可以应对令人不寒而栗的 TikTok 挑战威胁 3 方法, 专家说

PARENTS across the country were left concerned after a warning was issued this week over a TikTok challenge threatening violence against schools on December 17.

The origin of the challenge remains unclear, but it allegedly evolved into threats of violence including bomb threats and shootings, prompting many schools to step up security in their campuses on Friday.

While the warning did not materialize, it’s important to be vigilant about potential threats in schools and workplaces, as they have increasingly become targets for violent actors.

In an exclusive interview with The US Sun, clinical and forensic psychologist and professor at the University of Arizona Dr Joel Dvoskin explains three different ways of dealing with school threats.

TRAINING

All organizations- 学校, corporationsshould have a strategy for dealing with threats around the workplace,” said Dr Dvoskin.

Dr Dvoskin recommends identifying some people in the establishment and getting them extra training on how to recognize a threat, how to decide on

its imminence, its severity, its duration, and its likelihood, as well as how to decide what steps would make sense to decrease the likelihood of harm.

If a kid makes a threat to a teacher and the teacher decides whether or not it’s serious, the teacher just became the threat assessor, and they have no training in threat assessment,” said Dr Dvoskin.

On the other hand, if the teacher can refer it to the administration, who in turn can turn to a team of people who have been trained to do threat assessment, and the first thing they do is ask a lot of questions.

What exactly did he say? Who heard it? Are you sure that it was said? Did he say anything to anybody else? Have they gotten into any other kind of trouble? What do you know about that person?”

LEARN TO RECOGNIZE THREATS

The second way to deal with potential danger s by learning how to recognize a threat.

Dr Dvoskin told the US Sun that schools should be teaching both students and teachers how to identify threatening behaviors and report it.

He added that’s it’s also important to make it easy to report the potentially threatening person or situation.

BE HELPFUL

最后, when dealing with a potential threat it’s important to be helpful when addressing the situation.

The presumptive response to people who scare other people should be helpful,” according to Dr Dvoskin.

So if somebody is scaring other people because they’re in distress, maybe we should get them some help rather than suspending them or expelling them or making their life even worse.

The expert said the goal of these things is to identify troubling people and scary situations as early as possible, “and then have a system in place to make a determination of whether anything needs to be done.
