Managing Suicide and Violence Risk While Building Resilience: Practical Applications in Clinical, School, and Community Settings Student suicide and school-related violence occur daily across this country. Managing risk and building resilience in patients continues to be of pressing importance to child and adolescent psychiatrists and other mental health professionals who often are asked to evaluate students who are identified as having some level of risk for suicide or violence. The AACAP Committees on Training and Education, Schools, and Disaster and Trauma have come together to present this Institute, which emphasizes the importance of prevention, strength-based approaches, and building resilience. Presenters with extensive experience assessing and managing risk in individuals, in schools, and within larger communities describe strategies to identify, understand, and manage risk in patients who make threats of violence or self injury; and describe the best-practices in response to community and school-based trauma caused by violence and suicide.
