How to Solve the Violence "Prevention" Issue on our Campuses with Scientific Reliability, in Just 4-Days!
Hi, my name is Dr. John Byrnes, I’m the Founder and CEO of the Center for Aggression Management. I realize that you are on this landing page because you are looking for a better solution to the issue of preventing bullying, harassment, abuse, discrimination, loss of trust, destructive conflict, as well as violence in a reliable way. But how?
Did you know that all Campus Police Officers are “Right of Bang?” i.e., they get involved after shooting has begun! It’s true! Why is this so important to understand?
- When an assailant decides to pull his weapon and start shooting -- the "Moment of Commitment" -- it takes two seconds before the first round is discharged. No Campus Police Officer, no matter how well trained or equipped, can reliably be on scene in just two seconds. But what does this mean?
- Sadly, all Campus Police Officers can do at that point is follow Active Shooter Response and step over dead, dying and/or wounded victims to get to the shooter. These victims are students, faculty, coaches, and staff!
- Have you ever experienced an active shooter? Were your Campus Police Officers forced to step over the dead, dying and/or wounded victims? What did you say to those who were injured; or those with post-traumatic stress disorder; and the families of those who lost their lives? Is this an acceptable outcome?
- There is a better solution! This solution is founded in science, but it is not for every college or university President! You must step beyond current thinking and paradigms. Can you step out of your current paradigms and consider a new approach that is founded in science? Ref: Dr. Claire Good, Ph.D (below)
- If you truly wish to prevent assaultive or violent behavior, you must know the behavioral cues (precursors) that lead to assaultive/violent behavior and what to do to stop it. You must get out in front of that horrific Moment of Commitment! We will show you how . . .
If you agree with me, join us for our Free Introduction to our scientifically reliable Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) and our fully functional CAPS Mobile app. We will explain how you can prevent that costly "Moment of Commitment" and thus prevent campus violence in the first place. You prevent a victim from becoming a victim and a perpetrator from becoming a perpetrator! Is there any better solution? Follow this link to register for our next Free Introduction to CAPS. If you need to read more, please continue reading . . .
- Using techniques that the FBI and the Secret Service refer to as "identifying someone on the path to violence," the Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) and its fully functional CAPS Mobile App help you identify the aggression-precursors to violence and thus prevent the horrific Moment of Commitment. Although we all know that there is no absolute (100%) violence prevention, with the help of these aggression-precursors there is scientifically reliable violence prevention.
- These same aggression-precursors also prevent bullying, conflict, abuse, harassment, assaultive behavior, and aggressive behaviors in the classroom. Only the scientifically reliable Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) and its fully functional CAPS Mobile App offers an unbiased scientifically reliable way to prevent this behavior from occurring.

- With the Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) and its CAPS Mobile App, you can prevent violence using unbiased, evidence-based Best Practices and thus demonstrate to campus management, clients, community leaders and the media that you are justified in recording, tracking and resolving aggressive behavior with CAPS .
- This video explains why current programs fall short of our expectations and then builds from ground up how and why our Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) works.
- As we all begin our journey out from under COVID, what will your journey look like? Are you ready for a new start founded in science?
- Are you tired of people on campus using subjective references to describe student/faculty behavior? The use of subjective references by accusers make it difficult for Faculty, Staff, Student Affairs, or Campus Police (Behavioral Intervention Team Members) to act and unfortunately these complaints lead down a rabbit hole that produces claims and counterclaims costing significant human capital without clearly defined outcomes.
- If you truly wish to prevent this kind of behavior and the potential escalation that follows it, you must understand and learn the behavioral cues (precursors) that lead to subjects of bullying, abuse, harassment, discrimination, conflict and even violent behavior and you must know what to do to stop that behavior. All of this can be found in the fully functional CAPS Mobile App. To learn more about the CAPS Mobile App and how to acquire it, select the CAPS Mobile App purchase button for only $49.95!
