Designed as an introduction to suicide prevention, this one-hour podcast reviews common myths regarding suicide-related behaviors and provides an overview of the theories for suicidal behavior by individuals. Using evidence-based suicide frameworks can serve to more effectively help identify people at an increased risk for suicide and inform effective interventions. During this podcast, Dr. Jill Holm-Denoma of the Department of Psychology at the University of Denver, and Director of Denver University’s Clinic for Child and Family Psychology, reviews several key theories for suicidal behavior and, offers a case study example to illustrate the application of the theoretical frameworks of the assessment and treatment of suicidality.
