The PREPaRE School Crisis Prevention & Intervention Curriculum 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 curriculum has been developed by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) as part of its decades long leadership in supporting school crisis prevention and response capabilities at the local level.

The PREPaRE training curriculum includes two core workshops that can be completed together or separately:

Workshop 1: Crisis Prevention and Preparedness: Comprehensive School Safety Planning (1 day)

This 1-day workshop provides school mental health professionals, administrators, security officers, and other educators knowledge and resources important to establishing and sustaining comprehensive, ongoing school safety and crisis prevention, mitigation, and preparedness. Making use of existing personnel, resources, and programs, PREPaRE can be adapted to a school’s needs and size. Specific attention is given to developing, exercising and evaluating safety/crisis teams and plans, and integrating school and community crisis response personnel. Also addressed are issues associated with the media, social media, technology, students with special needs, culture, and memorials. Training reinforces improved school climate, student behavior and academic functioning, student resilience, and school staff crisis response capabilities.

Workshop 2: Crisis Intervention and Recovery: The Roles of School-Based Mental Health Professionals (2 days)

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.
