                            The Evolution of Crisis Response in Schools
 
 
Cheri Lovre, MS, Director of CMI, has over 30 years of experience in the field of prevention, crisis response, grief and trauma with specialization in working with youth. Her greatest strength in responding in the moment to catastrophic events that are unfolding (when districts call and are still in lock-down) is helping them predict many dynamics and prepare for the hundreds of soon-to-surface challenges that feel like one more crisis. Just knowing ahead of time allows administrators to prepare and mitigate the tsunami of needs that will arise. Her work spans consulting to administrators, training counselors/school psychologists in acute trauma response, crafting messages for media, dealing with how students will re-enter the building following clean-up, and long-term recovery.
 
Because of her range of experience, she has developed a philosophy and a specific approach toward the unique requirements of survivors of both crisis and trauma. Her primary focus has been working in prevention, mitigation, response and follow-up with schools in the aftermath of student and staff deaths, suicides, homicides, natural disasters, traumatic events, shootings, arrests of staff for internet child pornography, teacher-student sexual misconduct and a wide range of other tragedies that often overwhelm a district’s usual abilities to cope.
 
During the 1980′s, while employed by Marion Education Services District in Salem, OR, she worked extensively on creating training and materials for crisis response teams, which has become one of her specialties. Because of the lessons learned from responding to such a variety of incidents, she has authored 9 books and provided chapters for several trauma books, anthologies, and encyclopedias. She is creating online courses in order to reach a greater audience.
