Creating a Crisis Plan: Helping Your Community Respond to Loss
by Creating a Crisis Team and Plan of Action

This training will provide participants with developmentally appropriate tools and strategies for helping children and adolescents cope with death, dying and loss. Working interactively, we will discuss how to create a ‘crisis’ or ‘caring’ team and a crisis protocol or plan of action. Being prepared with a plan of action before a crisis occurs, will help those involved to feel empowered instead of overwhelmed. Participants will learn how to create a physically and emotionally safe environment in which students and faculty can understand, grieve, commemorate, and go on when a school faces a crisis involving loss.
