Bullying is a widespread problem that negatively impacts students' well-being and achievement. The document outlines a comprehensive, school-wide approach to addressing bullying consisting of three parts: 1. Defining and tracking bullying to establish clear policies. 2. Implementing prevention strategies like supervision, social-emotional learning, and bystander empowerment. 3. Establishing protocols for responding to incidents through investigation, consequences, parent involvement, and reflection. The approach aims to change school culture and norms to reduce bullying through community engagement and evidence-based practices.

This document summarizes a presentation given by Dr. Scott Poland and Michele Gay on school safety. They discuss insights from the Sandy Hook shooting and how to improve crisis preparation, response, and recovery efforts. Some of the key points discussed include practicing off-site evacuations, having reunification plans, recognizing warning signs in students, limiting access to school buildings, and increasing mental health support services at schools. The goal is to educate about preventing violence and mitigating harm through preparation and teamwork.

Autism and Life Transitions: Hard Lessons Learned & Taught as a Person-Center...

In December of 2015, I presented this webinar to members of the National Association for Dual Diagnoses (thenadd.org). I've been conducting Person-Centered Plans for 4 years, and over that time I've seen a number of disturbing trends around the lack of understanding and planning for preparedness in transitioning students; in particular, in the areas of independent skill building specific to the anticipated environment, and personal safety skills. I feel it's important to talk about what I've observed and how my team of co-facilitators and I have identified and tackled these issues within the PCP process. I hope that the "lessons learned" will assist people in planning for IEP/ISP goals that can help maximize success. I offer it free to anyone who would like to attend.

This document provides information and guidance for recognizing and responding to students who may be at risk of suicide. It outlines key warning signs and risk factors, as well as steps staff should take to ensure the student's safety and notify parents and mental health professionals. These steps include supervising the student, conducting a risk assessment if trained to do so, informing administrators, and documenting all actions. The document emphasizes that asking a suicidal student if they are thinking of suicide does not increase risk and stresses the importance of not keeping a student's suicidal thoughts confidential.

PREVENTION: Understanding Myths
• MYTH: All adolescents think of suicide.
• FACT: Only about 12-15% of the student population (depending on location) seriously
think about it.
• MYTH: If I ask someone about suicide, I’ll put the thought in their
head.
• FACT: There is a large body of research disputing this myth (Madeline Gould et al)
• MYTH: If someone wants to die by suicide there is nothing I can do
about it.
• FACT: Suicide is preventable and most who survived a suicide attempt do not try again.
• MYTH: Suicide is selfish.
• FACT: People who are suicidal often feel they are a burden to others
10
PREVENTION: Understanding Causes
• PRIOR DEATH: The number one risk factor for death by suicide is
a prior one in your community or a neighboring one.
• MENTAL HEALTH/DEPRESSION: Withdrawal, sleep habits,
anxiety.

This document discusses the psychology of bullying in Ireland. It provides statistics on bullying in Irish schools, with over 200,000 children estimated to be at risk. Common forms of bullying are described as physical, verbal, social, and cyber. The document examines reasons why children bully, noting bullies often have low self-esteem or act out due to abuse. Victims are often socially isolated with long-term psychological impacts. Ireland launched an Action Plan in 2013 to address bullying through teacher training, anti-bullying programs and policy revisions.

Students and parents have different concerns about the transition to college, with students focused on social aspects like making friends and partying, while parents worry about academic success and career preparation. The college transition presents challenges like managing independence, priorities, and values while fitting into a new social environment that includes substance abuse. Counseling services are available to help with issues like homesickness, mental health concerns, and substance abuse, though services are limited and focused on short-term skill-building. Alcohol and drug use are major issues on campus that can negatively impact academics and safety.

- Bullying occurs when a group of children regularly harass, intimidate, hit, or exclude another child who is weaker or has lower social status. 60% of bullies will have a criminal record by age 24 if not prevented from bullying as children. - Bullying takes many forms, including physical and emotional bullying. Boys tend to use physical violence while girls are more likely to bully in groups using social exclusion. - Bullying starts in elementary school and is most common in middle school, ending in high school. It often occurs in unsupervised areas like playgrounds and bathrooms. Around 90% of kids report being bullied by 8th grade.

