Suicide Prevention in Children and Adolescents

In this training, we will review statistics related to suicidal behavior in children and adolescents, as well as more recent research on the impact of COVID-19 and suicidality among youth. We will identify common “red flag” indicators of potential suicidal intent/behavior, commonalities and myths about suicide, and relevant developmental considerations. We will review risk assessment areas to explore, the use of functional behavioral analysis when assessing for suicidality, as well as evidence-based screening tools and strategies for use in practice.
