Suicide is the second leading cause of death among youth. Nearly 20% of all high school students report having at least one serious thought of suicide in the past year. Among sexual and gender minority students, between 35% and 50% report thinking about suicide in the past year. Schools offer a unique opportunity to identify and address youth suicide risk, provide prevention programming, intervene with suicidal students, and address the grief and loss and elevated suicide risk that can occur after a student dies by suicide. This workshop will provide an overview of the fundamentals of suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention in schools.

This course was recorded from a live webinar presented by Dr. Jonathan Singer on August 13, 2021

  • Distinguish between preferred and problematic suicide-related concepts
  • List empirically-based suicide prevention programs
  • Identify the 7 components of a safety plan
  • Explain how planning and cultural humility can be protective following a student's suicide death

Child education literature tells us that systemic racism produces inequitable opportunities for the educational success of black and indigenous students of color. For example, today, due to systematically embedded policies and practices, black and indigenous students of color are more educationally segregated in under-resourced schools than they were two decades ago. As a result, and as has historically been the case, the opportunities for achieving educational success are compromised along racial lines. In addition, the role of implicit bias in interpersonal interactions influences the setting of educational expectations and how students and families are engaged, as well as many other educational decisions. From structural, intrapersonal and interpersonal perspectives, this training will provide an overview of the connections between race-related bias and how educational services are provided, as well as some initial steps needed for influencing more equitable outcomes.

This course was recorded from a live webinar presented by Dr. Sonja Sutherland on August 13, 2021

  • Explain implicit bias and how it is developed.

  • Describe how implicit bias influences educational decision-making.

  • List initial steps needed for influencing more equitable outcomes for black and indigenous students of color.
