Coping with Suicide in Secondary Schools: Are Teachers Prepared?

David W. CHAN(陳維鄂)

Abstract

The presence of suicidal ideas in the past week was reported by about two in every five students in the survey of 161 secondary school students. Assuming that suicidal ideation and completed suicide lie in the continuum of suicidal behaviors, this alarmingly high rate underlies the importance of school-based suicide prevention programs. Another 110 secondary school teachers surveyed however felt that they were inadequately prepared to handle suicidal behaviors. When faced with student suicidal behaviors, they would resort to rational explanation in postventive efforts. Their under-emphasis in attending to students' emotional reactions revealed areas at which teacher preparation need to be addressed.

摘要

在一百六十一名中學生中,每五名學生中約有兩名報道他們有自殺的念頭。假若自殺念頭和成功自殺是輕微到嚴重的自殺行為,校本自殺預防實在重要。調查一百一十位中學教師的結果卻發現他們感覺對處理學生自殺行為的認識和事前準備都不足。若面對學生自殺行為,他們會向學生理性解釋,他們普遍不大着重對學生情緒的處理是教師準備工作應該注意的地方。
