Title: Creating Student Crisis/Safety Plans

Creating Student Crisis/Safety Plans
Elements of Crisis/Safety Planning
  • Identify and engage the people who know the
    crisis best
  • Define and specify the behavior
  • Define what happens as the crisis situation
  • What happens during the crisis behavior(Eruption)?
  • What happens after the behavior (De-Escalation)?
  • Develop the written crisis/safety plan

Identify and Engage People who Know Crisis
Situation Best in Creating Plan
  • Who is generally present during the behaviors or
    crisis situation?
  • Who knows the youth and family best?
  • Are there people who are knowledgeable/ trained
    in behavior management?

Define and Specify the Behavior or Crisis
  • In a few simple sentences, specifically describe
    the behavior of concern.
  • Be specific enough that everyone on the team will
    recognize it when it occurs.
  • Describe how often, how long and/or level of

What Happens Before the Behavior or Crisis
  • When/ where does the behavior occur?
  • What are the things that happen that signal the
    crisis behavior is beginning?
  • What are the setting events (triggers)?
  • Physiological (hunger, sickness)
  • Environmental (noise, demands, discomfort)
  • Social (disappointment, conflict, embarrassment)
  • Look for exceptions when the challenging behavior
    DOES NOT occur. This will help with
    de-escalation strategies.
  • Whats different about the times the behavior
    does not occur?
  • What triggers the behavior to NOT occur?

Escalation Strategies
  • Actions that prevent the crisis behavior (using
    what you know about triggers)
  • Actions that divert/distract the student
    (re-directing student toward the situations in
    which the problem behavior does not occur

What Happens During the Crisis or Behavior?
  • What happens specifically?
  • Is there a chain of events in the crisis or
  • Who does what during the behavior or crisis?
  • How do people respond?
  • How well do the things people try work?

Eruption Strategies
  • Are there strategies for breaking the chain of
    behaviors you have identified?
  • What strategies need to be in place for safety,
    i.e. clearing the room, go to safety area for
    student, what staff need to be called?
  • Develop protocol for staff involved so that they
    know exactly what to do.

What Happens After the Behavior?
  • What are the signs that the person is beginning
    to de-escalate? Specify the behaviors.
  • What responses increase the rate of
  • Think about problem maintaining consequences
    Does the behavior result in the person getting
    something? Does the behavior result in the
    person avoiding doing something?
  • Determine ways to encourage de-escalation without
    reinforcing the problem behavior.
