Project to Prevent School Violence Funded with 1.128 Million Euros
Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) Sponsors New Research Project at Freie Universität Aimed at Prevention of School Shootings and Violence at German Schools
№ 223/2009 from Aug 28, 2009
The next step will be to improve the state of knowledge about risk factors and warning signals for school shootings as well as the evaluation criteria for threats or intimations of violence and violent fantasies. In the medium term the project is expected to contribute to better possibilities for preventing violence at German schools and to the further development of training methods used at schools. In the long term it aims to provide comprehensive support and consultancy services in response to violent announcements.
