A national survey of school counselors’ experiences with student death by suicide
Haugen, J.S., Waalkes, P.L., & Lambie, G.W.
We examined school counselors’ experiences with student’s suicide. Our quantitative findings identified that encountering the death of a student by suicide is common for school counselors during their careers. School counselors reported a range of personal and professional reactions and relied on different sources of support following students’ deaths. School counselors who experienced student’s death by suicide had higher self-efficacy scores related to suicide interventions than those who had not experienced a student’s suicide.
