Summary: A cutting edge book on school violence prevention and threat management.
Comments: Practically written, of tremendous value to Educators, Mental Health and Law Enforcement/Security professionals. (Drew)
"I found the book to be an excellent resource on a number of fronts...not just in the realm of threat assessment, but, for example, in the case study examples Dr. Mohandie offers. We receive numerous requests from researchers, reporters, and students of all grade levels regarding resources they can use in their work to understand school shooters. The book certainly offers such information and more. The book adds a timely depth of understanding to the realm of threat assessment given the heightened level of interest generated by the Secret Service's work. It also provides some excellent information on topics ranging from early warning signs with its break down categories to the legal issues which define the arena of school violence. It is also up-to-date!"
