What can you do to prepare for a potential crisis in your school? This daunting question is addressed in Mary Margaret Kerr’s School Crisis Prevention and Intervention. As a respondent to over 1,000 school-related crises, Kerr provides a realistic and detailed guide to approaching school crises at all stages, from preparation and prevention to intervention and recovery. Following a four-phase conceptual framework, Kerr walks you through the planning and implementation of crisis prevention and response and provides you with the tools necessary to develop a crisis prevention and intervention toolkit specific to your school.
