In this newly updated 2-day workshop, participants will learn how to meet the immediate needs of students and staff following a school-associated crisis event. Using updated research and crisis intervention strategies, this workshop covers how to prevent and prepare for psychological trauma, help to reaffirm both the physical health of members of the school community and students’ perceptions that they are safe and secure, evaluate the degree of psychological trauma, respond to the psychological needs of members of the school community, and examine the effectiveness of school crisis intervention and recovery efforts. This workshop is an excellent course for all mental health professionals working at all grade levels in your district who respond to crises.

PLEASE NOTE: After successful completion of one or both workshops, participants are eligible to attend the Training of Trainers (ToT). Successful completion of one or both of the PREPaREToT workshops allows participants to independently offer the corresponding PREPaRE workshops to others.
