Risk Factors and Warning Signs of Suicidal Behavior



This week you will share your thoughts on the risk factors and warning signs of suicidal behavior and how this influences your understanding of suicide risk assessment. Here are some ideas for your post to get you started:

  • How might the risk factors and warning signs addressed in the chapter vary by culture? What do you think the chapter missed if anything?
  • What surprised you most after watching the videos on surviving suicide?
  • Critique the Kundla, Sommers-Flanagan, & Governors Statue University video on suicide assessment, stating what deeply resonates with you. Note the use of terms no longer used in the field. How do you think current terms developed and why is this shift important?
  • What about this week’s content did you find to be of most interest?
