Workshop Description

School psychologists are often called upon to assess the level of risk, including both risk for self-harm and threats to others, of a student in our school. Completing such a risk assessment can be a challenging and intense experience for even the most experience practitioner. 

This workshop will provide the perspective of a panel of three different school psychologists on risk assessments. A balance of school based practice and consulting practice will allow for a rich discussion of the many factors involved in risk assessments.  After presentations by each panel member, a work session will allow participants to focus on developing their own practice around risk assessments or develop strategies for advocating for a broader role in risk assessments in their district. 


Target Audience

This workshop is available to current NHASP members at a special reduced rate as a membership benefit. It is appropriate for practitioners at the elementary, middle, and high school level.  


Learning Objectives

Participants in this professional development session will be able to:

  1. Outline the ethical considerations of conducting risk assessments in schools
  2. Discuss the role that school psychologists have in conducting risk assessments and being apart of school safety teams
  3. Identify different assessment tools and methods in order to conduct risk assessments in schools
  4. List the benefits and limits that risk assessments have in public school settings
  5. Discuss the different formats of completing risk assessments that are correlated to the purpose and procedures outlined by the school districts
