Confronting Suicide Among the Gifted: Addressing the Why and Exploring Campus Intervention

Friday, November 10
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Location: 209 A

What can schools, and especially teachers, do to effectively address suicide among gifted students? What are the “first, do no harm” guidelines we should follow? This session confronts the complicated issues of student suicide, empowering educators with the information they need to appropriately discuss the issue with gifted students at different ages. Educators gain the skills they need to address the issue if it happens on their campus, and they explore the intersection of suicide with giftedness. Cooperatively developed by an educator/administrator and a therapist specializing in gifted, this is a technique-based, practical session.
