Crisis Relief is a guide for principals, teachers, and school employees who do not know what they will do if their school should one day experience the unthinkable. If each time you hear of another mass shooting, or stabbings, suicide or natural disaster (fire, flood, earthquake), you wonder what you would do if there was a crisis in your school, then this book is for you. The authors, White and Peat, are educational psychologists with a long history of international experience in crisis intervention planning and training. They understand the needs of students, parents, educators, schools, administration, the media and communities.
Peter White and David Peat first met in the 1990s while they were colleague psychologists in the Yukon territory, Canada. They periodically kept in touch and finally could work together again in Singapore and the Maldives during 2005. Since then, they continue to collaborate in various ways despite living in different parts of the world.
