College of Psychology hosting bullying and suicide workshop
Will take place in Tampa
You are cordially invited to join faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends from around Florida for this special presentation on an important topic. This evening will include welcome reception and a special presentation from nationally recognized, NSU faculty member Dr. Scott Poland.
"Bullying and Suicide: Keys to Prevention" will take place at 6:00 pm June 1 at the University Club of Tampa, located at 201 N. Franklin St. Ste 3800, Tampa, FL 33602.
Bullying in schools and communities is a national issue and media reports have attributed youth suicide to be largely the result of being victimized. Suicide is now the second leading cause of death for adolescents and estimates are that about 25% of young people are bullied with some frequency. The suicide rate for middle school age girls has increased dramatically and bullying and cyberbullying are associated with this tragic increase. This presentation will help school personnel, community agencies and parents understand their key roles in suicide and bullying prevention.
