Suicide Attempts Among Latina Adolescents: The State of Knowledge

This webinar reviews the state of knowledge on suicide attempts by adolescent Latinas who have reported higher-than-average rates over the past 30 years. Dr. Zayas will cover the developmental issues of adolescence and cultural and family systems that bear on Latina’s suicide attempts. Some time will be devoted to how the girls describe suicide attempts. Approaches to prevention and identification in schools and to family-centered treatments will be discussed.
