School Safety and Crisis Response: PREPaRE

Register Now

PREPaRE provides school-based mental health professionals and other educational professionals training on how to best fill the roles and responsibilities generated by their participation on school safety and crisis teams. PREPaRE is one of the first comprehensive nationally available training curriculums developed by school-based professionals with firsthand experience and formal training. The curriculum is based on the assumptions that:

  • the skill sets of school-based professionals are best utilized when they are embedded within a multidisciplinary team that engages in crisis prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery;
  • school crisis management is relatively unique and as such requires its own conceptual model; and
  • by virtue of their professional training and job functions, school-based mental health professionals are best prepared to address the psychological issues associated with school crises.

PREPaRE Workshop 1, Second Edition, 2011
Crisis Prevention and Preparedness: Comprehensive School Safety Planning

This 1-day workshop provides school-based mental health professionals, administrators, security professionals, and other educators the knowledge and resources to help them establish and sustain comprehensive school safety and crisis prevention and preparedness efforts. With updated research and strategies, this workshop makes a clear connection between ongoing school safety and crisis preparedness. It also will emphasize the unique needs and functions of school teams and the steps involved in developing these teams, including a model that integrates school personnel and community provider roles. The workshop also explores how to prepare for school crises by developing, exercising, and evaluating safety and crisis plans.

  • Provides a broad overview of the school crisis team's roles and responsibilities, with a special emphasis on crisis prevention and preparedness
  • Per participant materials fee included in registration fees
  • Maximum size of the group: 100 persons

Who Should Receive Workshop 1 Training?
PREPaRE Workshop 1 is appropriate for all school personnel who need to understand how the comprehensive school crisis team is organized and functions. This can include but is not limited to school mental health professionals, administrators, teachers, other pupil services personnel, security officers, front office staff, transportation directors, and before and after school activities coordinators.

PREPaRE Workshop 2, Second Edition, 2011
Crisis Intervention and Recovery: The Roles of School-Based Mental Health Professionals
This 2-day workshop provides school-based mental health professionals and other school crisis intervention team members with the knowledge necessary to meet the mental health needs of students and staff following a school-associated crisis event. With updated research and crisis intervention strategies, this workshop teaches participants how to prevent and prepare for psychological trauma, helps to reaffirm both the physical health of members of the school community and students' perceptions that they are safe and secure, evaluates the degree of psychological trauma, responds to the psychological needs of members of the school community, and examines the effectiveness of school crisis intervention and recovery efforts. This workshop is an excellent course for all mental health professionals in your district who provide mental health crisis intervention services.

  • Provides a specific examination of the school-based mental health professionals' roles and responsibilities, with a special emphasis on crisis intervention and recovery
  • Per participant materials fee included in registration fees
  • Maximum size of the group: 40 persons

Who Should Receive Workshop 2 Training?
PREPaRE Workshop 2 is appropriate for any individual filling the role of crisis intervention specialist. This includes school mental health staff (school psychologists, social workers, counselors, and nurses), administrators, and other individuals whom the team has identified as appropriate providers of psychological first aid. Additionally, this workshop can be very helpful for community-based mental health practitioners who may work with the school crisis team and/or may be brought in to the school to assist in response to a crisis.
