The Westminster College Department of Psychology will host Jerome Flint for its spring colloquium Monday, April 2, at 5 p.m. in Hoyt Science Resources Center's Phillips Lecture Hall. The program is free and open to the public.
Flint, senior training associate for JKM Safe Conflict Management, will present "Keeping People Safe: Crisis Intervention Research." Included will be a recent collaboration with Dr. Sandra Webster, Westminster professor of psychology, that investigated 400 participants in a re-certification course and focused on trainers' abilities to detect intervention errors. Additional topics include current activities and future directions in child safety intervention research.
Flint earned a master's degree in psychology from Slippery Rock University. He has experience at George Junior Republic, Vision Quest International, and as adjunct faculty in Westminster's psychology department. In his current position, he trains mental health professionals, educators, and youth workers in managing child and youth physical conflict to minimize current and future physical and psychological harm to the child.
