Suicide is a complicated phenomenon, and I have no doubt that additional facts will emerge as the case works its way through the judicial system, but no one — ever — should believe that crackdowns come without cost or that due process is an abstract concept, a mere inconvenience that stands in the way of social justice. As I’ve argued before, our universities stand on the edge of a constitutional crisis .

In applying a client directed outcome informed approach (Duncan, Miller Sparks, 2004), the caller is recognised as the 'expert' on their problem.

There are a few ways to prevent bullying from starting. The first thing is to prevent bullying with policies administered through the School administers and well as faculty members. Schools should make a policy that prohibits such acts and has implemented consequences that follow if the policy is broken. Policies may explicitly mention major types of bullying such as verbal, physical, and cyber bullying along with bullying people with disabilities.
