Every 31 seconds someone attempts suicide in the United States. Every 13 minutes someone dies from suicide. It impacts families and communities in deep and painful ways. It impacts us personally and professionally.
Suicide is an action that most of us prefer not to hear about. Why? It’s tragic, desperate and we may feel helpless. Is it because we don’t think it will happen to anyone we know? Why is it so stigmatized that it is rarely spoken of especially by the treating clinicians?
What do you know about suicide in Manhattan? Hanging is the most prevalent way at 28%, followed by jumping off our skyscrapers at 18% in comparison to 2% nationwide. Our subway systems account for 7%. Nonetheless, Manhattan’s suicide rate is about half the national average.
How much, as professionals, do we know about evaluating our suicidal clients? Working with families who have a suicidal member or who have suffered a loss due to suicide? Dealing with colleagues or our own suicidal ideation and how suicide impacts our personal and professional lives?
WHAT CLINICIANS WILL LEARN
• When it is time to refer when you speak with someone with suicidal ideation
• How to work with families to anticipate, control, or eliminate suicidality
• What you need to know to protect yourself legally
• How new technologies (i.e., Iphone apps) be used as 21st century adjuncts for clients and clinicians
WHAT ACADEMICS AND RESEARCHERS WILL LEARN
• How research on suicidality often continues to exclude the depressed or anxious with or without mental diagnoses and why new research is needed
• Why we as a profession stigmatize suicide to the point that we don’t even keep statistics on psychologists who commit suicide
• How new technologies help prevent suicide
