High profile school tragedies are complex and affect multiple systems. School social workers are uniquely positioned to contribute to crisis management efforts in their schools because of their ecological systems training. This webinar will highlight some common elements of crisis management policies, evidence-based trauma interventions, and levels of training that school social workers should keep in mind when planning and preparing for major crisis events. Participants will be encouraged to use these highlights to evaluate their own level of training, their relationships with community resources, and their school’s crisis management policies and identify areas for improvement.
