Testimony by Melissa Reeves
Communique, v38 n5 p6-8 Jan-Feb 2010
This article presents the testimony by Dr. Melissa Reeves, a school psychologist and faculty member in the school psychology program at Winthrop University. Dr. Reeves shares her view of the critical role schools must play in crisis response and recovery. In addition to being a graduate educator and a consulting school psychologist, Dr. Reeves is also a licensed special education teacher, licensed professional counselor, and lead developer of the PREPaRE School Crisis Prevention and Intervention Training Curriculum, with more than 15 years of direct experience helping schools prevent, prepare for, and respond to crisis events. Dr. Reeves' remarks focus on the significant role of schools in keeping children safe and healthy in the event of a crisis. After both 9/11 and the Gulf Coast hurricanes, people saw America's schools thrust into the center of the nation's crisis response. Not only did schools respond in the immediate aftermath of these tragedies, but they have been, in many cases, the sole source of ongoing support for children and their families during recovery.
