For this Discussion, you view an initial suicide  risk assessment. As you evaluate the social worker’s actions, imagine  yourself in their place. What would you do, and why? 

To prepare:

  • Explore an evidence-based tool about suicide risk assessment and  safety planning. See the Week 3 document Suggested Further Reading for  SOCW 6090 (PDF) for a list of resources to review.
  • Watch the “Suicide Assessment Interview” segment in the  Sommers-Flanagan (2014) video to assess how it compares to your  findings.
  • Access the Walden Library to research scholarly resources related to suicide and Native American populations. 

Posta response in which you address the following:

  • Identify elements of Dr. Sommers-Flanagan’s suicide risk assessment.
  • Describe any personal emotional responses you would have to Tommi’s  revelations and reflect on reasons you might experience these emotions.
  • Describe the elements of safety planning that you would put in  place as Tommi’s social worker in the first week and in the first  months.
  • Identify a suicide risk assessment tool you would use at future  sessions to identify changes in her risk level. Explain why you would  use this tool.
  • Explain any adjustments or enhancements that might be helpful given  Tommi’s cultural background. Support your ideas with scholarly  resources.
