Give Members of Your School Safety and Crisis Team the Tools They Need to Succeed

As crisis events continue to unfold at schools across the nation, it has become more important than ever for school-based mental health and other educational professionals to lead the way when it comes to crisis management before, during and after they occur. The PREPaRE curriculum, developed by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP), was created to help schools improve and strengthen their school safety and crisis management and emergency response teams plans. The PREPaRE model was developed by school-based professionals with firsthand experience and formal training based on the following hierarchical and sequential activities:

  • P—Prevent and PREPaRE for psychological trauma
  • R—Reaffirm physical health and perceptions of security and safety
  • E—Evaluate psychological trauma risk
  • P—Provide interventions
  • a—and
  • R—Respond to psychological needs
  • E—Examinethe effectiveness of crisis prevention and intervention

The PREPaRE curriculum equips team members with the necessary skills to strengthen and improve your school’s safety, crisis management and emergency response plans by focusing on the five stages of a crisis: prevention, mitigation, protection, response and recovery. You may choose to have team members attend a workshop in your area or you can sponsor a workshop specifically for your school, district or other organization.
