Upcoming Training

Targeted Violence: Awareness and Prevention Strategies 

Preventing violence in our communities starts with empowering communities through training on how we can help those in need before there is a problem. Targeted Violence: Awareness and Prevention Strategies Training is based on a community health and strategic prevention framework. Topics include current threats of violence and extremism in the Bay Area, the radicalization process and behaviors that represent pre-incident indicators, community-based strategies and programs to help prevent targeted violence, and information on when and how to report behaviors.

These virtual trainings are free to attend and are funded through the Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships.
