This book discusses practical steps and procedures that school counselors, teachers, administrators, and support personnel need to take in order to prepare for a crisis in a school or community (local or otherwise). The last decade has unfortunately been witness to an increase in violence in local communities and schools, nationally and internationally. And yet, there has been surprisingly little written about a comprehensive school and community approach to crisis prevention, intervention and management. This text fills a gap in the existing literature, providing sensible procedures and tips for a wide variety of circumstances, and with a clear and easy-to-follow approach. Included in the book are many vital resources and sample materials, such as safety checklists, sample letters, assessment tests, and guides for parents and faculty.
