Overview

The first book of its kind to address suicide, self-injury, and violence in school settings

The frequency of suicide, students' self-injury, and violence in school settings requires preventative and response policies and procedures for the safety and protection of faculty and students. Suicide, Self-Injury, and Violence in the Schools: Assessment, Prevention, and Intervention Strategies is the first book to provide first responders—specifically, school counselors, psychologists, social workers, teachers, and administrators—with information on assessing risk. In addition, guidelines are included on how to respond to these crises in a practical and proactive manner that minimizes risk and/or impact on the school community.

The authors, nationally renowned experts on suicide, self-injury, and violence among children and adolescents, present:

Critical information on suicide and suicidal behaviors specific to children and adolescents

Pertinent issues related to nonsuicidal self-injury behaviors

Guidance on conducting effective face-to-face clinical interviews with violent and potentially violent students and their families

Important prevention and screening topics for middle and high school counselors

Discussion on psychological first aid in response to school violence survivors and their parents

Filled with mini-case vignettes, as well as checklists for school personnel to use, this timely reference supports school professionals in devising the very best prevention, intervention, and post?crisis strategies. It is a much-needed resource for establishing a collaborative, nonsuicidal, nonviolent environment both within and outside the school setting.
