School Crisis Management

 

School Crisis Management 

Crises often occur suddenly, disrupting one’s usual coping mechanism. A crisis could be triggered by events such as the suicide or accidental death and critical injury of a student or staff, as well as violent incidents, natural disasters, etc. Often, it will upset a school’s equilibrium and may trigger emotions in students, parents and school personnel.  The Handbook on School Crisis Management : Intervention and Psychological Support in the Aftermath of Crises aims at supporting schools to provide appropriate intervention and support services to affected teachers and students during the aftermath of crises. The Handbook introduces the basic principles and operational procedures of crisis intervention and psychological support, provides a framework, roles and functions of the School Crisis Management Team as well as appendices containing checklists, samples of press release and parent letter, reference materials, etc. The Handbook can be downloaded from this link:
