Overview

When something traumatic such as a suicide occurs, the shock can reverberate through the family, community, or school environment, affecting the thoughts and feelings all concerned for extended periods of time. Teens are often hit especially hard. Therapy, open communication, community support, and personal coping skills are necessary for "recovery" from the negative effects of the trauma. Join Tamara Hill, a licensed therapist and certified trauma professional, as she discusses suicidal thoughts in teens, national challenges and statistics, warning signs and problematic behaviors, and things to consider in school environments. She will also discuss possible ways the system has "failed" our youth and suggest possible ways to address those failures.

Excellent presentation, my only concern/criticism is related to the presenter mentioning that schools should punish students for "spreading rumors"...I think it is important for schools to teach students the difference between reporting and gossiping. I would hate a school not to take someone seriously just because they considered what they heard as a "rumor."
