Responding to Crisis at a School. A Resource Aid Packet.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for Mental Health Schools.
Schools are increasingly confronted with crisis events. This resource aid packet provides materials to facilitate planning and implementation of a school-based crisis response and related staff training. The packet is divided into four sections. The first offers a brief overview that can be shared with school staff to raise awareness about the need to plan and implement a response to school-based crises. The second section provides a set of guides and handouts for use in crisis planning and as aids for training staff to respond effectively. These include: (1) "Some Key Considerations in Establishing a System for School-Based Crisis Response"; (2) "Major Facets of Crisis Response"; and (3) "Responding to Crises: A Few General Principles." The third section contains materials to guide the organization and initial training of a school-based crisis team. The final section contains materials for use in ongoing training and as information handouts for staff and, in some cases, students and parents. Topics include community and gang violence, suicide, and family violence. (Author/SLD)
