A Practical Guide for University Crisis Response

A Practical Guide for University Crisis Response provides a structure and process for effectively managing the wide spectrum of university-based crises - from the seemingly mundane to the most severe. It is an invaluable resource in preparation for, and during, actual crisis situations and serves as a meaningful standard for our nation’s colleges and universities. This guide recognizes that crisis response cannot be delegated solely to administrators and members of the Crisis Response Team. Effective crisis management is the responsibility of all university personnel.

This publication introduces and incorporates a practical and effective strategy for addressing the emotional needs of people during traumatic events, Acute Traumatic Stress Management (ATSM). ATSM does not require caregivers to be mental health practitioners. Rather, ATSM can empower all university personnel by providing a "road map" to keep people functioning and mitigate long-term emotional suffering.
