3-Hour CE Webinar in collaboration with Missouri and Hawaii Psychological Associations*
Suicides jumped 29% among adolescents ages 15 to 19 over the previous decade. In addition to those who die by suicide, there are many more adolescents who have suicidal thoughts or attempt suicide and survive. Youth suicidal ideation, attempt and completion are on the rise. One survey showed that 18.8% of high school students seriously considered attempting suicide and 8.9% actually attempted suicide. Dr. Guy Diamond, a psychologist and Professor Emeritus at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and an Associate Professor at Drexel University in the College of Nursing and Health Profession, has devoted his life to developing and researching effective attachment-based family-focused solutions to this serious problem. Most of his research career has involved working with low-income disadvantaged youth and families.
