Managing School Crises
Schools Are Under Attack: Learn How to Help Your Staff
Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) in the College and University Setting
Date: January 21, 2022
Institutions of higher education are often confronted with critical incidents and traumatic events (student deaths, violence, natural disasters, campus scandals, etc.) that impact their communities. Further, best practice standards in the industry of higher education expect that college and universities establish plans to effectively respond to critical incidents, such as student suicide (HEMHA, 2014), as well as active shooter situations or natural disasters (US DOE et al., 2013). The CISM model provides guidelines for systems-level (e.g., strategic planning), large and small group, and individual interventions intended to mitigate the impact of the traumatic event on the well-being of community members and to facilitate referrals for further mental health counseling when warranted. The current training will provide an overview of CISM with considerations relevant to applications in college and university settings and will include an opportunity for guided practice in strategic planning through real-world examples of critical incidents that may occur on a college campus.

Designed to prepare school administrators and all educators for the inevitable crises that occur within schools and/or that effect those in schools, this training reflects the 3 most common phases of a crisis: pre-crisis planning, acute crisis response and post-crisis activities. Special attention is given to the most common pitfalls (those that pose the most threat to school personnel from a liability standpoint) associated with crisis response activities.
