Webinar Description

This talk will begin by discussing the limitations of some current approaches to the assessment of suicidal risk in youth.  We then will review some more recent innovations in identifying youth at high suicidal risk, including adaptive screening, the Implicit Association Test, and machine learning of health records, and of social media posts. Then, we will discuss steps involved in the development of an effective safety plan and the development of a safety plan and linkage to services, and the effectiveness of safety planning in reducing suicidal risk. Finally, we will conclude with an overview of some safety planning apps that may have clinical utility.


Qualifications:

Dr. Brent is Academic Chief, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital and holds an endowed chair in suicide studies at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. He directs Services for Teens at Risk, a state-funded program for suicide prevention, education of professionals, and treatment of at-risk youth and their families. Dr. Brent is a member of the National Academy of Medicine. He has been recognized for his research by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, the American Psychiatric Association, and the Brain and Behavior Foundation. His work has focused on the identification of risk factors for adolescent depression and suicidal behavior, and on the translation of those findings into clinical interventions. He has helped to establish standards of care for the assessment and treatment of depressed and suicidal youth. His current work is focused on the use of brain imaging to gain insight into how suicidal individuals think about death and suicide, the use of adaptive screens, machine learning of electronic health records, and passive cell phone data to identify suicidal risk, the prevention of suicidal behavior in youth who have been recently discharged from psychiatric hospital, and on the use of technology to improve the ability of pediatric primary care practitioners to detect, triage, and manage depressed and suicidal youth.

Agenda:

This talk will begin by discussing the limitations of some current approaches to the assessment of suicidal risk in youth.  We then will review some more recent innovations in identifying youth at high suicidal risk, including adaptive screening, the Implicit Association Test, and machine learning of health records, and of social media posts. Then, we will discuss steps involved in the development of an effective safety plan and the development of a safety plan and linkage to services, and the effectiveness of safety planning in reducing suicidal risk. Finally, we will conclude with an overview of some safety planning apps that may have clinical utility.

Learning Objectives:

  • 1) The attendees will be able to describe the rationale for screening for suicide risk in in pediatric EDs and the advantages of using an adaptive screening tool.
  • 2) The attendees will be able to describe the rationale, methods, and major findings of studies that apply machine learning to electronic health records in order to delineate suicidal risk.
  • 3) The attendees will be able to describe how machine learning when applied to social media and to fMRI neural signatures of suicidal people illustrate the role of self-referential thinking in suicidal risk.
  • 4) The attendees will be able to describe how to generate a safety plan, and how a brief inpatient intervention and a safety planning app can protect high risk youth against recurrent suicidal behavior.
