Situation Tables are one example of a preventative measure implemented to reduce victimization experienced by marginalized individuals. This community-based research project focused on the Situation Table online training that was released by Laurier University in 2016. It examined the overall effectiveness of the training and assessed gaps in the preparedness of human service providers following the training. Surveys were used to assess the readiness of members in the Haliburton, Kawartha, and Pine Ridge regions. Results indicate that the Laurier University Situation Table online training is effective in providing training with the knowledge, skills, and tools they need to start participating at the Situation Table. However, identified gaps may be addressed to improve participants’ sense of preparedness for the assessment of Acutely Elevated Risk, and to improve consistency across different Tables, and among members/agencies at a particular table.
