School-Based Multisystemic Interventions for Mass Trauma presents the theoretical foundations of school-based crisis intervention, which is a systemic approach to helping the school system in an emergency.
The book offers a theory- and research-based framework to address the numerous and varied needs of student, parents, educational staff, school administration, and the mental health professionals themselves. The sections include the following: A systematic review of the theory and findings relevant to mass disasters, their impact on children, and postdisaster stress processing and positive coping; A conceptual basis for schoolwide preventive interventions; and, A comprehensive multisystemic intervention plan involving school children, school personnel, and community agencies. School-Based Multisystemic Interventions for Mass Trauma is a valuable resource for school psychologists, school mental health workers, clinical child psychologists, school counsellors, as well as for educators and school administrators.
