This article proposes a multi-level model for crisis preparedness and intervention in the Greek educational system. It presents: a) a brief overview of leading models of school crisis preparedness and intervention as well as cultural considerations for contextually relevant crisis response; b) a description of existing crisis intervention practices in Greek schools; and c) a model for crisis preparedness and intervention based on specific needs and characteristics of the Greek context. The proposed model consists of several domains including development of a synthetic conceptual framework, education and training, intervention, publications, and collaboration/partnerships. Finally, basic principles that need to be taken into account for the development of a multi-level model with cross-cultural and cross-national considerations regarding crisis preparedness and intervention are discussed. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
