Identification and discussion of evidence- and scientific-based suicidal behaviors will be highlighted, along with strategies to prevent and minimize these unfortunate, in-custody deaths. Findings from scientific-based studies about humans dying from hanging by ligature will be discussed to show why most correctional “suicide watch” policies are deficient. Timely in today’s correctional environment, this User-Level program will give you the information needed to help identify, prevent, and minimize these tragic in-custody deaths.
