With the dramatic rise of murders, shootings, crime, and other tragic events in schools, school systems need guidance in developing plans and procedures for helping children respond to and resolve these crises. Preparing for crises in the schools helps school systems develop a proactive rather than a reactive stance in response to school-related crises.
STEPHEN E. BROCK, PhD, and SHARON LEWIS, MA, school psychologists with the Lodi Unified School District in Lodi, California, spearheaded the development of Lodi's crisis response team. Dr. Brock is also the author or editor of numerous publications on this topic, including Best Practices in School Crisis Prevention and Intervention. JONATHAN SANDOVAL, PhD, University of California, Davis, is the author or editor of several other books on this subject, including Crisis Counseling, Intervention, and Prevention in the Schools. He is also a past president of the American Psychological Association's Division 16 (School Psychology). All three authors have vast experience implementing crisis response plans and working with school administrators to evaluate their effectiveness.
