This seminar is classroom based and jammed with media, including crime scene photos, original videos, active shooter videos, and information known only to the killers themselves. This seminar is fast-moving and will cover over 30 juvenile homicide cases, including school shootings, family murders, mall shootings, cult killings, media-inspired killings, gang killings, and thrill killings. This course will teach attendees the top ten reasons juveniles kill, the six types of teen killers, the warning signs that were missed, and ways we can keep our schools and communities safe. Phil will take attendees back in time, exploring the history of juvenile homicide, which dates back to 1786, and will discuss the first acts of school violence, which began as early as 1944 and 1956. Phil will also give attendees a dose of youth culture, familiarizing attendees with today’s teen entertainment, including video games, music, and movies. Phil provides a side of teen murder that nobody else can really provide, and that is a description of the crimes from the killers themselves, whom Phil has spent over 30 years interacting and building a relationship with. He provides answers to questions everyone is asking, like “Why did they kill?” “Were there any warnings signs?” and “Could the victim’s have done something different and survived?” Phil also warns that he will take attendees “Inside the Mind of a Teen Killer,” which is a very dark and disturbing place, and some may find the content of this seminar troubling, offensive, and disturbing.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND Law enforcement in all areas, School Resource Officers, Prosecutors, DARE Officers, Detectives, Homicide Investigators, Sheriffs, Sheriff’s Deputies and Police Officers, Police Chiefs, Military Officers, Corrections Officers, School Administrators, Principals, Teachers, School Superintendents, Youth Workers, Judges, Probation Officers, and Youth Counselors.

COURSE OVERVIEW This course is classroom based using multimedia to review hundreds of juvenile homicides and juvenile mass murders. This course will teach attendees what warning signs to be looking for, and what causes teens to carry out these shocking and senseless murders. Attendees will review crime scene photos, hear from investigators, and discover what went right in these cases, and what went wrong. Phil will also educate the attendees on the history of teen murder, the six types of teen killers, and what makes this new wave of killer tick, which was warned about long ago by the FBI’s J. Edgar Hoover. You will not only hear from investigators and detectives, but from the killers themselves- why they did what they did, and how they felt about detectives and investigators. Attendees will also get a look at today’s youth culture, including the latest teen entertainment and teen trends, social media and teen culture. This course is classroom based, and attendees can download a workbook to use to reference and review after the class.