- Often educators are spending thousands of dollars and human capital on programs like bullying, harassment, abuse, discrimination, conflict resolution, and violence prevention. However, the word “bullying” represents someone exhibiting bullying behavior, right? You are only reacting to “bullying behavior,” you are not preventing it! This reality also applies to the other subjects of harassment, abuse, discrimination, and conflict. Sadly, the same applies to violence. However, each of these behaviors described above are simply “aggressive behavior,” which come with built-in precursors that enable you to get out in front of these malicious/aggressive behaviors and prevent them before that happen. The Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) comes with scientifically reliable precursors that permit you to prevent bullying, harassment, abuse, discrimination, conflict resolution, and violence. With CAPS you can not only prevent a victim from becoming a victim, but you can also prevent a perpetrator from becoming a perpetrator?
- Our CAPS video explains why current programs fall short of our expectations and then builds from ground up how and why our Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) works.
- One of the greatest losses within any college or university system is the “loss of trust” between students, parents, faculty, coaches, and staff, which directly diminish essential elements of Teamwork, Leadership and Student Learning.
- No longer does anyone need to address aggressive behavior with subjective reference. CAPS Mobile App offers objective, measurable, definable observables that can, in a measured way, significantly enhance productivity by reliably and systematically identifying and raising awareness to unwanted behaviors in a way that is objective, and does not violate HIPAA, FERPA in our schools, and/or the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
- If you truly wish to prevent this kind of behavior and the potential escalation that follows it, you must understand and learn the behavioral cues (precursors) that lead to subjects of bullying, abuse, harassment, discrimination, conflict and even violent behavior and you must know what to do to stop that behavior. All of this can be found in the CAPS Mobile App. To learn more about the CAPS Mobile App and how to acquire it, select the CAPS Mobile App purchase button for only $49.95!
- The Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) and its CAPS Mobile App enable faculty, coaches, and staff to identify the precursors to “distrustful behavior” thus offering an opportunity to prevent distrustful behavior, thus enhancing Teamwork, Leadership and Student Academic Learning!
SUMMARY: PREVENT THE NEXT CAMPUS SHOOTING
- Scientifically reliable methods overcome systemic flaws and help you prevent violence before it’s too late.
- When an assailant decides to pull his weapon and start shooting -- the Moment of Commitment – it typically takes just two seconds before the first round is discharged. Campus Police Officers, regardless of training or equipment, cannot reliably arrive on scene in just two seconds. Sadly, once an assailant reaches their Moment of Commitment, all that a Campus Police Officer can do is follow their Active Shooter Response Training and step over dead, dying and/or wounded victims to get to the shooter. Those victims are students, faculty, coaches, and staff. Is this acceptable to you?
- Using techniques developed by the FBI and the Secret Service, the Center for Aggression Management can train you to identify the sequential, successive precursors to school violence and prevent future violence. These same methods can be used to prevent bullying, discrimination, and the loss trust. Aggression continues to permeate our schools and our Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) offers a reliable solution.
- CAPS provides scientifically reliable, intuitively based, objective, measurable observables, which do not violate HIPAA, FERPA or the Civil Rights Act of 1964. CAPS offers students, teachers, faculty, staff, and parents the ability to reliably See Something and Say Something without bias or fear of losing their reputation or jobs. This means that everyone within a school environment with CAPS skills will more readily and reliably say something about problematic behavior before it turns violent.
- CAPS creates a common language that all departments can easily understand and utilize so that they can trust each other’s judgment. For the first time, CAPS connects the responsibilities of mental health professionals, human resource, student services and student affairs with campus security through a common language, thus blending these multidisciplinary departments in a harmonious and cohesive way.
- Here is what Dr. Claire Good, Chair of Eastern Kentucky University’s Student Assistance and Intervention Team (SAIT) stated in writing to John D. Byrnes, Founder and CEO of the Center for Aggression Management after two years of use:
- CAPS’s Meter of Emerging Aggression has produced evaluations and results consistent with the observations of those on our Student Assistance & Intervention Team (SAIT), as we work at tracking students on our campus who are behaving in ways that concern faculty, staff, or others in the campus community.
