DESCRIPTION : Why do the numbers in Wisconsin continue to either rise, or stay the same, when most of the country is seeing a decline in child/adolescent suicide? Who are we missing? The “One's We Miss” are most often children in out of home car and youth who are bullied. We certainly have a basic understanding of suicide, and what to do about it, but yet it continues to be a challenge. This training will address these questions and also provide you with ideas for case planning when working with families where suicidal behaviors and ideations continue to be challenging. This 6 hour training will include lecture, handouts, small group discussions and development of a system of care and crisis plan as part of case planning.


  • Understand the phenomenology of suicide and its impact on children and adolescents.

  • Understand the warning signs, risk factors, and also protective factors of suicide when assessing children and families.

  • Gain an understanding of the scope of the problem facing Wisconsin and thus Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice Professionals.

  • Awareness and understanding of who are the “One’s We Miss” including children in out of home care and youth bullied.

  • Have an opportunity to discuss several strategies currently utilized in Wisconsin to address the problem of child/adolescent suicide to use in case planning.

  • Develop a system of care and crisis plan for a child/adolescent in the system to use in case planning.

TARGET AUDIENCE: This training is appropriate for Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice social work professionals and supervisors who want to increase their knowledge about the impact of suicide on children and adolescents.