The document discusses bullying, violence, and strategies for prevention. It defines bullying as a relationship problem involving an imbalance of power, deliberate and repeated harmful actions. Violence is defined as the actual or threatened use of power to harm others physically, psychologically or socially. The document outlines types of bullying such as physical, verbal, relational and cyberbullying. It also discusses the consequences of bullying and provides a SMART approach for victims and bystanders to address bullying situations safely and effectively. Finally, it introduces the Safe and Caring Schools program which takes a comprehensive, whole-school approach to building respect, self-esteem and preventing bullying through curriculum, teaching, and community engagement.

The document summarizes the results of a survey on school violence conducted at West High School. Most students reported observing bullying/harassment incidents. Many students had been personally threatened or had property damaged by other students. While some violence occurs, most students feel it is not major and the administration is aware and trying to address it. Statistics provided show school violence and crimes against students are more common than reported.

“Our school is comprised largely of perfectionist students who are terrified
by the idea of failure. The race for a higher Grade Point Average (GPA)
dominates in our community. Our worth and value in the eyes of our
friends, family, and, worst of all, ourselves, is dictated by this number. Being
ranked by GPA only worsens the crisis through constant comparison to each
other. Mistakes, whether during lectures or on tests, become viewed by
students, and even many teachers, as signs of weakness and stupidity.”

From a student …
The student who took his own life had a full schedule of
Advanced Placement classes—as a high school freshman.
Why? Because he knew the reality of his high school's
antiquated ranking and weighting system. The school only
gives special weight (added points onto the GPA thus
improving the class rank) if a student takes APs.

“Our teachers and District have simply created and maintained a system that our
community/country has demanded from us over the past 20 years since college
admissions mania went into hyper drive, since vocational training programs were
dismantled, and since earning “A’s” in AP classes became the norm.
Our teachers feel the pressure, administration and counseling feel the pressure, and
now parents/students are really feeling the pressures. When we grew up nobody
asked us what our GPA was, and it was “cool” to work on the roof of a house.
This competitive culture has significantly impacted our young adults. We endlessly
discuss test scores, National Merit Scholarships, reading scores, AP scholars,
comparisons to other school Districts and this is when we start losing our
collective souls--and our children.”

This document summarizes key issues faced by GLBTQ youth and the responsibilities of school psychologists to advocate for them. It finds that GLBTQ youth experience high rates of victimization but social support can help. While diversity training programs have improved, many school psychologists do not feel prepared to advocate for GLBTQ students due to a lack of training and potential personal biases. It argues that school psychologists must examine their own beliefs and be willing to separate personal views from professional responsibilities to effectively promote acceptance for all students.

This document provides an overview of a whole campus approach to suicide prevention and intervention at the University of Cumbria. It discusses establishing a Behavioral Intervention Team to identify at-risk students and refer them to support services. Risk factors for suicide are outlined, as well as approaches like screening, risk assessment, and managing safety. The importance of training staff, reducing stigma, and collaborating across campus and with community partners is emphasized. Ongoing education and outreach are recommended rather than one-time events.

This document discusses effective strategies for communicating health information to adolescents. It notes that while parents and adults still need information, directly engaging teens in conversations is developmentally appropriate. Motivational interviewing techniques that explore risks and benefits in a non-confrontational way can help teens reflect on issues. Interactive tools using stories, data, and peer perspectives are suggested. Examples provided include online simulations to train educators and classroom programs using role plays and stories.

1. Many students in Waco ISD schools are considered economically disadvantaged, with high poverty rates. Approximately 90% of students in Waco ISD qualify for free or reduced lunch. 2. Reading clubs that meet with small groups of students for 30 minutes once a week can help improve student reading levels. Research shows that mentoring relationships with adults can benefit at-risk youth by improving behaviors, self-esteem, and educational outcomes like graduation rates. 3. If reading clubs helped just 100 students in Waco ISD choose not to drop out each year, it could save the city of Waco $30 million over those students' lifetimes in increased tax revenues and reduced social costs.

