Course Objective

This training addresses the increase in particular kinds of school violence. Criminal Justice is seeing a significant increase in two areas of school violence. Those areas are technological based violence, known as cyber bullying, and female perpetrated violence, known as “mean girl” behavior. These recent increases in school violence are related.  Males and females are very different, especially in how they process anger, jealousy, rage and other high emotions. The ever-expanding technology has provided students with a powerful weapon in the war of school violence. This training is necessary for juvenile officers, school resources officers, probation officers, correctional officers and anyone who has ever interacted with a teenager. Practical suggestions are included in this training. Please bring specific problems to solve.
