Lightning stormOne of your students begins coming to school with cuts along her arms.  How do you approach her to find out if they are intentional?

Supplemental Learning Materials


Crisis Resource Manual Catastrophic Events Resource Manual

The package course covers a lot of material, but even in ten hours we couldn’t cover every aspect of crisis response.  Cheri Lovre has developed the Crisis Resource Manual and the Catastrophic Events Resource Manual to work as preparatory aids before disaster strikes, as well as a vital resource to have by your side as events unfold.

These materials are not required for this course, but are manuals that Cheri uses during many of her on-site training sessions, and can provide invaluable guidance when you need it most.

Take a look at our online store for these and other materials that you may find helpful.
