Crisis Prevention and Preparedness: Comprehensive School Safety Planning
Friday, March 10, 2017
8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
International House at UC Berkeley
Space is extremely limited! Offering CEUs from NASP.
This 1-day workshop provides school-based mental health professionals, administrators, security professionals, and other educators the knowledge and resources to help them establish and sustain comprehensive school safety and crisis prevention and preparedness efforts.
With updated research and strategies, this workshop makes a clear connection between ongoing school safety and crisis preparedness. It also will emphasize the unique needs and functions of school teams and the steps involved in developing these teams, including a model that integrates school personnel and community provider roles. The workshop also explores how to prepare for school crises by developing, exercising, and evaluating safety and crisis plans.
Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and Certificates of Attendance - We will offer 6.5 hours of CEUs from the National Association of School Psychology to those who attend the entire workshop. You must sign in and out to receive a CEU certificate. Please note that no partial credits will be given.
Meagan O’Malley, PhD, Assistant Professor of School Psychology at California State University, Sacramento, is a school psychologist specializing in mental health promotion and violence prevention among children, youth, and young adults. In addition to her work at CSUS, Dr. O’Malley serves as a technical assistance specialist for SAMHSA’s Now Is The Time (NITT) Technical Assistance Center. In this role, Dr. O’Malley supports Project AWARE-funded State Education Agencies as they work to improve mental health awareness, increase cross-agency collaboration, and improve access to mental health supports for school-aged youth. Dr. O’Malley formerly served as the Field Director for two multi-site, multi-year technical assistance projects: the Safe and Supportive Schools Initiative for the California Department of Education, and the Quality Improvement and Evaluation Project for the Child, Youth, and School Services division of the U.S. Army. Dr. O’Malley’s scholarship on psychological wellbeing and school climate perceptions, particularly as they vary across youth with high-risk life experiences, such as youth in foster homes, and across sociocultural groups, has been published in several peer-reviewed outlets.
