Class Notes:

This 1-day workshop provides a review of the crisis prevention and preparedness element of PREPaRE. Specifically, WS1 workshop provides school professionals with an understanding of how to establish and sustain comprehensive school safety, and crisis prevention and preparedness efforts (which are designed to help improve school climate, student behavior and academic functioning, student resilience, and staff crisis response capabilities). WS1 emphasizes the unique needs and functions of school crisis teams. It acknowledges the need for teams to be consistent with school structures, laws and the Incident Command System. It also reviews steps important to the development of cohesive and sustainable teams, and provides a model that integrates school personnel and community provider roles. The PREPaRE model aligns with a multitier delivery system and builds on existing personnel resources and programs, with particular emphasis on balancing physical and psychological safety. Finally, the workshop explores how to prepare for school crises by developing, exercising, and evaluating comprehensive safety and crisis plans. WS1 is appropriate for school-based mental health professionals, administrators, security professionals, teachers, and other staff who will be involved in school safety, crisis prevention, and crisis preparedness efforts.  Participants receive a book and CD with forms and guidance documents to help implement this model on their campuses.
