Best Practices in School Crisis Prevention and Intervention.
Brock, Stephen E., Ed.; Lazarus, Philip J., Jr., Ed.; Jimerson, Shane R., Ed.
This publication on best practices in crisis prevention and intervention is divided among the concepts of primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention. The introductory chapter examines crisis theory and establishes a foundation for the comprehensive crisis prevention and intervention team. It also attempts to bridge the gap between theory and crisis intervention. Section 2, "Primary Prevention: Preventing and Preparing for Crisis Events," presents chapters that address preventing and preparing for crises. Sections 3, "Secondary Prevention: The Immediate Response to Crisis Events," and 4, "Secondary Prevention: Responding to Specific Crises," present chapters containing information that can be useful when responding to crises. Section 5, "Tertiary Prevention: Long-Term Treatment of Traumatized Individuals," offers a review of long-term rehabilitation issues associated with crisis, trauma, and loss. Although the activities described in Section 5 may be beyond the scope of the school-based crisis team, the information is included to explain how long-term treatment may be warranted with posttraumatic stress disorders. The chapters in Section 6, "Special Issues in Crisis Prevention and Response," look at additional issues crucial for the response to a crisis. Chapters are included on crisis prevention and the legal and ethical issues. Ideas for future research are also presented. (Contains 5 appendixes, 19 figures, 40 tables, and over 1,000 references.)
