Discussion Question 2: Indicators of Suicide

Increased stress levels, feeling hopeless and alone, being bullied, or experiencing repeated physical or sexual abuse could all be reasons why some adolescents consider suicide. Adolescent suicide has far-reaching consequences on families, friends, communities, and schools. For this Discussion, use the Parker Family case study to consider the indicators of suicide. Also think about how you might react to students in this situation if you were a social worker in a school.

 

Post your answer to the following:

o    After learning about the character in the Parker Family case study, imagine that you were the school social worker. Which indicators would you have looked for and why.

o    How would you have responded to each of those indicators?

o    What kinds of questions would you have asked and why?

Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer.
