Abstract and Keywords
The following chapter provides detailed information on interventions for school crises and violence. The interventions are placed in the context of the three-tier model, and promoting wellness in the schools. Further, the interventions are conceptualized along the primary, secondary, and tertiary continuum. Intervention specifics are provided for individual aggressive students, gang violence, and bullying. The emerging phenomenon of cyber-bullying, and how to intervene, is also detailed in the section on bullying. Trauma is also discussed, with trauma-focused cognitive behavior therapy (TF-CBT) featured as the most efficacious intervention. Empirical support for each intervention is presented, along with a rationale for the importance for primary prevention whenever possible.
