Social workers know all-too-well that suicidal ideation is commonplace in school-aged youth. It is the second leading cause of death for youth ages 12-18 (CDC, 2017) and rates are only increasing in the time of COVID-19.  Studies have also found that adolescent suicidal ideation and attempts may be a reaction to stress or emotional distress (Tummala-Narra, Deshpande and Kaur, 2016) and the current climate intensifies these emotions leading to suicidal ideation and attempts.


Rates of suicidal ideation and attempts are also rapidly increasing in youth-of-color, and understanding the cultural context in which suicidal behavior occurs during this period of development can assist clinicians in developing better interventions to prevent suicidal behavior among young-of-color (Gomez, Miranda & Polanco, 2011).  It is critical that clinicians understand cultural humility, or the “ability to maintain an interpersonal stance that is other-oriented (or open to the other) in relation to aspects of cultural identity that are most important to the [person]” (Hook et al., 2013, p. 2) when working in diverse populations in the United States.


This training will teach social workers how to properly assess for suicidal ideation, learn when the level of suicidal ideation requires further assessment in a hospital setting, and will address cultural humility. It will also address outreach and assessment strategies to use during the current climate of COVID-19 and remote learning. The presenter will normalize the assessment process so that clinicians bring conversations about suicidal ideation into their daily practice with youth.



With this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Learn to understand the new levels of suicidal ideation in youth during COVID-19
  • Current step-by-step training on suicide assessment, hospitalization, reintegration, and collaborative care with outside therapists and the family/guardians
  • Normalize conversations about suicide assessment and risk
