Conferences and Workshops

The Bulletproof Mind - Protecting Our Children

Click "More Info" to learn more!

More Info

Free training courses are being offered in Montebello and Santa Barbara, CA, on "The Bulletproof Mind - Protecting Our Children." Taking place on May 15 and 16, this is for area school administrators, teachers, and first responder personnel.  Unfortunately, violence at our schools and the workplace seems to be an increasing reality.  Law enforcement professionals wanted to offer some helpful tactics and training to help mitigate this threat, so these courses were developed. The speaker is nationally recognized as an expert on handling crisis events and some of his videos are on YouTube. 

Click here for the Montebello flyer and here for the Santa Barbara flyer. To register, follow the directions to the web link indicated on the flyer.
This information was shared with us by the principal of one of our PSD schools, and one of the school parents works in this field
