"I was truly impressed by Michael Dorn’s presentations on school violence, bullying, school emergency preparedness and schools and terrorism given at the University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Vietnam National University. The content was very relevant and useful as these topics are new here in Vietnam. Thank you ever so much for sharing with us such an excellent presentation.”
