It is estimated that approximately 800,000 people die from suicide each year globally, making it the 2nd leading cause of death amongst 10- to 28-year-olds in the US. Suicide impacts individuals of all identities, ethnicities and socioeconomic backgrounds. Given its prevalence, it is almost guaranteed that a professional in a health care or counseling field will encounter suicidality during their career. In this talk, Dr. Wu will share statistics on the significant impact of suicide in both the United States and Taiwan, and review the current knowledge base regarding vulnerability factors for suicide. She will also cover evidence-based standards in therapeutic approaches for preventing and treating suicide, and will use several case examples to exemplify principles of risk assessment in suicide prevention. She will also briefly touch upon some cultural factors to consider in the treatment of suicide.
