    Interested in hosting a PREPaRE training in your district?

    June 3rd, 2013

    The PREPaRE curriculum has been developed by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) as part of NASP’s decade-long leadership in providing evidence-based resources and consultation related to school crisis prevention and response.  PREPaRE training is ideal for schools committed to improving and strengthening their school safety and crisis management plans and emergency response. PREPaRE 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 trainings can be scheduled by any sponsoring organization, school, district, etc. Sponsoring simply means that you are hosting and organizing the training.

    All individuals who receive PREPaRE training will gain a better understanding of the organization and function of a comprehensive safety and crisis team (Workshop 1) and/or the knowledge and skills necessary to meet the mental health needs of students and staff in the aftermath of a crisis (Workshop 2). See the PREPaRE brochure for more information: Prepare_Brochure
