Populations at Increased Risk of Suicidal Behaviors
Start Date: May 14, 2014
End Date: May 14, 2014
Wednesday, May 14, 2014 2:00:00 PM EDT - 3:00:00 PM EDT
Injury Control Research Center for Suicide Prevention (ICRC-S)
This webinar will begin with a discussion about moving from “research and practice” to practical research. The speaker will present background information about the language used around suicidal behavior, the epidemiology of those behaviors in the U.S., and possible risk and protective factors. Research efforts will be framed within guidance from the Prioritized Research Agenda for Suicide Prevention, and connected to related international work. The presentation will also highlight the shift from using suicide attempt survivors as research subjects to engaging them as partners in the development and implementation of new studies.
In addition to considering ways to move research into practice, the webinar will consider ways to improve and/or promote promising practices through research and evaluation. Concepts such as help-seeking and help-giving will be proposed as prompts for community input as well as outcomes (i.e., asking the community “what would help?”). Ideas from individuals who lived through a suicidal experience will be provided on topics from peer support and connectedness to hospitalization and medication. Finally, the webinar will discuss the emerging emphasis on protective factors and moving from “high risk suicide prevention” to high stakes life promotion”.
