    The Bullying Prevention Specialist Certification Program is designed to help school psychologists and other education professionals develop an in-depth understanding of the complex nature of bullying and develop strategies to address and stop bullying in the schools. This program provides participants with an introduction to research related to bullying behavior, information, helpful resources, and practical strategies to address bullying in the schools. Specifically, the course offers the following:

    • A working definition of bullying that will be helpful to educators
    • A deeper understanding of bullying behaviors and how they are manifested in schools
    • Review of research related to the problem of bullying
    • Practical ideas and helpful resources that can be used to raise awareness about bullying behaviors
    • Effective strategies for preventing and eliminating bullying in classrooms and schools

    School psychologists, graduate students, and other education professionals will be able to apply this valuable training within the school setting.

    The Certificate Program will be offered in four modules recorded online through NYASP’s ProProfs Seminars. Participants may take the course at any time. Each module is approximately two hours in length and should be taken in sequential order. All modules are supplemented by additional reading material. However, modules may be taken individually for those participants that do not want to pursue the Bullying Prevention Specialist Certificate.

    Description:

    Within and across school districts, practices vary widely in managing students at risk for suicide.  At one end of the spectrum, some schools require that police officers assess any student threatening suicide and subsequently escort the child to a regional hospital if they are deemed to be a “lethal threat” to themselves.  At the other end of the spectrum, school psychologists complete a risk assessment, provide brief intervention, and develop a safety plan for a child at-risk for suicide.  Such variability within and across school districts, and even among school-based mental health care practitioners, leaves them susceptible to role confusion and lacking confidence in how to properly address a student who is suicidal.

    Session Learning Objectives-

    • Acquire tools, knowledge, and skills to assist students having thoughts of suicide or engaging in suicidal behavior
    • Understand the necessity of pre-planning and standardized procedures for safety planning
    • Identify the importance of collaboration and shared decision making between school mental health professionals, administrators, community providers, and the student and his or her family in managing students at risk for suicide
    • View an example of documenting risk of suicide and safety planning
    • Be prepared to develop and implement standardized procedures in their schools/district that reflect best practice for helping students at risk
