Crisis and Intervention Committee

Mission Statement:

To facilitate student and staff psychological well being, in order to enable schools to resume normal activities after a crisis, which would maximize educational performance.

The OSPA Crisis Committee would like to assist school psychologists in their response to students and families in crisis situations by:

  1. Gathering information about crisis prevention, intervention, and postvention and making this information available to OSPA members.
  2. Providing a supportive network of professionals to increase knowledge and skills in crisis situations.
  3. Increasing collaborative involvement in regional / state teams in preparation for possible response to a region / state crisis..

Training Presentations and Resources:
The following are presentations that can be used for trainings within individual departments, buildings, or districts. The OSPA Crisis Committee has made these materials available free of charge to the public in order to promote the ability of children and youth to cope with traumatic or unsetting events. Materials may be reproduced or adapted without specific permission from the OSPA Crisis Committee. However, the integrity of the content must be maintained and the OSPA Crisis Committee must be given proper credit.
