Seminar Short DescNot set
Seminar Full DescWithin and across school districts, practices vary widely in managing students at risk for suicide. At one end of the spectrum, some schools require that police officers assess any student threatening suicide and subsequently escort the child to a regional hospital if they are deemed to be a lethal threat to themselves. At the other end of the spectrum, school psychologists complete a risk assessment, provide brief intervention, and develop a safety plan for a child at-risk for suicide. Such variability within and across school districts, and even among school-based mental health care practitioners, leaves them susceptible to role confusion and lacking confidence in how to properly address a student who is suicidal. This full day professional development workshop is designed to improve skills, processes, and protocol for helping students at risk for suicide through:

1. Equipping educators with tools, knowledge, and skills to assist students having thoughts of suicide or engaging in suicidal behavior
2. Understanding the necessity of pre-planning and standardized procedures for safety planning
3. Identifying the importance of collaboration and shared decision making between school mental health professionals, administrators, community providers, and the student and his or her family in managing students at risk for suicide
4. Viewing an example of documenting risk of suicide and safety planning
5. Being prepared to develop and implement standardized procedures in their schools/district that reflect best practice for helping students at risk
