Services, London Family Court Clinic, WAYS Mental Health Support, and more)
