A 2-day Post-Congress Workshop has been added to the 12th World Congress schedule.
Workshop: ICISF’s “Managing School Crises: From Theory to Application”
Dates: Monday & Tuesday, February 25 & 26, 2013
Time: 8:00am – 4:30pm
Where: The Hilton Baltimore

Designed to prepare school administrators and all educators for the inevitable crises that occur within schools and/or that effect those in schools, this training reflects the 3 most common phases of a crisis: pre-crisis planning, acute crisis response and post-crisis activities. Special attention is given to the most common pitfalls (those that pose the most threat to school personnel from a liability standpoint) associated with crisis response activities.
Participants of this training are introduced to the CISM framework and specific intervention techniques that can easily be applied within the school setting. These intervention techniques are research-informed and widely recognized for their effectiveness. Participants will be given opportunities to explore the elements of effective crisis management through multiple group activities.
Group Crisis Intervention is recommended as a prerequisite but not required as an overview of intervention techniques will be provided.
