Acute traumatic events have the potential to significantly disrupt the learning environment as well as the psychological functioning of students, staff, and the school community. Such events range in size and intensity, though all require careful planning to address the comprehensive safety and recovery needs of a school. Such planning includes considerations of prevention and preparedness, establishing crisis teams and crisis communications, and the selection and delivery of appropriate interventions given demonstrated need. This chapter discusses best practices in school safety planning and approaches to recovery after an incident to address crisis-generated problems, prevent trauma, and help restore the learning environment.
