Important Note! Numbers below are links to that Section. If you close your browser (i.e. Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc..) your answers will not be retained. So write them down for future work sessions.

15. What is the legal consensus on the definition of a “true threat”?
16. According to Bailey, what are the constitutional law issues involved in using profiles to prevent school violence?
17. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, what are five effective strategies that have been used to reduce youth violence?

20. According to Bender, what are five common factors among rampage school shooters?
21. According to the U.S. Department of Education, what are three explanations for why rampage school shooters are usually male?
22. According to Arrendondo, what are three guidelines to helping students distinguish a threat that should be reported to adults?
23. According to Fast, what four negative experiences are sudden death survivors more prone to?
24. According to Furman, how does the sudden death of a child create a particularly intense form of grief?
25. In what way can grief workers help survivors of sudden death reconceptualize the world in a meaningful way?
26. According to Sewell, what is one problem with using the inappropriate use of firearms as a predictor for student violence?
A.  Inappropriately using a firearm can itself be considered violent behavior. Thus, it might be logically (and practically) inappropriate to consider violence as an early warning sign for violence. Violent acts, even those at a low level, merit intervention because they are violent, not merely because they are indicators that higher level violence is more probable.
B The parent mourns the loss of the child as well as the loss of a part of his or her self, since love for the child includes a narcissistic component.
C.  Three explanations are, 1. school is often a harsh environment for boys, 2. there is a pervasive lack of male role models in schools, particularly at lower grade levels; 3. in the early years, schools tend to emphasize skills in which girls generally excel (e.g., fine-motor control, sedate behavior, and high levels of language/communication skills).
D.  According to these courts, a "true threat" is a threat that a reasonable person in the same circumstances would find to be a serious and unambiguous expression of intent to do harm based on the language and context of the threat.
E.  According to Bailey, assigning students to alternative education programs based on a student's likeness to a profile could be seen as a deprivation of the right to equal educational opportunities and thus could pose serious constitutional questions.
F.  Ten historical items are: history of violence, history of nonviolent offending, early initiation of violence, past supervision/intervention failures, history of self-harm or suicide attempts, exposure to violence in the home, childhood history of maltreatment, parental/ caregiver criminality, early caregiver disruption, and poor school achievement.
G.  Sudden death survivors are more prone to experience a sense of unreality, of helplessness, heightened feelings of guilt about having failed to avert the disaster, and a strong need to blame someone for the crisis.
H.  1. There is no profile or single "type" of perpetrator of targeted violence; 2. there is a dynamic interaction among perpetrator, situation, target, and the setting; 3. there is a distinction between making a threat (expressing an intent to harm a target to the target or others) and posing a threat (engaging in behaviors that lead to a plan to harm); and 4. targeted violence is not random or spontaneous.
I.  Grief workers can help survivors of sudden death in this process by guiding them toward "grief projects" involving artistic expression or social activism.
J.  1. If another student emphasizes "killing" as opposed to a vague threat about getting back at someone; 2. if the person points out that they have access to a gun; 3. or if they seem to have a specific plan for how to kill someone.
K.  Five common factors are: emotional factors, alienation, prior warnings of violence, accessibility of guns, and a low or declining respect for life.
L.  Five effective strategies included skills training, behavior monitoring and reinforcement, cooperative learning, bullying prevention programs, and parent education programs.
