Two separate web questionnaires, containing a total of 41 main items were made available. These were organized into seven clusters, covering the following areas; demographic information, crisis management training, experience of different types of crisis situations, crisis management plan, crisis response team, crisis interventions and schools’ management of crisis situations. Statistical analysis was used to interpret the data. The results showed that the majority of the respondents were interested in participating in crisis management and held a positive view of their capability in relation to other school professionals. Furthermore, variables such as age and work experience turned out to be of significance, accounting for differences between groups of respondents. (Less)
