Lessons Learned from Major Events

Overview: This workshop presents a wide array of unexpected lessons from 9/11, the tsunami in Japan, Columbine, suicide clusters and other major events.  This workshop prepares administrators and team members to train their building staff to handle major crisis without outside assistance. Often with major events, emergency services will be directed to places other than the schools (hospitals, city government, agencies upon which the whole community is depending) so schools need to be able to manage on their own through the entire unfolding and beginning recovery of the event.

Intended audience: Administrators, counselors, school psychologists and social workers, nurses, teachers, clerical people, bi-lingual aides, Rapid Response and Flight Team Members and others.

Content: Specific lessons learned and examples from the field to illustrate each one.
