Listen to the full episode below:

One of the many reasons we become school counselors is to be able to provide support to students when they’re experiencing a crisis. We are often given the infamous walkie talkie in order to be prepared for those exact situations. It’s never long, however, until that crisis intervention begins interfering with the other duties we perform throughout our day.

Can you relate? As you’re about to pick up a student for an individual session you end up canceling due to an emergency. I’m here to tell you there can be an equal balance between supporting students in crisis and fulfilling the additional roles needed to serve the school community.

Some topics covered in this episode are:

  • Reasons to create a Crisis Response Team

  • Who to incorporate into the Crisis Response Team

  • Benefits of delegating crisis intervention support

  • How to establish a response team protocol
