The World Health Organization estimates that over 800,000 people die by suicide each year. Social workers often find themselves working in settings where suicide and parasuicidal behavior are of ongoing and significant concern and, therefore, are in need of specialized skills to address these potentially life-threatening situations. So, does social work education provide social workers with the resources needed to feel confident in addressing suicidal intentions? Have the response protocols in agencies that train and employ social workers kept pace with advances in dealing with suicidal behavior? In this episode, Dr. Rebecca Mirick shares her work developing a suicide intervention training program and the follow-up research she conducted to determine its impact on knowledge and confidence of those receiving the training.
