Threat Assessment & Management in Schools:
Foundations for Practice Workshop: Dr. Gene Deisinger

June 21st 8:00am – 4:00pm

School administrators, staff, mental health professionals, and law enforcement officers are increasingly involved in the assessment and management of persons who engage in threatening and volatile behaviors. Such persons can include current and former students, parents/guardians, teachers, administrators, or other staff; as well as other persons not affiliated with the school. These individuals can be highly disruptive both in school/workplace settings and in the community at large. Their behaviors may range from tactics of bullying and intimidation to stalking and harassment, to acts of violence that devastate a school, workplace, family, or community. Incidents from around the world have underscored the ongoing need for collaborative and integrated strategies to prevent violence where possible and to mitigate the risk of harm where necessary. This workshop will help participants to better understand the dynamics of targeted violence; develop and enhance strategies for early identification, assessment, and intervention with concerning situations; and will provide opportunities to practice application of the principles learned. 

This full-day workshop will include training in foundational practices regarding behavioral intervention and threat assessment & management for members of school Threat Assessment Teams and key stakeholders.

Who Should Attend?

Threat assessment/behavioral intervention team members, School Resource Officers, law enforcement, school safety officials, public safety personnel, mental health professionals, event security staff, venue managers, emergency management personnel, risk managers, human resources, legal personnel, school administrators, teachers and anyone else interested in learning more about threat assessment.

About Us

The Idaho Threat Assessment Conference (ITAC), in its 7th year, exists to provide threat assessment training by and for local, state, and federal law enforcement, government agency officials, and school behavioral intervention teams from around the country. The conference features law enforcement officials and other subject matter experts who use recent incidents like mass shootings and other crimes of targeted violence to educate attendees on best practices — and lessons learned — in threat assessment and response. Past topics include the Mandalay Bay Active Assailant Incident, Sandy Hook, Columbine, domestic violence and stalking incidents, as well as other case studies presented by the U.S. Secret Service, the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit, crime victims, and law enforcement departments from around the country.  

This conference is co-sponsored by the Boise Police Department, which enables officers to earn POST credit for attendance.
