Teresa D. LaFromboise: "Cultural and contextual reconsiderations in Native American adolescent suicide prevention"
There is substantial evidence that Native American adolescents die by suicide at a rate four times greater than their White and US all races counterparts and that Native American adolescent females engage in suicidal behavior significantly more frequently than Native American adolescent males. However, minimal research on the differences and similarities in risk behaviors and psychosocial factors associated with suicidality by gender, enculturation, perceived discrimination, or substance use has been conducted with this group. Professor LaFromboise's presentation will shed light on limited findings in this area and highlight ongoing efforts to better understand local cultural meanings associated with gender and suicidal behavior.
Teresa D. LaFromboise is Professor of Education.
