Safe Communities: Violence as a Public Health Crisis

Erich Lindemann Memorial Lecture at William James College
1 Wells Ave., Newton MA

We are living through an epidemic of acts of major violence in our community, heightening fear, revulsion, and anger. This is a public health issue, an assault on our communities, rather than many individual acts. We struggle with responses that range from building defenses against these acts and actors to dealing preventively with the conditions and maladaptation that leads to this violence. Our speakers bring much research, experience, and thought to this catastrophe, and will help us to understand and respond.

Keeping Our Schools Safe: What Every Educator Should Know About Safety Assessment 2020

William James College

This webinar presents an overview of a comprehensive school safety assessment approach for students whose behavior raises concern about their potential for violence. This presentation will draw from Dr. Rappaport’s research and clinical work as a child psychiatrist consulting to schools to present a model that can help prevent school violence while getting students and families the services they need. Targeted school violence is rare, making schools relatively safe places. However, every school must assess be familiar with basic concepts for quickly and comprehensively assessing the safety of students who are volatile and may make threats, write a hit list, destroy property, or post concerning content online. The safety assessment model emphasizes understanding the context of the behavior and helping adults mobilize the resources needed to address the student’s and family’s needs and enhance the student’s safety, connection, and well-being. The content will draw from Dr. Rappaport’s publications, research, and experience with safety assessments in schools, as well as the work of the Safe Schools Initiative, Cornell & Sheras, and others.

Clinical Consultation Breakfast 7: Family is the Best Medicine: Strengthening Family Therapy Skills to Support Children in Crisis

American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry's 66th Annual Meeting
Chicago, IL

Presented by Dr. Rappaport and Dr. John Sargent

Cultivating the ability to strengthen families is vital to supporting children and adolescents in crisis. Attendees gain the ability to look at clinical problems as challenges for the family to resolve with help of the child and adolescent psychiatrist and develop skills that enable them to foster this collaboration. In reviewing cases presented by attendees, presenters look at common themes of families that are “stuck” and discuss approaches that enhance closeness, encourage effective limits, and build understanding and support in the family. Attendees learn to use encouraging interactions within and with families to alter problematic relationships and promote effective family function and recovery.
