Anne Moss’s Topic

The Emotionally Naked Truth About Student Suicide

Audience: Special educators, instructional aides, special education students, general community service people

Description: It was a teacher who first told Anne Moss Rogers that her son, Charles, might be suffering from depression. And it was a teacher who wrote the most heartfelt note after her son died by suicide. It was also the environment that exacerbated his feelings of worthlessness. Based on the book, Emotionally Naked: A Teacher’s Guide to Preventing Suicide and Recognizing Students at Risk, this presentation will empower educators with the skills to leverage their relationships with students to reduce this threat to life. Educators will learn the cryptic and often veiled ways students cry for help, how to respond and what to do. Attendees will also learn ways to model and embed SEL competencies and facilitate connection, the foundation of suicide prevention.

Learning outcomes:

  • Real-life signs of suicide in youth and what to say/do
  • Examples of how other teachers have seamlessly built connection, mindfulness, and coping skills into their classroom culture
  • Lesser-known transitions when students are more at risk
  • Roleplay from real-life scenarios
