Workbook for Preventing Catastrophic School ViolenceISBN: 9781475812428
This workbook offers a comprehensive review of existing violence prevention programs, which can help schools evaluate their existing programs and select the right approach for them. Author Dr. Jared M. Scherz offers practical guidance on building a prevention paradigm that integrates into the existing mission and vision of a given school. Scherz breaks down this paradigm into measurable areas including parent involvement, the use of technology, and the role of social media in violence prevention. The main thrust of this book is the creation of an Early Warning Violence Detection and Prevention System (EWDPS), based on the Potential for Violence Inventory (PVI) outlined in the book. The EWDPS and PVI are the basis for upcoming software that will become the future of violence prevention on this country.
