Flashpoint: Recognizing and Preventing Violence on Campus
This video focuses on Behaviors of Concern, which are the potential "signposts" that may indicate when a low-threat behavior may be part of a pattern that is building toward violence. According to the findings of the U.S. Secret Service Safe School Initiative, incidents of targeted violence at schools are rarely impulsive. The attacks are typically the result of an understandable and often discernible process of thinking and behavior. This training video strives to provide students and faculty with a sharper lens from which to more clearly view your campus community. We want to help you recognize when a low-threat behavior may be escalating toward possible violence.
