We must continue to do all we can to be prepared when it does happen.  This course provides an intense look at the psychology behind a school shooter with a focus on ways in which a school shooting might be prevented, but ultimately to mitigate injuries and/or loss of life by being prepared and educated should the worst-case scenario take place.
