Program description from brochure:

It was well known that many examples of youth-perpetrated catastrophic violence were carried out by highly disturbed young men who were fundamentally suicidal. In many such cases, the suicidal risk of youth perpetrators is well known to parents, teachers, administrators, law enforcement personnel, and mental health professionals, yet tragic outcomes still occur. This presentation will offer practical information on the assessment of suicide risk, the interplay between suicidal and homicidal behaviors and a full range of intervention strategies suitable to a variety of settings. Using a lively case example approach, this presentation will provide critical information about how suicidal youth think, feel, and behave. Contemporary issues such as the influence of media, the role of internet, and peer influences will also be considered. Bottom-line, this training will enable participants to better recognize who is at risk for suicide and what can realistically be done to intervene and save lives.
