So, should steroids be legal? What do you think?
Should Physician-Assisted Suicide Be Legal
With the increase of direct communicated threats, suicidal students and at-risk behaviors across college and university campuses, the creation of Threat Assessment Team (TAT) and Behavioral Intervention Teams (BIT) has also risen to address these concerns. Counselors and psychologists have been left to sort through their involvement on these teams. On one hand, we know that close to two-thirds of cases discussed by teams have mental health and substance abuse involvement (NaBITA survey, 2012). On the other hand, clinical staff struggle with the ethical limits to information sharing and identifying the best ways to communicate and participate on these teams. Join Brian Van Brunt, president-elect of the National Behavioral Intervention Team Association (NaBITA), as he offers advice and guidance on how clinical staff can uphold their ethical guidelines while offering consultation and much needed assistance to those involved in keeping a campus safe.
Should Steroids Be Legal? | T Nation
One of the most difficult situations to deal with on today’s college campus is managing the process of hospitalizing a student for psychiatric reasons. Residential life staff is often concerned about the impact of suicide attempts on other students and their residential life community. Deans and Administrators are concerned about potential liability to the college and how they can receive the information they need to make key decisions involving the student remaining on campus, interim suspension, ADA regulations and parental notifications. Counselors are often concerned for the student’s welfare and returning them back to campus safely. Join Drs. Van Brunt and Gunn as they share their experiences and review national data related to managing suicidal students on campus. Dr. Gunn will also share his perspective as the current president of the American College Counseling Association. This program will discuss the key elements of the process involved when a student attempts suicide, how the student should be evaluated and transported to the hospital, how information is shared with parents, the pros and cons of interim suspension versus a medical leave of absence, and how to keep both the student and the greater community safe. The program will be designed around seven key areas related to suicide attempts, hospitalization and the methods by which a student is then removed from campus or returns to the community.
