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.

I'm glad to see a PD topic that is not technology-based instruction. This is useful for any teacher, as these issues are becoming more common and more frequently diagnosed because of increasing awareness and recognition of problems.
