An Experienced and Qualified Approach
Social Emotional Learning | Student Mental Heath
SEL: Social-emotional learning (SEL) is the process of developing the self-awareness, self-control, and interpersonal skills that are vital for success in school, work, and life. Students with strong social-emotional skills are better able to cope with everyday challenges, and benefit academically, professionally, and socially.
SMH: Mental health problems can affect many areas of students’ lives, reducing their quality of life, academic achievement, physical health, and negatively impact relationships with friends and family members.
Solutions: SaSS works to improve student SEL and SMH through a facilitation of awareness, education, intervention, and response services.
Behavioral Threat Assessment | Situational Awareness | Active Intruder
BTA: Behavioral Threat Assessment training and team development provides a proactive, evidence-based approach for identifying individuals who may pose a threat to students and/or staff, and for providing qualified and effective interventions before a violent incident occurs.
