As crises continue to occur in schools across the country, post-crisis interventions are an important practice in addressing the psychological and physical well-being of students, faculty, and staff. In this video, Rebeccah Sokol, PhD, describes promising research into the effectiveness of post-crisis interventions, including key findings and recommendations from the systematic review conducted by the National Center for School Safety team.

At the time of recording, Dr. Sokol is a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Department of Health Behavior and Health Education at the University of Michigan School of Public Health. She was working alongside a team of researchers to identify research gaps in the field of school health and safety. She is now an Assistant Professor at the Wayne State University School of Social Work.
