PREPaRE Workshop I
This PREPaRE workshop will provide school-based mental health professionals and other educational professionals training on how to best fill the roles and responsibilities generated by their participation on school crisis teams. PREPaRE is one of the first comprehensive nationally available training curricula developed by school-based professionals with firsthand experience and formal training.

Specifically, the PREPaRE model emphasizes that members of a school crisis team must be involved in the following specific 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 a-and
R-Respond to psychological needs
E-Examine the effectiveness of crisis prevention and intervention

The PREPaRE curriculum has been developed by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) as part of NASP's decade-long leadership in providing evidence-based resources and consultation related to school crisis prevention and response. PREPaRE training is ideal for schools committed to improving and strengthening their school crisis management plans and emergency response. It provides training for school personnel in crisis preparation, prevention, intervention, response, and recovery procedures.
