Suicide, Self Injury and School Violence Prevention
Childhood and adolescence are times of innocence and light, but for some it is one of darkness. Although no one is ever fully prepared to address the subject of suicide, it is through this course that educational professionals will be better equipped to deal with this dark side. Unfortunately, suicide is an action that affects hundreds of thousands of U.S. students every year, and it is the third leading cause of death among teens and young adults. In the past two decades alone, this rate has doubled. It is a public health problem that mostly affects youth from the ages of ten to twenty-four, however, because it is such a growing epidemic, it is one that needs to be addressed at a far younger age. Because self-injury and school violence are often related, these topics are addressed as well. With all of this information, educational professionals can put in place preventative and response policies and procedures for the safety and protection of students and faculty.

All of this information will help celebrate diversity with students, as well as improve communication regarding any potential religious issues stemming from them with students, their families, and colleagues; thereby enriching everyone’s lives.
