More about Cheri Lovre

Cheri Lovre started as a Behavioral Specialist in the 1980s writing IEPs and working with behaviorally challenged students in schools. She noticed that many of the students on her caseload were struggling with grief or trauma. As a result, by the mid-80s she was training school crisis response teams (Flight Teams). She wrote the Crisis Resource Manual in 1985.  Armed with her third book, the Catastrophic Events Resource Manual in the 90s, she began responding to school shootings. Her first response was Thurston High School, Springfield. Just one year later she responded to Columbine. Cheri spent 2 years in  NYC following 9/11 and her work continues still. With every on-site response, she’s gained more and more insight on the root of all of this violence. Read more about her experience here.
