Crisis Management


Posted on April 4, 2013. Filed under: Crisis Management |




Last semester our department conducted exit interviews for our graduating child study majors. Exit interviews are routinely conducted each semester and yield a wealth of information about our program and where we can improve and grow. One unanticipated comment came from several students who indicated a need for more information about crisis management. It is important to note that these students were student teaching during the aftermath of Super Storm Sandy, in addition to watching the horrific Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Their point was well taken and I began to investigate resources to include in my student teaching seminar. 

I came across a website created by several dedicated special education teachers from San Antonio, Texas. They have the most comprehensive webpage on crisis management from basic fire drill and lock down to disaster preparedness. While several of the links are no longer working, many of the links contain great information especially those from the Red Cross. Many of the resources are child friendly and great to share. 

Take some time and check out the Crisis Management page . I think you will be glad you did. 

If you know of any additional resources on crisis management please let me know so I can share these with my students.
