School Violence and Suicide: Legal Issues and Case Review

March 20, 2024 @ 11:00-12:00pm GMT 

Register Now

The incidence of threats of violence and suicide requires that schools have well trained threat assessment teams. The presenter has been an expert witness in more than 25 cases where schools were sued after a tragedy and will share the outcome of those cases and the lessons learned for prevention and intervention. Several of those cases questioned the competency of the suicide and/or violent assessment done by school personnel. Best practices interventions for school counselors and administrators to prevent a tragedy and avoid liability will be outlined.

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify key factors that were involved in legal cases that questioned the assessment of threats of violence done by school personnel.
  • Learn the lessons from several legal cases after student suicides pertaining to parent notification and the suicide assessment conducted at school and whether when a student is 18 years or older parent notification is or is not required.
  • Understand the complex relationship between bullying and suicide and the outcome of numerous lawsuits filed against schools after students died by suicide because the victim’s parents were critical of the schools’ role in preventing bullying.

AI 101: Using AI as a School Counselor

April 10, 2024 @ 12:00-1:00pm GMT 

Register Now

In this webinar, I aim to foster an inclusive and judgment-free space for School Counselors, particularly those unfamiliar with AI tools, to engage in open dialogue about the potential advantages and challenges of integrating artificial intelligence into their School Counseling practices. Recognizing that I am not a tech expert, and that not everyone may be well-versed in AI applications, I want to create an atmosphere where School Counselors can freely express their thoughts, concerns, and questions regarding the use of this technology in their field. The focus will be on collaborative learning, allowing participants to share their experiences and insights, whether positive or cautious, and collectively explore how AI can be thoughtfully incorporated into School Counseling. By encouraging a supportive environment, I hope to inspire a constructive conversation about the practical ways in which AI can enhance the work of School Counselors while addressing any reservations or uncertainties they may have.
