John Van Dreal is a school psychologist with the Salem-Keizer School District and has over two decades of experience in psycho-educational evaluation, crisis assessment, behavioral intervention and systems consultation.Review:
In their analysis of current research and expert recommendations in the area of threat assessment, Van Dreal and his fellow authors have put into the hands of educators a formidable tool. Now, more than ever, the ability to accurately assess threat carries demonstrably monumental consequences of national significance. The organization of this critical information and research provides the means to save the lives of many by identifying and intervening with the troubled few. (Cheri Lovre, Crisis Management Institute)
John Van Dreal has long been one of the most critical and innovative thinkers in the assessment and management of threats in an educational setting. Making sense of the complexity involved in managing violently inclined situations at schools is no small task, but Van Dreal and his contributing authors, have done it here. They very effectively identify ways to establish responsibilities, professional roles and accountability. (Capt. Robert J. Martin, president, Gavin de Becker & Associates, Inc.; founder, Los Angeles Police Department's Threat Management Unit)
