The Role of School Crisis Intervention Teams to Prevent and Reduce School Violence
Although the frequency and severity of school crisis and youth violence have increased dramatically in recent years, many school psychologists and administrators still lack training in crisis intervention. Few schools have been prepared to manage a crisis and little emphasis has been placed on prevention activities. Th is article provides a framework for schools to guide crisis intervention efforts. Practical examples are provided to assist schools in examining their resources as they develop crisis intervention teams. School safety techniques being utilized nationally are outlined. School crises and youth violence represent an opportunity for school psychologists to broaden the role of school psychology.
