Even though death rates of children and teens have decreased substantially during the last several years, the youth suicide rate in the United States has remained alarmingly high. Because teachers, principals and other school staff have ongoing contact with adolescents, it is essential that they be knowledgeable and experienced in recognizing and dealing with students at risk for suicide.   

Filled with timely research about adolescent suicide and insightful analysis, Child and Adolescent Suicidal Behavior: School-Based Prevention, Assessment, and Intervention is a must-read for any school psychologist, counselor, teacher, and may just help them save a life.

Informative and easy-to-read chapters include:

  • Suicidal Behavior in Children and Adolescents:  An Introduction and Overview
  • Youth Suicidal Behavior and the Schools
  • A Public Health Approach to Youth Suicide Prevention
  • Universal School-Based Suicide Prevention Programs for All Students
  • Identifying At-Risk and High-Risk Students and Linking Assessment to Intervention
  • Selected and Tertiary Interventions for At-Risk and High-Risk Students
  • School-Based Suicide Postvention

Authors David Miller, PhD  and Alan Berman, PhD draw on their extensive clinical experience to offer valuable information and essential recommendations in the areas of:

  • Developing school-wide suicide prevention programs
  • Conducting risk-assessments
  • Situation-appropriate interventions
  • Legal and ethical issues

This important resource, part of the Practical Intervention in the Schools series, includes reproducible handouts with sample risk assessment questions for students, teachers, and parents.  Strategies for helping  school community cope after a suicide are also included.

If school staff is going to respond proactively and efficiently to adolescent suicidal behavior, they need to become knowledgeable in these areas.   How school practitioners respond to suicidal teens can literally mean the difference between life and death.
