Intervention = PERMIT is a holistic process/training/professional development that . . . brings about peace of mind for the schools/organizations and their community though not only changing the frame work of meeting the needs of others, but how to interruption pending violence though intervention.

This eight-hour course is designed as the fifth step in the progression of the PERMIT process. The course is designed to assist school or organization personnel in their ability to intervene through researched base intervention strategies that help reduce the potential of violence and active shooter situation.

This course will be broken into two modules.
The first portion will be a classroom portion covering the following areas: A presentation of the VISE lessons, an overview and historical examination of school intervention program, an examination of lessons learned in school setting; and historical data of the program used in an alternative school setting.

The second portion will be a practical hands on training block for participants consisting of six group lessons. During this block participants are encouraged to participate in order to practice the group lessons.

The group lessons in VISE are as follows:
1. Violence vs. Safety
2. In the Heart
3. Socialization vs. Dehumanization
4. Emotional Funnel
5. Anger Management
6. The Isms

Additionally we can conduct and evening seminar titled VISE for the Parents and Community” on the same evening as the course for parents and community members. Historically this method has been very well received and go a long way towards giving parents and the community in general peace of mind that their school district is doing everything they can to prepare for this worst case scenario event, as well, providing the parents and community member additional tools to help them work with high risk youth and youth as a whole.

The format for these presentation is a two hour interactive lecture in an assembly format that discusses history and data of this program, as well as, educating parents as to what they can do, as far as, discussions with their kids, as for as, the importance of the CHOICES culture and helping others help themselves. Additionally, we emphasize the statistics and realities that overall schools historically are very safe and caring places to be. These types of evening sessions for the community have been very well received.
