From the Author
I am a police psychologist with an extensive background in violence prediction. I have utilized my training and experiences in this area, as well as practical solutions drawn from the world of workplace violence, to devise interventions to the growing and tragic problem of Schoolplace Violence in today's schools. I originally wrote this book in 1998, when the world still associated the word "columbine" with a flower. Unfortunately many people (including publishers) were still in denial that Schoolplace Violence is, and will continue to be, a serious problem until our society chooses to do something about it. I have designed the book to be utilized as a reference manual for in-the-moment management of threatening situations, and as a guide for implementing long-range proven prevention techniques. By emphasizing the myths that surround violence in our culture, I have tried to bring violence out of the shadows and demonstrate that these incidents are always predictable, and therefore preventable. After finishing this book, readers will have increased understanding of what causes perpetrators to commit these heinous crimes, and will have at their disposal a myriad of effective intervention strategies. My goal in writing this book was to empower those in a position to do something about this increasing problem in today's schools, with the hope of preventing others from suffering the same fate of those previously devastated by acts of Schoolplace Violence.
