Adolescent Suicide

 

In 2013, suicide was the second leading cause of death for young people ages 15 - 24. It is essential for mental health clinicians and other professionals working with adolescents to understand the dynamics of suicide among young people so they can be more proactive and effective in working with the adolescent clients they serve. After providing a foundation on how widespread the problem is and the prevailing theories about what impels individuals to commit suicide, this course will teach you about assessing for suicide risk among your adolescent clients, including suicidal behavior among special population groups such as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersexed youth. You will learn about warning signs to watch for and ways to effectively work with adolescents, including intervention and prevention strategies.

Adolescent Suicide is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 18.
