Tip of Texas Counseling
I Want to Kill Myself, Now What?
Presenter(s): Mark Chapa
CE Hour(s): 1.0
Program Summary: So I’m a school counselor and my student says “I want to kill myself”, what happens next? Often counselors, in general, received a suicidal ideation outcries and follow the procedure set by their school or institution and “our job is done”. We know that suicide does not occur in a vacuum, so what happens afterwards, what happens to the student in crisis, to the fellow classmates and teachers, and what happens to the students’ family. A case study will be discussed. Ask, Seek, and Know. Ask information seeking questions about Ideations. Seek, training and resources to help someone with a suicidal ideation. Know, how and where to refer people with suicidal ideations. This will be our first all virtual CI! We will be keeping in close communication with you about the details for this event! TCA will be assisting in this virtual event and approving CE hours! Please plan for an all virtual session and accessible handouts for your audience! Thank you!
