What Would Emile Durkheim Say? Research Perspectives on Suicide: Trauma, Social Networks and Stigma
Monday, November 2, 2015: 2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
This session answers questions about culturally appropriate strategies that help populations at elevated risk for suicide: African American youth, Asian Pacific Islanders, homeless youth and women using substances. Innovative research methods are used to suggest a range of strategies that address prevention. This session features the 2015 Recipient of the Mental Health Section’s Kenneth Lutterman Award for Best Student Paper.
Session Objectives: Demonstrate the use of social network methods to map the distribution of suicide risk factors and suicide-related outcomes (e.g. suicidal ideation) in social networks.
Discuss culture-specific meanings of suicide and how to develop culturally-appropriate programs that address suicide.
Demonstrate principles for suicide prevention in diverse communities.