To close on a positive note: Attending to Social
Emotional Health makes a big difference
Students who are mentally healthy and social-emotionally sound are:
1. More likely to succeed academically
2. Have the self-confidence, resilience, grit, and coping skills to
persist in the face of difficult challenges
3. More friendly and skilled in managing positive relationships
4. More engaged in and be connected to school
5. More likely to make wise decisions and thus less likely to have
discipline problems

Research shows the positive impact of
social emotional interventions on learning
29
The ability to recognize and manage emotions and establish and maintain
positive relationships impacts both readiness to learn and the ability to
benefit from learning opportunities. In 2011, a team of researchers conducted a
comprehensive meta analysis of school based universal social emotional
interventions which included 213 schools and 270,034 students ranging from
kindergarten through high school.
On average, the researchers found that students receiving social emotional
interventions improved significantly compared to those not receiving an
intervention. Social emotional skills, social behaviors, and academic performance
increased, attitudes towards self and others were more positive, conduct problems
were reduced, and emotional distress lessened.

Bullying among the gifted

This document discusses detecting and deterring bullying among gifted students. It begins by defining giftedness according to federal standards as students who demonstrate high achievement in intellectual, creative or leadership capacities. It then notes that gifted students can experience bullying due to their talents or disabilities. Common myths about gifted students are debunked, such as that they can handle bullying alone or that their talents guarantee success. The document outlines signs that a gifted student is being bullied and provides recommendations for addressing bullying, such as creating a safe environment, designating trusted adults, and involving parents and students through anti-bullying programs.

COMMUNITY CONVERSATION Deer. Valley USD

  • 1. Community Conversation Deer Valley Unified School District January 28, 2019 From Distress to Success: Supporting Student Mental Health and Well-Being
  • 2. You and your community have our undivided, unconditional love and support Our goals tonight: •Decrease suicide and attempts by increasing knowledge and understanding •Encourage help-seeking •Reduce stigma of mental illness •Engage parents, students, and staff as partners in prevention •Answer any and all of your questions 1
  • 3. Death by suicide is no one person’s fault and prevention is everyone’s responsibility 2
  • 4. • However, there is hope. This presentation will share some successful practices driven by courageous, innovative, compassionate, and impassioned leaders, teachers, parents, and students. These practices have made the schools more humane, healthy, and engaging. Strong academics have been sustained and definitions of success have expanded. 3 FROM … TO …
  • 5. 4 … these kids, and what can WE do about it in OUR schools?
  • 7. 6 “Experts agree that anxiety is reaching near-epidemic levels among young people, with as many as one in eight children — and 25 percent of teens — contending with diagnosable anxiety disorders.” <https://t.co/irGmPMjDOC>
  • 9. “Outcomes” of anxiety, depression, mental health struggles. … • Disengagement • Truancy • “School Refusal” • Substance abuse • Cutting • Hospitalization • Credible Threats • and worse … https://www.americashealthrankings.org/explore/health-of-women-and- children/measure/teen_suicide/state/AZ Arizona Trend U.S. Trend 2016-18
  • 10. Nearly half of suicides in AZ occur in Maricopa County • In 2016, there were 1310 deaths. Maricopa County had the highest rate of suicide with 683 deaths. The youngest suicide was age 9; the oldest was age 96. • The majority of suicides were completed with a gun. • Suicide is not just a behavioral health concern… Suicide touches every family and community in Arizona, regardless of diagnoses, zip codes, ethnicities, or faith. 9http://www.sprc.org/sites/default/files/2018AZSuicidePreventionPlan.pdf
  • 11. PREVENTION: Understanding Myths • MYTH: All adolescents think of suicide. • FACT: Only about 12-15% of the student population (depending on location) seriously think about it. • MYTH: If I ask someone about suicide, I’ll put the thought in their head. • FACT: There is a large body of research disputing this myth (Madeline Gould et al) • MYTH: If someone wants to die by suicide there is nothing I can do about it. • FACT: Suicide is preventable and most who survived a suicide attempt do not try again. • MYTH: Suicide is selfish. • FACT: People who are suicidal often feel they are a burden to others 10
  • 12. PREVENTION: Understanding Causes • PRIOR DEATH: The number one risk factor for death by suicide is a prior one in your community or a neighboring one. • MENTAL HEALTH/DEPRESSION: Withdrawal, sleep habits, anxiety. • COPING WITH SETBACKS, TRANSITIONS, AND ISOLATION: “What am I good for?

