Course Description:

Over the past 50 years, this country has seen escalating violence in its K-­‐12 schools as well as on college campuses including University of Texas in 1967, Virginia Tech, Columbine, Sandy Hook, and now Parkland. The problem is not only with students assaulting and shooting other students and teachers, but also with teachers verbally, and physically assaulting students.
This class will examine contributing factors that play into these tragic events by identifying the perpetrator’s profile, known or suspected triggers and what, if anything, can be done to prevent future occurrences. (Please note: This is a hybrid course. We will have one class meeting on Saturday from 9am -­‐ 5pm, and then you will have two weeks to complete the remaining online assignments. Visit or email for more details.)
