At-Risk Youth in Crisis: A Handbook for Collaboration between Schools and Social Services. Volume 2: Suicide.
Linn-Benton Education Services District, Albany, OR.; ERIC Clearinghouse on Educational Management, Eugene, OR.
A youth suicide became the impetus for an Oregon education service district's leadership in spearheading a collaborative effort with local schools and community agencies to develop a handbook detailing acceptable, proven guidelines for appropriate interventions. This volume of the handbook series is designed to provide educators with appropriate responses to students at risk for suicide. Topics include: immediate crisis intervention processes, long-term prevention considerations, and community resources available to assist in the prevention of youth suicide. Also discussed are suicide prevention training, policy and procedure development, and legal requirements. Examples of district suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention policies and guidelines are provided along with forms that schools and districts have developed for these purposes.
