How safe are our schools? How prepared for emergencies are the schools in which we work and send our children? Larry Jordan, one of the U.S. government's most respected trainers, has provided his knowledge and experience on security matters to many schools, who have found his advice and hands-on training invaluable. Now the author offers his assistance to you and to your school. This book provides school administrators and principals with a database and systematic survey with which to assess all aspects of physical security in any specific school. A school administrator can use the data gathered from this survey to identify and correct any security deficiencies that might exist. Crisis training programs within the school and with local law enforcement agencies will benefit directly from the survey. It will be essential for planning and executing successful tactical operation on school grounds, and it will provide local law enforcement agencies with information essential to their response to an actual crisis in-progress. We can make our schools safer, but not without the commitment of will and resources, and a good plan in place to handle any crisis before it happens. This book enables schools to take positive crisis prevention measures that will eliminate or mitigate risks related to and involving security. The book is accompanied by a CD containing forms for use in assessing school security.

Since the first edition was published in 1988, the role of crisis intervention and prevention has become central to mental health professionals working in the schools. Disasters such as hurricane Katrina, terrorist attacks both in this country and around the world, and various school shootings have greatly increased school crisis research and policy development. This book is designed for an introductory graduate course taken by students in school psychology, school counseling, and school social work. Section I provides a crisis response overview, section II deals with crises for children and adolescents and section III covers crises that manifest in adolescence. Discussions of the 16 most prevalent types of crises are covered in sections II and III and include their characteristics, causes, interventions, and preventive programs. All chapters will be updated, six heavily revised or totally rewritten by new authors, and two new chapters (chapters 8 & 19) have been added.

Published with the sponsorship of the Trainers of School Psychologists, this two volume handbook examines the essential tenets of the school psychology profession, critically reviews training and practice issues, and evaluates how traditional and changing skills and issues translate into meeting the needs of children and the systems that serve them. Volume II extends the discussion of the training of school psychologists from Volume I to an examination of issues critical to the practice of school psychology, focusing on the roles of the supervisor as trainer in different contexts. Each chapter raises issues for university training in a manner that facilitates the dialogue between university and field trainers. This volume also considers issues of professional development, credentialing, and developing a professional identity, topics that predominate in practice settings yet are typically not addressed in any school psychology text. It concludes by offering recommendations on how the collaboration between university and field-based education can be further improved in the future to anticipate and meet the needs of the next generation of professionals and the children in their care.

This book provides school administrators, school-based mental health professionals, and other educational professionals with the framework and tools needed to establish a comprehensive safe learning environment. The authors identify four necessary phases to achieve this (prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery) and provide numerous examples and tools to help readers create safe environments, while also addressing students’ academic, emotional, and social needs. An emphasis is placed on the importance of the balance between physical and psychological safety within a multi-tiered framework - it is not enough for students to know their school is secure; they must also feel they are safe and can turn to their teachers and school-based mental health professionals with their concerns. An accompanying CD contains several valuable resources, such as forms, handouts, articles, and monitoring tools.
