Description

EP13 Invited Address 04 – Suicide: Where We Are, Where We Were, and Where Are We Going – Marsha Linehan, PhD

Moderator: Roxanna Erickson-Klein, RN, PhD

There is no area of research that brings a complex array of ethical issues into sharp focus more than conducting treatment trials when the focus is on decreasing suicidal behavior and preventing suicide. Historically, suicidal individuals have been excluded from treatment studies because their inclusion was thought to be unethical, unsafe or too difficult to manage clinically. This presentation will discuss where the field of suicide intervention research started, the successes and failures we have encountered thus far, as well as the critical issues that still need to be addressed in order to move the field forward. It will include a summary of the suicide intervention research trials, to date, and the directions the field is heading toward addressing the complex problem of suicidal behaviors.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the methodology and problems, to date, in suicidal research.
  2. Describe the methodology that is needed for suicide research.
  3. Describe clinical treatments and adequate treatment support for suicidal behavior.
