Increased risk of suicidal thoughts among adolescents appears related to recent victimization

Increased risk of suicidal thoughts among adolescents appears related to recent victimization | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

An increased risk of suicidal ideation -- thoughts of harming or killing oneself -- in adolescents appears to be associated with recent victimization, such as by peers, sexual assault, and maltreatment, according to new research.

 

"Although much research in this area has focused on neurological risks and psychopharmacologic interventions, these findings point to the importance of the environment and the value of victimization prevention in reducing suicidal behavior. A comprehensive approach to suicide prevention needs to address the safety of youth in their homes, schools and neighborhoods," the researchers said."

Julia Steiny: Why American Students are Playing Catch Up with the Rest of World

Julia Steiny: Why American Students are Playing Catch Up with the Rest of World | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
Julia Steiny compares America's education system with Australia.


Today we'll compare and contrast. We'll compare the Australian Education Ministers' goals for "Young Australians" with the U.S. Department of Education's goals.

Social Media: Why This Matters To Everyone In Education

Social Media: Why This Matters To Everyone In Education | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

..you would think we would learn the way these things work, which is this:

1) Everything that’s already in the world when you’re born is just normal;

2) Anything that gets invented between then and before you turn thirty is incredibly exciting and creative and with any luck you can make a career out of it;

3) Anything that gets invented after you’re thirty is against the natural order of things and the beginning of the end of civilisation as we know it until it’s been around for about ten years when it gradually turns out to be alright really. (Adams, 1999)

9 Surefire Strategies That Don’t Work for Kids with ADHD | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) impacts a person’s ability to focus on work or a project in order to get things done. Instead, a person with ADHD’s attention is divided, resulting in many people feeling like they’re just spinning their wheels.

The other month we looked at unsuccessful strategies for adults with ADHD.

This month experts reveal fruitless tactics for kids with ADHD. Some of these approaches aren’t just ineffective; they can exacerbate symptoms or impede progress.

The brains of teenage girls with behavioural disorders are structurally different to those of their peers, researchers have found.

The Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry study of 40 girls revealed differences in the structure of areas linked to empathy and emotions.

Previous work has found similar results in boys.

Experts suggest it may be possible to use scans to spot problems early, then offer social or psychological help.