- It is the intended purpose of the SAIT to assist, not punish, students. As we have now utilized your CAPS program (training, and the Meter of Emerging Aggression (MEA) software) for two years, it has become very clear that having a system in place that allows us to look at the totality of circumstances, regarding a student’s behavior in an objective way, we are now able to truly assist and/or intervene in a timely, appropriate manner with a focus on a preventive result.
- We are able to place all information into the Incident Report (IR) as we gather it. The MEA is now placed directly on the IR as a graphic representation that allows us to see evidence of any emerging aggression. We have found our response to be closely linked with MEA.
- Our campus legal counsel is very pleased that we are using the CAPS training and MEA software to record all of the information we gather, including actions taken, in a clear, concise, and formal way.
- Utilizing your system has provided an opportunity for the members of SAIT to combine their professional knowledge and experience with the foundation grounded in your research in order to find ways to assist our students in resolving issues before they develop into crisis situations.
- I will end this brief narrative with my continued appreciation for your support, and your continued willingness to do all you can to enhance the efforts of EKU to identify and assist or intervene with students who have been identified as “students of concern”.

A MORE IN-DEPTH LOOK:
NaBITA Threat Assessment Tool:
Is your campus using the NaBITA Threat Assessment Tool? As the founder and CEO of the Center for Aggression Management, I authored this tool. I was asked by NaBITA to contribute our Cognitive Aggression Continuum to what mental health professionals were using (distressed, disturbed, and dysregulated), which was far too subjective. By combining our Cognitive Aggression Continuum, we added significant objectivity to this calculation. It was meant to be used solely by mental health professionals; however, when we last checked it was being used in more than 177 campuses as a sole source tool to keep campuses safe. It was never meant to be used in this way because it is missing critical elements needed to bring your campus up to our standard of violence prevention. If your campus is using the NaBITA Threat Assessment Tool, we recommend you immediately use our Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS), which is the complete Threat Assessment and Prevention Tool.
Behavioral Intervention Team Members and the Use of Mental Health Assessments:
Students and their parents have an expectation that Behavioral Intervention Teams will identify potential violent actors and diffuse them through mental health assessments, but do these methods work? Is the use of mental health assessment reliable in identifying and preventing the next school shooting? Following the horrific Virginia Tech shooting the “Report to the President on Issues Raised by the Virginia Tech Tragedy, June 13, 2007 clearly stated, “Most people who are violent do not have a mental illness, and most people who have mental illness are not violent.” In fact, this study found that individuals with mental illness tended to be the victims of this behavior, not the perpetrators of it. Seung-Hui Cho, the Virginia Tech Shooter who murdered 32 innocents and then himself was mental health assessed on three separate occasions, and on each occasion, he was deemed to be, “Depressed and anxious but not at risk of hurting himself or others.” Incidentally, Nikolas Cruz, the Parkland Shooter who murdered 17 innocents, also was mental health assessed by the Florida Department of Children and Family and was deemed “not to be at risk of hurting himself or others.” Further, Jared Lee Loughner plead guilty to 19 charges of murder and attempted murder including Congresswomen Gabrielle Giffords in connection with the shooting in Tucson, Arizona. Clearly Mr. Loughner had a thought disorder and was probably schizophrenic, one of the scariest of mental disorders. We know that only .002% of those with schizophrenia have ever murdered others. How do you get from .002% probability to predicting the next shooter? You cannot!
Departmental Silos Make You Vulnerable:
I have spoken to many Directors of Campus Security or Campus Police Chiefs who have anonymously told me, “John, mental health, human resources, student services and student affairs professionals do not understand and respect the concept of threat well enough, so, we don’t share everything we have with them.” Then, when I speak with mental health, human resources, student services and student affairs professionals, they tell me, “John, we are concerned that campus security can get too heavy-handed, so we don’t share everything that we have with them. These departmental silos create gaps that aggressors simply walk though, exposing students, faculty, and staff to unspeakable harm.