  • 13. PREVENTION: Understanding Causes • EASY ACCESS TO MEANS: “Hot Spots” (railroad tracks, bridges), firearms, poisons. “Reducing access to means saves lives.” • IMPULSIVITY: suicide may occur within 10 minutes of having ideation and frequently occurs within 2 weeks of a major conflict. • INTIMATE PARTNER: Half of youth suicides are due to intimate partner problems. 12

  • 15. PREVENTION: VIGILANCE • WATCH FOR • Frequent sleeping in class can be a sign of sleep deprivation • Observable change in work habits, routines • Obsession with social media • Mood swings and impulsive outbursts • LISTEN to students’ peers • BE ALERT at especially difficult times such as • Media coverage of a celebrity (or age peer) suicide • College admissions (and rejections) • Anniversary dates of trauma 14
  • 16. CDC Suicide Warning Signs 15 According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention warning commons signs of suicide are: • Feeling like a burden and expressing hopelessness • Being isolated • Increased anxiety (extended or in cycles) • Feeling trapped or in unbearable pain • Increased substance use • Increased anger or rage • Sleeping too little • Talking or posting about wanting to die • Saying goodbye and/or abandoning prized possessions
  • 17. “While the vast majority of people (90 percent) who attempt suicide by another method survive, gun suicide attempts are almost always fatal. People who attempt suicide overwhelmingly report immediate regret, and most never attempt suicide again. Yet suicide attempts by shooting are almost always fatal, meaning the vast majority who attempt suicide with a gun never get a second chance to get the help they need.” 16https://www.sprc.org/comprehensive-approach/reduce-means MEANS RESTRICTION AND SAFE STORAGE SAVES LIVES
  • 18. SCALE BACK PERFORMANCE ARMS RACE • Discourage students from overloading with APs and Honors classes and from packing resumes with too many activities • Understand the realities of college admissions practices • Keep the quantity of homework reasonable and quality of homework high • Provide flexibility for due dates of major projects and tests • Eliminate (or at least reduce) stigma and barriers to help seeking 17
  • 19. EA Accelerates the Performance Arms Race Alliteratively, Bates, Bowdoin, Brown, and Bucknell have early acceptance rates more than double their regular admissions rates as do “Wash U” and Williams. Holy Cross, Conn, and George Washington University have early admissions rates in the 70% range.

  • 21. “Our school is comprised largely of perfectionist students who are terrified by the idea of failure. The race for a higher Grade Point Average (GPA) dominates in our community. Our worth and value in the eyes of our friends, family, and, worst of all, ourselves, is dictated by this number. Being ranked by GPA only worsens the crisis through constant comparison to each other. Mistakes, whether during lectures or on tests, become viewed by students, and even many teachers, as signs of weakness and stupidity.” 20 http://www.challengesuccess.org/blog/overriding-gamea-students- perspective-creating-school-policy-change-improve-engagement-well/ From a student …
  • 22. The student who took his own life had a full schedule of Advanced Placement classes—as a high school freshman. Why? Because he knew the reality of his high school's antiquated ranking and weighting system. The school only gives special weight (added points onto the GPA thus improving the class rank) if a student takes APs. 21 http://community.today.com/parentingteam/post/perfect-kids-need-not-apply From a parent …
  • 23. “Our teachers and District have simply created and maintained a system that our community/country has demanded from us over the past 20 years since college admissions mania went into hyper drive, since vocational training programs were dismantled, and since earning “A’s” in AP classes became the norm. Our teachers feel the pressure, administration and counseling feel the pressure, and now parents/students are really feeling the pressures. When we grew up nobody asked us what our GPA was, and it was “cool” to work on the roof of a house. This competitive culture has significantly impacted our young adults. We endlessly discuss test scores, National Merit Scholarships, reading scores, AP scholars, comparisons to other school Districts and this is when we start losing our collective souls--and our children.” 22https://theswordmovie.com/2018/02/01/a-letter-from-our-community/ From a principal …
  • 24. Barriers to help-seeking • Stigma of counseling • Not recognizing needed emotional support or professional help • Not knowing how to find help • Cultural/family traditions that value individual independence or frown upon seeking help outside of the family • The mistaken belief that your problems cannot be resolved, even with assistance • Lack of access to care, due to lack of providers and/or financial issues 23
  • 25. INTERVENTION: A … C … T ACT • ACKNOWLEDGE that you are seeing signs of depression or suicide and that it is serious. • CARE: let your child/friend know that you care about them and you are concerned that he or she needs help you can’t provide. (Do not leave the individual alone if at all possible); • TELL a teacher, counselor, or other trusted adult that you are worried about your child/friend. 24
  • 26. AVOID • Conducting memorial assemblies • Sensationalizing or glorifying • Allowing lasting memorials at school • Speculating on causes and analyzing motives • Spreading erroneous statements, rumors, etc. on social media 25 POSTVENTION: Memorials SUPPORT • Involvement in off campus memorial services • Living memorials (projects, memory book) • Opportunities for students AND staff to express full range of emotions and support for managing their grief • Truth and honesty along with family privacy requests • Return to healthy routines
  • 27. “Risk of additional suicides increases when the story explicitly describes the suicide method, uses dramatic/graphic headlines or photos, and repeated or extensive coverage sensationalizes or glamorizes a death.” 26 POSTVENTION: Media Control

