Novel Approaches to the Assessment and Management of Adolescent Suicidal Behavior

This talk will begin by discussing the limitations of some current approaches to the assessment of suicidal risk in youth.  We then will review some more recent innovations in identifying youth at high suicidal risk, including adaptive screening, the Implicit Association Test, and machine learning of health records, and of social media posts. Then, we will discuss steps involved in the development of an effective safety plan and the development of a safety plan and linkage to services, and the effectiveness of safety planning in reducing suicidal risk. Finally, we will conclude with an overview of some safety planning apps that may have clinical utility.
