Treatment Approach to Teen Suicide: An Ethno Culturally Informed Perspective

Suicide and suicide attempts are epidemic among adolescents aged 14-19 years in the United States, the third leading cause of death. Teen suicide presents as a major crisis for families, and often times their responses are colored by their cultural perceptions of suicide, coping styles, spiritual inclinations, family and community supports, as well as their pattern of help seeking behaviors. In this Workshop, participants learn how to implement a culturally sensitive family oriented model of crisis intervention for teen suicide as well as how to utilize culturally rooted and contextually-based interventions in a therapistís treatment approach to a suicidal teenager and his family.
