| $20 – $350

This course will examine teen and child suicide from a prevention model as opposed to the more ubiquitous ‘post-vention’ model. We will explore signs and symptoms of suicidal ideation, effective assessment as well determining risk level, lethality and acuity. Interventions and therapeutic tools to use when working with a suicidal child will be examined, as well as constructing an individualized safety plan. Risk factors and precipitating events that give rise to suicidal ideation such as bullying, physical and/or sexual abuse, domestic violence, or mental health issues will be discussed. We will also explore para-suicidal behavior and “cutting” and how it differs from suicidal ideation/intent.
