13 Reasons Whyis a trending Netflix series that is wildly popular among students. After the lead character, Hannah, commits suicide, a classmate receives a series of tapes that identify the people and reasons for her decision. Due to the glamorization of teen suicide and the negative portrayal of Hannah’s experience with counseling, there is great concern among professionals about the negative impact on students – and the potential for a contagion effect.
What Can Educators Do?
This 90-minute webinar will discuss how teachers and counselors can use 13 Reasons Why as an opportunity to examine how students perceive suicide and to expand the conversation about suicide prevention. This series naturally opens doors to topics such as suicide, self-injury, sexual assault, bullying and the choices students make.
Presenter Kaye Randall, MSW, LISW-CP presents seminars on suicide and self-injury throughout North America and has written books on self-injury, bullying and depression. She will discuss how 13 Reasons Why presents an opportunity to check in on student perceptions of the series and to reset misperceptions surrounding what they have watched – including the process of seeking help.
The dialogue around the Netflix series, as well as the book by Jay Asher, can also provide an opportunity to look at and improve the existing framework for preventing and/or dealing with suicide and self-injury among students.
