    Workshop Description:
    The purpose of this full-day workshop is to provide information on and training in current best practices in school-based suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention. The first portion of the workshop will focus on universal school-based suicide prevention programs for all students in a given population (e.g., all students in a particular grade level; all students in a school). Information will be provided on a variety of topics, including current statistics and demographic data on youth suicide; risk factors, protective factors, and warning signs; prominent myths that impede effective prevention efforts; ethical and legal issues in school-based suicide prevention; and the advantages and challenges of school-wide screening procedures.

    The second portion of the workshop will focus on school-based assessment and intervention for at-risk and high-risk students. Recent advances in understanding suicide will also be reviewed, including recent developments in “ideation-to-action” models of suicidal behavior and their implications for suicide risk assessment and prevention in schools. Additionally, current controversies in youth suicide prevention and intervention, including effects of medication on suicidal behavior, will be discussed.  

    The third portion of the workshop will focus on postvention procedures, which refer to a series of preplanned activities that are put in place by schools in those rare but tragic situations in which a student dies by suicide. The primary goals of postvention procedures are to assist individuals with immediate coping skills and to prevent any additional suicides, and practical information will be provided to help those attending this workshop meet both goals. Current recommended practices in school-based postvention will be provided, including a presentation on which postvention activities to implement and which to avoid.
