Description

This presentation will cover more than "13 Reasons Why" teens consider suicide. The aim will be to help therapists and professionals understand risk factors that are involved in teen suicide issues, obtain knowledge regarding developmental issues during adolescence related to suicidal thinking and behaviors, gain awareness of protocols, assessment, intervention, and treatment options, as well as to develop knowledge of resources available to assist at-risk teens.
