A hub of information, training, and resources

for holistic violence prevention.

Free Webinar- “Responding to Shooting Threats: Strategies for Schools”

What is holistic violence prevention?

Holistic violence prevention addresses the complete systems of pathways and precursors to violence. Rather than focusing on a single solution, holistic prevention examines and responds to the root causes of violence at the individual, institutional, and societal level.

The Off-Ramp Project provides a three-pronged approach to preventing violence.

A hub of resources focused on mental wellness, peer support, mentoring, advocacy, suicide prevention, crisis intervention, and trauma organized by state.

Online professional development and training for parents, educators, HR professionals, policy makers, counselors, law enforcement, security, and more. 

Accessible, data-driven policy recommendations to prevent mass shootings for local, state, and national policymakers, as well as schools, workplaces, and media.  

Crisis Response Teams Protocol

The R-Model™ is a violence prevention protocol for K-12 schools, workplaces, and organizations that reimagines traditional behavioral “threat assessment” and advances multidisciplinary Crisis Response Teams. We have developed downloadable PDFs of our step-by-step protocol, printable handouts, and fillable forms for anybody who wants to implement our data-driven violence prevention model.
