Best practices in crisis prevention and intervention in the schools
Chapter 8: Promoting Social Skills and Development of Socially Supportive Learning Environments, co-authored by Brian McKevitt, UNO faculty member.
Does your school have a crisis plan? Is it collecting dust?
Best Practices in School Crisis Prevention and Intervention offers educators, mental health professionals, and relevant community service providers the latest in theory and practice across the spectrum of issues involved in crisis management. Leading national and international experts contributed to 37 chapters that cover topics ranging from promoting school safety, identifying troubled youth, and community crisis response teams to natural disasters, school and war, and children’s grief. The book’s overriding message is that, if managed properly, crisis can be transformed into an opportunity to foster hope and resiliency as an antidote to violence.
