Today, crisis management is the responsibility of all educators. This dramatically expanded publication provides a structure and process for effectively managing the wide spectrum of school-based crises. It is an invaluable resource in preparation for, and during, actual crisis situations and continues to serve as a meaningful standard for our schools.

A Practical Guide for Crisis Response in Our Schools conveys critical information to assist schools in responding effectively to "everyday crises" as well as school-based disasters. It is an invaluable resource for administrators, support personnel and faculty.

By reaching our school families early with a comprehensive Crisis Response Plan, we can potentially prevent the acute difficulties of today from becoming the chronic problems of tomorrow.

The Guide offers:

  • strategies to potentially prevent violent school-based tragedies
  • help to educators to identify students who may be at greatest risk and know when to refer to support staff a protocol for managing crisis situations
  • discussion of practical strategies for addressing the emergent needs of students during times of crisis.

Being proactive, we can address the needs of vulnerable students early on, keep people functioning, mitigate ongoing emotional suffering and maintain the educational process.

With over 150 thousand copies in print, this guide is the most widely utilized school crisis response plan in the world.