  • 29. To close on a positive note: Attending to Social Emotional Health makes a big difference Students who are mentally healthy and social-emotionally sound are: 1. More likely to succeed academically 2. Have the self-confidence, resilience, grit, and coping skills to persist in the face of difficult challenges 3. More friendly and skilled in managing positive relationships 4. More engaged in and be connected to school 5. More likely to make wise decisions and thus less likely to have discipline problems 28
  • 30. Research shows the positive impact of social emotional interventions on learning 29 The ability to recognize and manage emotions and establish and maintain positive relationships impacts both readiness to learn and the ability to benefit from learning opportunities. In 2011, a team of researchers conducted a comprehensive meta analysis of school based universal social emotional interventions which included 213 schools and 270,034 students ranging from kindergarten through high school. On average, the researchers found that students receiving social emotional interventions improved significantly compared to those not receiving an intervention. Social emotional skills, social behaviors, and academic performance increased, attitudes towards self and others were more positive, conduct problems were reduced, and emotional distress lessened.

Editor's Notes

  1. Welcome DVUSD Staff and we thank you in advance for your time viewing this presentation. The following presentation is a response to the growing need to support our teens with mental wellness. First and foremost, the principals at our schools have been vocal about the need to better meet the well being of students in distress. Second, the DVUSD Governing Board held a study session on 10-30-18 that focused on how the District is supporting the mental health of our students. At this study session, DVUSD Administration presented a timeline of various trainings and events that have occurred over the past two years addressing this topic. The board appreciated the presentation and requested that administration take additional positive steps towards supporting staff and students in this area. Although we know this topic can be emotional, we believe it’s the right thing to do. This short presentation represents our desire to bring more awareness to this social problem.
  2. It’s a national problem. (Potentially pose rhetorical question ) -Could the students in the pictures on these two slides be our own students? Absolutely.
  3. Here are some facts specific to our state. (Give audience 1-2 minutes to read the slide.) Note that although suicide is the 8th leading cause of death in Arizona, it is the 2nd leading cause for youth aged 15-34. (If audience wants to know, accidental death (e.g. car accidents, etc.) is the leading cause.)
  4. We have been hearing from teachers that anxiety amongst their students is on the rise. This quote illustrates the urgency needed for us to be part of the solution. Please take a minute to read the slide. (Allow 2 minutes). Talk with your shoulder partner about how this quote resonates or does not resonate with you.
  5. In addition to anxiety, we also know that greater numbers of students are being diagnosed with depression. (Read the small print to the audience.)
  6. This slide displays the some of the outcomes that can result from a youth suffering form anxiety, depression and/or other mental health condition. (Direct audience to look at the two trend lines that display number of suicides per 100,000 adolescents aged 15-19 over the past three years. Ask the audience – Take a minute to look at the graph, what do you notice? Talk to your partner.) Participants may want to know more about why Arizona has a steeper trend line than the U.S.
  7. Here are some additional facts about our county. Please take a minute to read this slide.
