Learn about the theoretical underpinnings of the model, view session videos, and come away with some practical new skills you can incorporate into your existing practice. This training is appropriate for licensed mental health professionals working in any setting including private practice, community clinics or agencies, hospitals, and schools.
The next workshop is on Friday, March 24th from 12pm-2pm in Stamford, CT. Pre-registration required.
Threat Assessment Training
I offer a one-day workshop on The Comprehensive School Threat Assessment Guidelines [CSTAG]. CSTAG is an evidence-based model that teaches interdisciplinary school-based teams to respond to student threats of violence by assessing the seriousness of the threat and creating an intervention plan that addresses the underlying problem that led to the threat. This training is appropriate for administrators, school resource offices, and mental health professionals working in the school setting.
Sample Training Schedule
Rationale for threat assessment: Fears vs. Facts
How to conduct a threat assessment: Transient vs. Substantive Threats, Pathways to Violence
Special Topics: Bullying, Legal Issues, Liability, Confidentiality, Research Evidence
Case Studies and Group Exercises
CSTAG is listed in the federal government’s National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP) and is used in more than 3,000 schools in 41 states. Schools that use the Guidelines have lower rates of long-term suspensions, fewer alternative school transfers, and fewer bullying incidents. Students in these schools report less bullying, greater use of school counseling services, and more positive perceptions of the school climate than students in control group schools.
