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.

This is a very well-organized session by a presenter who is realistic about the common causes that lead students to be difficult or violent and compassionate toward them, but also mindful of what teachers can and should do to help those students and protect themselves professionally. Well worth watching. Thanks!

I liked this webinar, I adopted my kids and also did foster care. It's so hard to have people understand when your kids have problems. If people only knew what some of these kids have been through, maybe they'd understand better why they are ODD, have conduct disorder, etc.

I wasn't able to attend the webinar, because I did not get the text reminder as I usually do (not sure why that happened). I live on the west coast and missed it. I really wanted to take this webinar!
