Looking for Information about Trauma Informed Approaches to ALICE Training

Karen Crawford Simms ·
Greetings, My community is just starting Active Shooting drills using the ALICE model. A number of the teachers, parents and students have expressed concerns that these drills (because they are designed to simulate a real active threat) could be traumatizing and/or re-traumatizing for those in the schools. I'm wondering if anyone has any information (sample policies, procedures or practices) that can make an active shooting drill more trauma informed.

It's unfortunate that this is even an issue. I'm not that familiar with working with children but would it be possible to adapt the same trauma-informed practices for teaching to active shooter drills? You might be the first to consider addressing trauma in this scenario. Here's to hoping you connect with someone who can give you some feedback. Best of luck.

Thanks for the feedback. I was actually hoping to find a school district who had discussed this or had outlined a process to share with our school board and superintendent Keeping my fingers crossed.
