From the Publisher

What is most appealing about Violence Goes to School is that it presents readers with concrete recommendations for tough problems. Suggestions for identifying threats, developing policies, profiling potential perpetrators, emergency protocols, and training are clearly articulated and very realistic. The authors make a strong case for understanding school violence like other violence in the workplace. The "Lessons Learned from Columbine" chapter is particularly illuminating. Readers will find this manual down-to-earth and to-the-point.

About the Author

Dr. John Nicoletti is the co-founder of Nicoletti-Flater Associates with his spouse Lottie Flater and has been a police psychologist in the Denver-metro area for over 25 years. Forty-five minutes after the first shots rang at Columbine High School he was on scene assisting at the Command Center. As students, teachers and support staff fled the building, Dr. Nicoletti provided on-site defusing. The evening after the Columbine massacre, he was present at Leawood Elementary, the staging area for victims families. In the days and weeks following the incident, Dr. Nicoletti conducted numerous debriefings and counseling sessions for law enforcement personnel, SWAT, the bomb squad, victim assistants, and investigators.

Over the last ten years, the Nicoletti-Flater private practice has expanded into the field of violence and violence prevention. After years of working with national corporations and government agencies, like the United States Postal Service, Dr. Nicoletti established himself as a national expert in workplace violence. In 1993, he co-published, Violence Goes to Work, a very well received prevention manual for employers. Dr. Nicoletti also co-wrote "Survival-Oriented Kids in a Violent World: A Skills Training Manual for Parents and Other Protectors." Dr. Nicoletti has conducted hundreds of workshops, training seminars, and consultations all across the country.

Dr. Nicoletti has received many awards for his distinguished contributions to the field of psychology. Most notably, in 1996 the Colorado Psychological Association awarded him the E. Ellis Graham award and in 1998 the American Psychological Association awarded him the Karl F. Heiser Presidential Award for advocacy on behalf of professional psychology.

Dr. Nicoletti received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Colorado State University in 1972. He has completed specialized training from the FBI and the DEA in such areas as criminal profiling and tracking, the analysis of threats and violence, and trauma intervention techniques. He is a member of the Association of Threat Assessment Professionals and the International Association of the Chiefs of Police. His one daughter is an elementary school teacher.

Dr. Sally Spencer-Thomas received her doctorate in psychology from the University of Denver in 1995. For the past eight years she has worked for both Regis University and Nicoletti-Flater Associates in the capacities of counselor and health promotion specialist. She is the state coordinator for the BACCHUS & GAMMA Peer Education Network and supervises Choices, the award-winning peer education program at Regis.

Dr. Spencer-Thomas has received specialized training in the areas of violence and trauma. During her tenure as an employee of the Denver Police Department, she served as a Victim Advocate, counseling and providing resources for families in crisis. Dr. Spencer-Thomas also developed expertise in trauma under the guidance of the National Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) at the Boston VA Medical Center. She has co-authored two chapters for the FBI, the first on domestic violence and the second on suicide. In the fall of 1999, she was invited to present to the FBI on police response to civilian suicide. Dr. Spencer-Thomas is also the co-author of several violence prevention books including Survival-Oriented Kids in a Violent World and Violence Goes to College (to be published Summer 2000).
