Free Micro Course: An Exploration into Student Suicide and Self Harm
Student suicide is an ever growing phenomenon that is more and more concerning to school officials, families, and communities. As we try to prevent these unnecessary tragedies from occurring, we attempt to learn more about prevention. Self-harm is a red flag that sometimes goes unnoticed, along with other warning signs that are often misinterpreted as typical teen behaviors.
In this self-paced exploration, you will build a foundation of understanding on Student Suicide and Self Harm. Through the inquiry model, you will create guiding questions, explore resources, document your learning, and formulate next steps. Overall, prepare to spend two to three hours completing this exploration. The printable resources are a great place to record and create a product of your learning and can also be used with your students as you lead them through inquiry projects.
Upon completion of this micro-course, you will receive a certificate from Advancement Courses notating your 3 PD hours earned.
Applicability of professional development hours varies from state to state. Please follow your district or governing body’s approval process to verify acceptance.
