QPR Suicide Prevention Training

QPR, the “CPR” for suicide prevention, stands for Question the person about suicide, Persuade the person to get help and Refer the person to help. QPR is designed to increase your ability to recognize suicidal thoughts and behaviors and to refer a student who is at risk to campus and community resources.  In this session, counselors from the Canisius Counseling Center will offer QPR methods and resources for faculty and staff.   

For now, pencil these into your calendar.  Stay tuned to the Dome for updates and a sign-up sheet, since more sessions are in planning right now!

Institute for Autism Research Receives $925k Grant

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Autism Research Program announced that it awarded researchers at the Institute for Autism Research (IAR) a three-year grant totaling approximately $925K.  The grant will be used to test a unique school social intervention for autistic children.

Addressing the complex social challenges of autistic children (without intellectual disability [ID]) is difficult and social skills interventions are sometimes used in an effort to improve their social performance and outcomes. Despite the clear need, few receive systematic and effective social intervention. Studies of social interventions delivered in clinical settings for this population have suggested some positive effects but the benefits rarely translate to school settings. Efforts to develop and implement school social interventions have been hindered by barriers in the school environment such as lack of resources, staffing and training, and limited time during the school day. As such, there is a need for feasible and effective social interventions that can be delivered by non-professional (paraprofessional) school staff in school settings, including as part of after-school programs.
