Suicidal Individuals: Evaluation, Therapies, and Ethics, Part 1 - 2007
There is no area of research that brings a complex array of ethical issues into sharp focus more than conducting treatment trials when the focus is on decreasing suicidal behavior and preventing suicide. Historically, suicidal individuals have been excluded from treatment studies because their inclusion was thought to be unethical, unsafe or too difficult to manage clinically. In this lecture, Dr. Stanley will explore the history of excluding suicidal individuals from clinical treatment trials because including them was considered to be unethical, unsafe or too difficult to manage clinically.
