According to the National Criminal Justice Reference Service, the number of homicide victims ages 15-17 has declined, but the percentage killed by firearms remains high. To hear of a school killing or shooting anywhere is tragic. However it often has an even greater impact when that violence hits close to home. Access to federally funded programs for preventing violence; school counseling; and programs such as Children, Youth, and Families (CYF) for difficult youths aren't always enough to manage their deep needs. Join Támara Hill, a licensed mental health and trauma certified child and adolescent therapist, as she explains how and why we must come together as a community to not only understand the violent behavior but diminish it. In this second session of a two-part series, Tamara discusses ways in which the school system can identify and support difficult and violent youths.

Definitely a little scary especially if you find yourself dealing with a student in a situation like this with no teachers immediately around. Currently reflecting on a situation that went poorly and trying to apply this to that situation and figure out what my missteps were.
