This full day program has been designed with the purpose of addressing the five  issues that are present in the vast majority of school shootings. It addresses how to intervene in a meaningful manner with troubled adolescents. For many adolescents,  rebellious acts make perfect sense as a way to express freedom and pull away from the values society attempts to instill in them. To gain freedom in life, some  rebel against the authority figures in their lives. Not all adolescents become violent shooters. For some adolescents this normal rebellion is elevated into the criminal behavior. The issue of troubled adolescents is very complicated, involving all arenas of society. This program will identify five components that exist in the  majority of all adolescent shootings. The program will suggest how the community and law enforcement can identify and intervene. 

Course Description
The news has been full of the incidents of troubled adolescents and the destruction they cause. Finding a solution is complicated and involves many areas of society, particularly law enforcement. The five  areas that need to be addressed will be explored from a psychological standpoint and from a point of view that will effect law enforcement. The role of law enforcement is increasing in the issue of troubled adolescents. The entire complicated process will be explored as well as how all of the components interact with each other.
