(p.219) 8 Prevention
Suicidal Behavior in Children and Adolescents

Barry M. Wagner

Yale University Press

This concluding chapter discusses the prevention of suicidal behavior. It begins with a brief overview of the history of suicide prevention in the United States. It then discusses the major factors influencing the success of prevention programs. The chapter also discusses the theoretical basis for prevention. It proposes a theoretical model of the suicidal crisis that is common across suicidal individuals. This model includes four elements: emotional pain, difficulties regulating and coping with that pain, disconnection, and disillusionment. The theory is based on knowledge of the risk factors and is also reflective of research on suicide prevention.

Keywords:   suicidal behavior, suicide prevention, prevention programs, suicidal crisis, emotional pains, pain, disconnection, disillusionment
