Adolescent suicide topic of Ullman Conference on Children’s Mental Health
As the third leading cause of death for American teenagers, suicide is a significant health problem in the United States and worldwide.
The 10th annual Douglas G. Ullman Conference on Children’s Mental Health, focusing on “Adolescent Suicide: Assessment, Intervention and Prevention,” will use a varied and lively presentation format to instruct attendees on how to recognize and intervene with suicidal adolescents.
The conference is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. March 11 in 101 Olscamp Hall. The event is offered by Continuing & Extended Education and is sponsored by the Children’s Resource Center (CRC).
David Jobes, the featured presenter, is a professor of psychology (clinical faculty) and co-director of clinical training at the Catholic University of America. Jobes developed the Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality model and has trained a broad range of audiences in this clinical approach to suicide prevention.
The conference will focus on suicide risk in adolescents. Topic areas covered will include cutting-edge clinical research, training in suicidal states, ethical considerations and counter-transference considerations. An important subtext throughout the conference will be an examination of what makes life worth living—a critical concept that clearly applies to both suicidal and nonsuicidal patients.
This program is the 10th in a series of conferences on children’s mental health that honor and continue the innovative work of Douglas G. Ullman, a professor of psychology at BGSU and a founding member of the CRC. The center is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary community-mental-health program.
The registration fee for the conference is $139 and includes CEUs and lunch. To register, or for more information, visit http://cee.bgsu.edu/ullman or call 2-8181.
