Book Description

The second edition of ""What Will We Do? Preparing A School Community to Cope With Crises"" is a guidebook for educators and parents who wish to understand the importance of both pre- and post-intervention programs in our schools to assist all parties in coping with crises that arise. The book examines the scope and effects (including the potential benefits and possible risks) of programs that target such issues as loss, illness, death, grief, war, and violence. It presents specific steps that can be taken to help prepare a school community to cope with possible future crises. Today's news has shown us with dramatic effect that a crisis can occur at any time, often without warning. Educators and parents must work together if they wish to help young people, and each other, when such a crisis occurs. What Will We Do? is a major step in that direction.
