CTVP Personnel to Present on Multi-disciplinary Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention: High-risk, High-need Adolescents

During the MHS Public Safety Webinar, Dr. Frank Straub (Director of the Center for Targeted Violence Prevention), Dr. Alyse Ley, D.O. (Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist), Courtney Tassin, M.A., LPC (Crisis Intervention Programs Manager for the City of Aurora) and Sammie Wicks, M.A. (Senior Program Manager at the National Policing Institute’s Center for Targeted Violence Prevention), will present two different but complementary multidisciplinary models of intervention. The presenters will discuss innovative collaborative violence prevention models presented by both programs and case studies to demonstrate the need for these approaches.  They will also introduce valuable lessons for public safety, educators, behavioral health professionals, and juvenile/criminal justice officials. Specific emphasis will be placed on the need for collaborative multidisciplinary interventions to prevent acts of targeted mass violence that endure after mitigating the initial crisis.
