"To Understand in order to Prevent" The Israeli Suicide Research Symposium
Dear colleagues and friends,
We are honored to invite you for the 5th Annual meeting of the The Israeli Suicide Research Symposium (ISRS) that will be held in May 15 2016 at The Academic College of Tel Aviv-Yafo.
Worldwide, more than 1 million people die by suicide each year and about 500 hundred in Israel. Although we have made significant progress over the last decades in our understanding of risk factors for suicide, as well as in intervention and prevention strategies, much has yet to be learned and remains to be done.
The aim of forth ISRS conference is to provide a forum of those who share an interest in suicide prevention, intervention and postvention, including researchers, physicians, Clinicians, Social workers, Students and Educators, as well as those who have lost a loved one.
The four ISRS will discuss recent results on suicide, describe evidence based assessments techniques and intervention programs of suicidality. In addition, The National Council for Suicide Prevention in Israel will update about their activities regarding prevention and interventions programs.
Dr. Beth Brodsky, a Professor of psycology and Suicidology and an international expert on psychotherapy with suicidal individuals, will present a keynote lecture titled "Evidance Based Suicide Prevention Interventions: How reserch informs clinical practice".
One of the highlight sessions will be "the next generation of the suicidality researchers". In this session, young investigators will present their innovative studies focusing in different aspect of suicidality.
The final session will discuss clinical cases by experts, as well as answer questions from attendees.
