Course Description:
The school years are fraught with turmoil and strife for kids. In addition to the usual unrest, many of your students will be affected by emotional and/or mental health issues. They may present with dropping grades, decreased class participation and negative acting-out behavior. For some students, these issues escalate into more severe and complex behaviors that cause harm to both themselves and others. These students often become emotionally withdrawn, exhibit extreme mood swings, become severely depressed and may even resort to self-harm and/or suicide. These issues pose a serious challenge to you and your school.

As an educator, you are in the unique position to identify, help and support these struggling students. This seminar will examine the best strategies for identification, prevention and postvention among students with depression, self-harm and suicidal ideation. Emphasis will be placed on understanding how to detect and respond to at-risk students at the individual level, classroom level and school-wide level. You will learn strategies, techniques and interventions to provide the appropriate support and effectively help students cope. Whether you are a classroom teacher, school counselor/psychologist/social workers, administrator or support staff, you will leave this seminar armed with tools you need to connect with and help students who most need your help.

Objectives:
• Integrate techniques to build students’ social/emotional skills, thus increasing the likelihood to establish positive relationships.
• Recommend effective methods to detect the hidden signs of depression, self-harm & suicide and put to practical use in the schools.
• Implement techniques that promote resiliency among all students thus improving their social and academic success.
• Explore a collaborative approach to integrate SEL into the curriculum.
• Ascertain the underlying reasons for self-harm & suicide in order to improve your connection with the student.
• Provide guidelines for notifying and engaging parents.
• Specify a suicide intervention team and delineate the role of each member.
• Establish best practices for postvention plans in the aftermath of a suicide.
