    The SRF Suicide Prevention Research and Training Project is pleased to announce a clinical training opportunity in youth suicide prevention for school professionals. This is intended specifically for clinical professionals in schools including school counselors, mental health, health and substance use providers that serve youth at risk for suicide in the school settings. This training is not meant for community clinical providers.

    School counselors and resource staff are often in the challenging position of making initial assessments of students potentially at-risk for suicide. How to do an effective evaluation within the limitations of school schedules, etc. can be challenging. This workshop will provide both a template that outlines relevant assessment criteria as well as a model for developmentally relevant questioning. It will also address some of the challenges in helping students who have suicide related absences ‘return to learn’. Finally, it will review techniques for assisting students who have experienced sudden losses ‘grow on after loss’, with dynamic strategies that are appropriate to the culture of the school.

    Topics will include:

    • Provide a behavioral definition of suicide
    • Identify 5 characteristics of suicide
    • Identify at least 3 relevant ‘return to learn’ objectives – including medication management
    • Describe the ‘tell me more’ assessment model

    Registration is limited – so please register early. If you expressed interest in this training at an earlier event or via email that does not guarantee a spot – you must register online.

    This event is being subsidized by the SRF Project, The School of Social Work.

    This program will provide 6 clinical social work continuing education units. Licensed professional counseling accreditation recognizes this professional body and will accept these credit hours.

    Social Work CEUs are provided by the Monmouth University School of Social Work Professional Education Program (PEP) and are recognized by the New Jersey State Board of Social Work Examiners.

    If you have any questions regarding the program please contact, Michelle Scott, Ph.D., at mscott@monmouth.edu.

    We would like to thank you in advance for taking the time to be part of this important training. Your work with youth and young people is so appreciated and valued.
