This workshop will examine suicidal ideation among school aged children. We will review the clinical epidemiology of suicidal ideation and gain insight into many contexts, from benign to serious, in which thoughts of suicide may be expressed. Participants will review the inter-relationship of child family systems and discuss the normative family system's range of responses to child suicidal ideation, that is to be expected, accepted and managed. We will practice assessing and responding to school age suicidal ideation to improve your ability to differentiate between serious and benign clinical situations, with discussion about next clinical practice steps in each scenario. Class size is limited to 50.
