Why It's Possible to Prevent School Shootings - and How to Do It

In this webinar, Dr. Marisa Randazzo will explain what she and her team learned from their interviews with school shooters, from their analysis of decades of school shootings, and from their experience evaluating and intervening in thousands of threat cases. Randazzo will share information from her time at the Secret Service in first launching this research and in the decades she has spent training school, law enforcement, and mental-health professionals how to respond to threatening behavior and intervene to reduce risk - including understanding the pathway to violence and how to get someone onto a better path. The webinar will include examples of averted attacks, as well as case studies of school shootings.
