This is the first book of its kind to provide guidance on how to assess threats on campus and intervene before violence can occur. The Handbook presents the guiding principles and key practices of campus threat assessment and management. It details how to create a threat assessment team, identify students or employees who have raised some concern, determine whether those individuals pose an actual threat, and intervene to stop potential violence. The Handbook also details team composition and operations, and identifies a broad range of case management options to prevent harm and get help to persons in need. It describes how records should be maintained and how team members can share information while remaining within the boundaries of privacy and confidentiality laws. The Handbook includes useful checklists, reference guides and sample policies, procedures and forms. The authors have extensive experience in threat assessment and violence prevention.
