In a time where schools are becoming increasingly vigilant in “School Safety plans” (i.e., steps taken for a fire, bomb threat or tornado), schools must be equally prepared to respond the first day back after knowledge of a traumatic event (i.e., following an accidental death of a student, a death of a teacher due to a prolonged illness or following a student suicide).

The Traumatic Event Crisis Intervention Plan (TECIP ™), a program developed by the founders of COPES Consulting, has taught schools and districts how to develop sound aftermath crisis response plans, along with providing practical strategies and support materials in helping those impacted by the incident. TECIP is a field tested model that is adaptable regardless of the size of the school or school district. 

This course will provide participants with knowledge, protocols and materials designed to facilitate

  • competent, thorough and proactive pre-incident (traumatic event) preparation,
  • subsequent day (after students and staff have returned to school) deployment of crisis response team members and management of the building response, and
  • familiarity with a variety of intervention strategies and documents specifically designed to strengthen building response following a traumatic event.

Day 1: The focus of day one highlights foundational information of school crisis, the direct instruction & clarification of the TECIP framework (main components and demonstrations of the interventions embedded in the TECIP framework.

Day 2: Day two provides the opportunity for participants to practice and gain comfort with the TECIP framework; and begin the process of  personalizing the TECIP plan to meet their building (or district) needs.
