The PREPaRE School Crisis Prevention and Intervention Training Curriculum (PREPaRE), 2nd Edition, is designed to help schools meet the crisis prevention and intervention needs of students, staff, and families. PREPaRE is the only comprehensive curriculum developed by school-based professionals with firsthand experience and formal training. The curriculum builds on existing personnel, resources, and programs' links to ongoing school safety efforts, provides for sustainability, and can be adapted to individual school needs and size. A primary goal of PREPaRE is to build crisis management capacity at the local level and is part of the National Association of School Psychologists’ decades-long leadership in the field of school crisis response. Crises that affect schools range from natural disasters, terrorism, and pandemic disease to school violence, the death of students or staff members, and economic distress. How schools respond can shape the immediate and long-term effects of a crisis on a school community. Training and preparedness are critical to effective response and recovery.
