About The PREPaRE Training Curriculum

Schools play a critical role in crisis prevention and response, meeting not just the needs of students but also of staff, families, and often the local community.

The PREPaRE Curriculum provides 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 safety and crisis teams. PREPaRE is one of the first comprehensive nationally available training curriculum developed by school-based professionals with firsthand experience and formal training.

The PREPaRE training curriculum includes two core workshops, that can be conducted together or separately and two corresponding training of trainer (ToT) workshops.

PREPaRE curriculum developers/core trainers are leading national experts in school crisis prevention and response.

Read about PREPaRE’s implementation and practice throughout the country and internationally in a number of publications.
