Before tragedy strikes, make sure your intervention team is prepared.

Despite their best and frequently heroic efforts, school crisis intervention teams often find themselves unprepared for the many types of tragedies they face. This timely text prompts crisis intervention team members to reevaluate their beliefs and practices and consider a new approach to dealing with school crises.

Author Charles M. Jaksec III, a longtime school social worker and crisis intervention team member, draws upon his extensive experience in discussing nine critical issues. Rather than serving as a step–by–step plan for responding to a crisis, these nine topics encourage readers to examine their approach to crises before they happen. An ideal book study for those involved in crisis prevention and intervention, this concise guide demonstrates how to meet the needs of all school member—students, educators, and noninstructional staff—and offers:

  • Illustrative vignettes with every chapter
  • Helpful tips for team members
  • Discussion questions to guide reflection and action

Arm your team with the knowledge it needs to proactively and effectively prepare for a school crisis.
