Overview

Life can be difficult and sometimes discouraging. Unfortunately, children and teens may feel particularly lonely and overwhelmed when their lives begin to crumble after an emotionally destabilizing event. That event might be a death in the family, a personal tragedy, an episode of bullying, a struggle with poverty, or some kind of existential stressor. Understanding these risk factors and how they contribute to youth suicide is the first step in recognizing and reducing suicides among children and teens. Join Tamara Hill, a licensed child and adolescent therapist and certified trauma professional, as she discusses the psychological, emotional, physiological, and neurological factors often associated with suicide among youths ages 7 to 20.

It's a shame that we need to think about this type of thing in our schools, but thank you for sharing this valuable information.
 
After listening to this webinar, I am now going to add the Beck Depression Inventory to my toolkit as an indicator of the depth of a child's depression.
