The PREPaRE School Crisis Prevention & Intervention Curriculum

WORKSHOP 2 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 school-associated crisis events. This workshop teaches participants 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 conduct psychological triage, respond to the psychological needs of the school community utilizing a multitiered approach, and examine the effectiveness of school crisis intervention and recovery efforts. This workshop is an excellent course for all professionals in your district who provide mental health crisis intervention services.

The NASP PREPaRE curriculum provides relevant school personnel with comprehensive training on how to establish and serve on school safety and crisis response teams. The second edition of the curriculum integrates the roles of existing school staff and community providers in terms of the five crisis preparedness mission areas (prevention, protection, mitigation, response, and recovery) and grounds them in ongoing school safety efforts. The curriculum incorporates basic principles articulated by the U.S. Departments of Education (2013) and Homeland Security (2008), as well as the Incident Command System delineated by the National Incident Management System (NIMS). 

The PREPaRE model emphasizes the following hierarchical and sequential set of 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


R—Respond to psychological needs

E—Examine the effectiveness of crisis prevention and intervention
